  1. I've also had this issue recently. Get an error unable to pull up option chain from TD Ameritrade. If I switch the feed to Ally it'll pull it up, then I switch it back to TD and then it tends to work fine from there. Not sure if it's a Medved issue or just a sketchy data feed from TD.
  2. So I went over to Equity Alerts and looked at some of the screenshots of the new Clearlines indicator working in Medved. Unfortuently I can't really zoom in the screenshots enough to get a good idea how it's working. It does seem pretty interesting and something I could probably make use of. Can you provide any more info on it? Is there a way to get get like a week trial on it or something? I'd like to be able to fiddle around with it a little and see how it works for intraday before I commit to buying it. Is anyone here currently using it that has any input on how it works?
  3. Hmmn downloaded and ran the update again. My program version is saying 1.1.8400.1 x64 is that the correct version for the update?
  4. Ok installed the update Jerry emailed me. Changed the parameters in the paintbar. But still getting the red X
  5. Ok have the update and trying to make this work in the paintbar. As per the screenshot above I'm trying to get an alert when a red wave turns to green, or green turns red. By your instructions I believe I should be doing it such as in the attached screenshot. Having the value cross up one or equal one but on the paintbar it's giving me a red X. So I don't think it's playing nicely. Any ideas?
  6. Gotcha. Thanks Mike. Really liking this indicator thanks for adding it.
  7. So I mostly been daytrading SPY options as of late and I've been messing around with the new Weiss Wave indicator you added in the beta and I'm liking the performance when set to the parameters in the screenshot. I'm trying to implement it into a paintbar and I'm noticing there isn't any criteria to select for the paintbar. If I wanted a paintbar to alert the start of a new green wave like the circle in the attached screenshot how would I go about coding it?
  8. 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.
  9. 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 ?
  10. Yep... something dumb on my end as usual. TY Sir
  11. 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?
  12. Yep works like I wanted. Sorry again. You can go ahead and delete this
  13. Yea it is.. saw Demarker and Pivots and totally missed sequential right below it. My bad.
  14. 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.
  15. Got it. Thanks. Figured it was something dumb on my end
  16. 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
  17. 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?
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. One last question.. I promise. If I wanted to take that code you posted above and mesh it together with these indicators from another paintbar is that possible? I tried it myself but I am getting {} imbalance errors. Or am I asking too much of one scan? // Var Name: "ADX_PlusDMI" contains ADX(8,10).PlusDMI // Var Name: "ADX_MinusDMI" contains ADX(8,10).MinusDMI // Var Name: "FULLST_Line" contains Full Stochastic(14,3,7).Line // Var Name: "FULLST_Signal" contains Full Stochastic(14,3,7).Signal // Var Name: "MACD_Main" contains MACD(12,26,9).Main // Var Name: "MACD_Signal" contains MACD(12,26,9).Signal public void MainCalculation() { if (ADX_PlusDMI.CrossesDown(ADX_MinusDMI, 0)) { SetColorAndShape(SysColor.MainIndicator3, PBShape.X); TriggerAlert("ADX DOWN"); SetScanResult("0 ADX"); } if (FULLST_Line.CrossesDown(FULLST_Signal, 0)) { SetColorAndShape(SysColor.MainIndicator6, PBShape.S); SetScanResult("1 -Stoch"); } if (MACD_Main.CrossesDown(MACD_Signal, 0)) { SetColorAndShape(0xFFFF0A0A, PBShape.M); SetScanResult("2 -MACD"); } if (ADX_PlusDMI.CrossesUp(ADX_MinusDMI, 0)) { SetColorAndShape(SysColor.MainIndicator2, PBShape.X); TriggerAlert("ADX UP"); SetScanResult("3 ADX"); } if (FULLST_Line.CrossesUp(FULLST_Signal, 0)) { SetColorAndShape(SysColor.MainIndicator11, PBShape.S); SetScanResult("4 Stoch"); } if (MACD_Main.CrossesUp(MACD_Signal, 0)) { SetColorAndShape(SysColor.MainIndicator2, PBShape.M); SetScanResult("5 MACD"); } } if (Close[5]<Open[5] && Close[4]<Open[4] && Close[3]<Open[3] && Close[2]<Open[2] && Close[1]<Open[1] && Close>Open) { SetScanResult("Green after 4 reds"); } else if (Close[5]>Open[5] && Close[4]>Open[4] && Close[3]>Open[3] && Close[2]>Open[2] && Close[1]>Open[1] && Close<Open) { SetScanResult("Red after 4 greens"); }
  24. Awesome thanks! Now is it possible to combine this same logic both ways in the same paintbar for an intraday scan? So say I want to play it for daytrading calls and puts on 5 min charts with HA. I want it to also alert when 5 or more green candles happen in a row and then a red so I could play a put. I've tried combining them together in the simple editor and it seems like I'd need some sort of command to break in between. My only solution is to have two identical portfolios open running opposite scans. But that uses alot of computer resources. Can they be combined?
