    Best data source for index?

    Yea not having volume on SPX makes things tough because it limits which oscillators and indicators can be used. I have streams from TD, Ally, and Interactive Brokers and none of them provide volume on indices unfortunately.

    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 😎

    Default Quantity

    Yep... something dumb on my end as usual. TY Sir

    Default Quantity

    Hi Jerry, I know it's something stupid on my end I am missing. I've gone over the help section and searched the forum for an answer I've been trying for a while to figure this out and I'm at my wits end. I simply just want the default buy quantity to be $2000 worth of the stock at it's current price so I don't have to do the math. The trade ticket and chart trading always comes up as 0 no matter what I try and change in the account settings for the default quantity. What am I doing wrong here?

    Demark Sequential

    Yep works like I wanted. Sorry again. You can go ahead and delete this

    Demark Sequential

    Yea it is.. saw Demarker and Pivots and totally missed sequential right below it. My bad.
  7. Hey Mike, Is it possible to add Demark Sequential to the scanner? I've really come to like it as an indicator and would like to be able to do a historical scan for securities that have hit a certain number of the sequence. In particular Demark candle 4 or 5. But also it would be good to be able to add Demark 9 to a scan so I know when to look for a reversal. Utilizing Demark with Heiken Ashi has really improved my trading lately. Just sucks because I have to look through countless charts to find something that's around Demark 3-5 and a scan would make things so much better.

    Jumpy Data Streams for 1st 30 Mins

    Got it. Thanks. Figured it was something dumb on my end

    Jumpy Data Streams for 1st 30 Mins

    Hmmn I went around the settings and set everything to TD Ameritrade as that I could find. I'll see how tomorrow morning goes and get back to you. Thanks Jerry

    Jumpy Data Streams for 1st 30 Mins

    Hmmn.. I have the data streams for TD and Ally both enabled in the settings so I can toggle if needed. But when I have a portfolio open its always set to TD Ameritrade by default. Do you mean something like having multiple portfolios open with say one set to TD the other to Ally? If so then not that I am aware of. I do however have indexes like SPY, DIA, IWM, VIX etc on my index panel as well as included in the portfolio. Perhaps that's an issue?
  11. So for the last week or so I've had this issue every morning where the data coming into MT is "jumpy". Meaning like this morning the SPY was jumping from 272.20 to 273.50 within seconds and then back to the correct price. This causes weird candles and screws up all my indicators. I thought it was just the TD Ameritrade stream being glitchy but it happens when I switch to Ally or Yahoo as well so it's gotta be something on my end. After about 10AM or so it levels out and brings in stable correct data and I can clear all and backfill and get everything right again. But that 1st half hour is obviously crucial. Any ideas why this might be happening? I believe I'm using the latest Beta but maybe a setting I toggled or something is screwing with it.

    Coppock Curve

    Any chance in the future you can add the Coppock Curve indicator? Or is there an indicator already built into the platform that is similar? A good amount of the Ebooks I've been reading on option spread strategies seem to be based on the Coppock Curve set to: Short ROC: 11 Long ROC: 14 WMA: 10

    Renko Scan?

    Is it possible or even feasible to utilize the historical scanner with Renko candles? Say with a parameter of 1% alert when Renko forms a green brick after a certain string of red bricks. I'd assume doing it by percentage and not price movement would be the logical way. I love Heiken but seems like Renko could get me in trend reversals sooner.

    Tastyworks support?

    tastyworks | Support Team via pm.mtasv.net 8:39 AM (0 minutes ago) Hello Robert, From what I’ve heard from our developers, they are targeting to release it sometime in Q4. I’ve added your e-mail to the API mailing list so you can stay on top of all things related to the API, Best, Jason Looks like I'm going to have to wait a while.

    Tastyworks support?

    Any chance you guys have any upcoming plans to support Tastyworks within the charting platform? Seems like they have the best pricing structure for options buying on a cash account since Robinhood doesn't support it 😡. I'm a bit spoiled now that I figured out how to buy and sell positions on your platform and I don't want to switch brokers unless you plan on supporting them in the near future.
