    TD Ameritrade is having some DNS problems and some ISP DNS servers have not been updated. !!!UPDATE!!! - the new beta version of MT takes care of this issue automatically. If you already did the DNS change, great (Google DNS is faster and more reliable than your ISPs). But now there is an easy way. Download the update from: https://medvedtrader.com/beta close MT, and install the downloaded file (do not need to uninstall anything) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I suggest a workaround is to use Google public DNS server, which is IP and backup I am using that and do not have the issue. Using Google DNS would also be faster browsing than your own ISP’s DNS. Also, DNS (with as backup) should work too, though I did not test it. Setup on PC Setting up Google DNS takes just a couple minutes and requires no technical skill or special software. Even if you’re a computer novice, pick your device below for an easy-to-follow setup guide.Click on the Start menu, then click on Control Panel. Click on Network and Internet. Click on Network and Sharing Center. Click on Change Adapter Settings. Right click on the Wi-Fi network you are connected to, then click Properties. Select Internet Protocol Version 4 Click Properties. Write down any existing DNS server entries for future reference. Click Use The Following DNS Server Addresses. Replace those addresses with the DNS addresses: For IPv4: and Click OK, then Close. Restart MT. There is also a YouTube video available for that if you want: https://youtu.be/IPSW0fgDlWc

    1) you can highlight all the rows now. Just click on a row and then hit CTRL+A or right click and select "Select All", then copy/paste 2) I am working on the "Sharing" system now which will let you "Share" either image or text of the various windows (all or selected text). Sharing targets can be Clipboard, File, Email, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

    TD Ameritrade never had a 20 symbol limit. Assuming you have Premium Access subscription for MT, the TD Ameritrade limit is 1,500.

    In general, we need the broker's cooperation. We have tried Fidelity and Schwab, but no luck. Schwab may be added in the future if they add an API. Fidelity - not no traction at all. We can add them without cooperation if someone gives us access to an account or if we have one, but that would be only for snapshot quotes, not streaming, and not trading. Because of that, we have avoided doing that.

    Ah, right - they are connected through Rithmic. As for Level II, their Level II/Market Depth is for futures only

    Yes, MB trading is for existing clients only now. New accounts are on the regular Ally invest system. Discount trading? I don't remember it being on our list. However if they use rhythmic or gain systems, then sure you can use that. As for different sources, sure you can do that. You can even have one level II window getting data from one source and another from another. Or two portfolios getting data from two different sources. The only thing is if doing that with portfolios, make sure they do not share any symbols or that will cause problems

    It could be useful for the community to share some screenshots and ideas about the setup each one uses on MT . And maybe to help others to understand how to use it at the best. There is a section for that (Gallery). I would like to encourage all of you to post yours! thx!

    I'll bite. Let's add in some logistics as well. Trading experience: 3-5 years Trading style: Day, Swing Platform: Interactive Brokers(Day trading), Robinhood(swing)(both integrated with MT) Securities: Options for day trading, stocks for swings My strategy: Intraday options momentum day trading. With options I don't have to be in trades very long at all to make profits. So I scalp using the leverage. I like to trade SPX, SPY, APPLE, AMAZON, TESLA, and DIA mostly because of their liquidity. I've tried to cut down on the indicators I use and have been studying price action mostly. I prefer HA candles with HMA and DEMA moving averages. I prefer PPO to MACD and really try and utilize the Demark Sequential for my scalps. I like 10 minute candles so I can see the true trend. I typically buy at the start of a new candle in a trend around Demark 3-4 and sell on the next candle or one after. I'm not greedy when it comes to options. They move so fast but the leveraging allows me to scalp for some decent size profits. So nothing fancy really. I'd love to see a screenshot of Mike and Jerry's setups 😎

    MB Trading and TradeKing accounts are both part of "Ally Invest" and both qualify. We recommend MB Trading. NOTE: You may want to fund above $500 so if there are data fees, or stock fluctuations, it will not cause the account to go below. Keep in mind that their whole purpose for this promo is to have people trade, not just keep the money parked, so doing what you suggest wouldn't help that goal.

    the account value would have to be $500 for MT to stay on Premium access. Not just opening. if you have that many free trades available elsewhere, may be better to just pay for the premium access for the time being. Will be much easier.
