  1. I'm using MT with TD Ameritrade quotes (for stocks). I notice that my SPY charts often have very large, bogus spikes, especially outside regular trading hours (9:30 AM- 4:00 PM EST). I can get rid of them by typing shift-ctrl-H or L, although this usually freezes the charts for several seconds. Sometimes there are 4 or 5 spikes on SPY charts, within a few bars.
  2. Excellent. Thanks for the real-time response!
  3. I'm currently using TD Ameritrade for data and I'm happy with it. However, I would like to chart futures as well. Is there a way to use my IB account for futures charts only?
  4. I have a couple of questions. Can I set up OCO orders using MT? I'm with Interactive Brokers and they allow OCO's, but the interface isn't very user friendly. Ideally, I would like to automatically populate a stop order or two, a target order order or two, then a trailing stop once price went my way by a specified amount. Once an order executes, I would like to see remaining orders reduce their size accordingly (for example, if a target order executed for half the position, existing stop or trailing orders would reduce in size to half the position as well). My other question is about wind
  5. I'm using Interactive Brokers as my intraday quote source. Sometimes a few symbols aren't updating on the charts nor watchlist, even though my TWS window shows streaming quotes. Recent problem symbols: GDX, GDXJ, UNG. I changed quote source to TD Ameritrade and that restored streaming quotes. However, when I switched back IB quotes again stopped for the above symbols.
  6. I tried adding MT as an exception in Avast, and it didn't make a difference. I also shut my antivirus off for a few minutes, and it didn't help. I minimized all MT windows, and that brought the CPU load from MT quickly down from about 80% to less than 5%. Unfortunately, restoring the windows caused the CPU load to move back up.
  7. Occasionally MT uses a lot of CPU on my computer. It comes and goes - I haven't figured out what brings it on or when it leaves. It is not related to busy times in the market. Currently (10:15 AM PST on a Tuesday), Medved Trader is using about 85% of my laptop's CPU. Normally it uses about 10 or 15% or so. I don't know where to find the version I'm running currently, but it is the latest one I was prompted to download (a day or two ago, I believe).
  8. Intraday. I believe the quotes stopped, too, but only some symbols.
  9. The last couple of days, intermittently, some of my charts stop updating.
  10. Jerry, I've been using QT for years with TD Ameritrade. I would like to try the MT beta. I'm going to be using IB in the near future. Thanks, Roy
