  1. I can honestly say I've never seen those choices before. I'll give it a try. You know, I think a better human interface design decision would have had those three little (but important) choices that are now tucked in the bottom-left corner placed instead at the top with all the other choices. What's more, those three choices are only visible when the search tab is selected, in which case the eyes are focused where all the action is -- at the upper left-hand corner. The Help window has to be set quite large because of the large font and images, so it's not obvious that there are sel
  2. Well, I only get one response for each search, and they are different. One for dividend and a different response for dividends. Maybe you should look into how updates are done as to how all older files are treated. Perhaps it is best to completely uninstall an older installation before updating to a newer version (as opposed to installing over an older version). The last time I got a message to update, I waited a few days till the weekend to download the file and install it. On the following day I turned on the program and got another message saying I needed to update. I thought,
  3. Nope. Did it many times, over and over. Just did it again. Even closed the program and restarted it, and did it again. Get one response without the s, get a different single response with the s, never get two responses. After you do the search, make sure you hit the Display button, or double-click the list, to refresh your display of the result.
  4. We have a problem Houston: Searching on "Dividend" causes another subject to turn up but not the one you have. To get what you have requires typing in "Dividends". See the difference? Your search engine cares about the "s". Your Help search engine should not be plural sensitive. There are probably a few other suffixes that the search engine should not be sensitive to.
  5. I can reduce History charts and I can reduce Intraday charts and I can even reduce the Options window, and I can expand them again one-by-one very easily as they are easily found above the taskbar. But I cannot reduce Portfolio windows. Attempting to reduce Portfolio windows turns them off completely – they disappear, in which case I have to literally go to the Dashboard and turn them back ON. Once I use the Dashboard to turn back ON a Portfolio, the Dashboard disappears, so then I have to go to the taskbar again to turn that back on so that I can turn the other Portfolio (a horizont
  6. I don't have a membership with SC, so I don't even know if they have a switch to turn ON/OFF dividend adjustment. However, I look at their charts all the time and my very recent and limited comparison of their public (non-membership) chart and an MT chart after turning ON dividend adjustment now matches. When you refer to what most sources do, I presume you are referring to data sources and not chart sources. StockCharts.com is by far the most common chart I see posted at iHub, and it is the only online chart I use, and I use it very frequently. They are adjusted for dividends FWI
  7. Comparing data between StockCharts.com and MT, there is a difference. MT shows the same result for data sources of either Yahoo or TDA. The difference gets larger when looking farther back in time. After doing a little checking, the difference appears to be due to dividends. If so, how can I turn that off so that my charts agree with Stockcharts.com?
  8. If you saw that number at the TDA site, then it is a TDA problem. I think that is what you are saying. The number was much larger earlier in the day, so it is a type of error that is easily detect. Then I would say that they ought to have a means of automatically monitoring the integrity of their data, then immediately fix the problem or send a message out to users that there is a problem and that they are working on it and when they expect to have it resolved. It seems like forever that I've had similar data problems with Yahoo stock quotes. It's gotten a lot better, but they
  9. Watching unusual options activity on WDC today. Reported at iHub the volume I saw at three strikes. After the close, two of the strikes remained as showing high volume, but the third one did not. So ... I thought maybe I made a mistake, so I checked volume at E*Trade. Well, their numbers agreed with mine, but not MT. WDC according to my earlier numbers and verified at E*Trade: $77.50 1,278 $80.00 1,451 $82.50 1,259 MT numbers: $77.50 27 $80.00 1,451 $82.50 1,259 Changing the source of the data made no difference. The serial number o
  10. "Watchlist is just a list of symbols." Just symbols? Not exactly. It's got a lot more than just symbols. It has everything else I look at, which I limit to seven columns. Should I ask, "what else does a watchlist have that a watchlist doesn't have"? As it turns out, I should have searched for watch*. Thanks for the humor.
  11. Portfolio vs Watchlist: Did a search on Help to find out what the difference is between a Portfolio and a Watchlist. Am I not allowed to "watch" a portfolio? Found three entries of this "portfolio/watchlist" result which infers they are the same thing. Found two other Help entries for "watchlist" but always connected to "Portfolio"; so again, could be the same thing. But, in the context of the next paragraph below, they apparently aren't the same, at least in a small way. Why would I care? Because I was trying to figure out how to get rid of the Total row because I have no use for i
  12. This problem (template Load or Save drop-down lists not loading) happened again today. The setup was that I had four charts open: $SPX daily and intraday, and $VIX daily and intraday. I was in the process of modifying a specific $SPX historical template to add SMA(320) to a group of six other SMA()s that I already had for the particular template. I wasn't doing anything with the intraday charts. During this process both the Load and Save drop-downs were working on both historical charts. After saving the historical template changes for the $SPX chart from that chart, I decided to look
  13. I see ... so it's a TDA thingy. Why am I not surprised?
  14. The name (description) currently applied to UVXY by MT is: ProShares Ultra VIX Short That name (or description) is incorrect, especially as it implies that UVXY goes down as $VIX goes up, and vice versa. A better description of UVXY is: ProShares Ultra VIX Short-Term Futures A satisfactory (shorter) new name that MT could use would be: ProShares Ultra VIX Short-Term
