  1. Would it be possible to make it so that if you double click on an alert line it goes to the edit alert window. Currently if you double click on the alert line the chart window maximizes or goes back to window mode.
  2. I am seeing a few intraday charts with their scale values and the right crossed out... eg attached
  3. For any of the commodity futures symbols here https://finance.yahoo.com/commodities/ I am able to pull them up in Medved by assigning a portfolio to yahoo which is showing current price information. However the name column doesn't populate, is there any way to have it populated? I don't see any historical chart data for them either. For example I have had XAUUSD=X in my watch list for quite some time but the historical chart is empty.
  4. Would be less of a concern if there was some way to group minimize /maximize trade windows seperate from the rest of medved. But currently if you have 10+ trade windows open it is a pain to try and minimize each one then if you need to trade quickly be able to go back and maximize them all.
  5. That means if you want to trade fast you can't or you have to go back into the setting and adjust. My thought about a lock/unlock button that is easily accessible is so you can temporarily lock out any accidental trades across the board. Eg kid jumps in your lap and is going to try and start hitting keys or clicking buttons. or you are working on something else and go to minimize a window to get back to what you were working on in medved which is still open on some windows so you can keep an eye on it in the background. If you turn on confirmations you are then prompted every time you make a trade and if you have many accounts and trade windows for the same stock across which you are trading at once then you would have to deal with a confirmation for everyone all the time. Just a thought... would be really useful for me.
  6. Would it be possible to add a button to lock/unlock being able to action trades? Quite often I am working on other things during the day and could accidentally click a buy or sell button when I minimize another window or move one. A lock button would be great as a safety feature. Thinking just somewhere in the dashboard window. Even one in each trade window that worked independently would be cool but probably overkill.
  7. Screenshot shows the second example using Trade ticket button in the dashboard. 2019-01-31 23_22_02-.png Right side the Tan pin trade windows Across the top to the left of the tan are 4 trade windows created left to right 3rd one I changed to yellow pin but still got the 4th one white. This was a second round of testing where the new windows seem to be stuck to white now instead of the original tan as described above.
  8. Sorry missed getting back to you on this. From a pretty basic initial problem. I have my portfolio window linked to the blue pin, chart linked to the blue pin, both are displaying stock SCU:CA. I have 8 trade windows for ACB:CA all linked to the Tan pin displaying for diff accounts with current share counts for each account. If I activate SCU:CA in the porfolio window so its on the chart as well then right click on SCU:CA in the portfolio window that has the Blue pin and click trade I don't get a new trade window, but all my Tan pinned trade windows now display SCU:CA. My expectation would be that I would get a new trade window for SCU:CA either linked to the blue pin since the porfolio I right clicked on was blue or not linked to a pin since its new. Seems like maybe since my default account has a trade ticket open for the tan pin already the right click trade SCU:CA is using my default accounts pin and just activating it to the new symbol instead of creating a new ticket? Expected behavior? I also then just made sure SCU:CA was selected in the blue portfolio window then went up to trade ticket in the dashboard and selected a new trade ticket for one of the accounts that had a Tan pin that already had an open trade ticket and was showing ACB:CA and got a new trade window for it. Then I changed the pin to a new color (white) and tried to create a new ticket again and got a tan ticket. The next time I got a white one and kept getting white ones even if I closed all white pinned trade ticket windows. very confusing... I would expect here to get a new blank trade window not linked to any pin. Screen shot in Dropbox
  9. I have multiple trade tickets open for a single specific symbol across multiple accounts all tagged to the tan color tag. I have another couple trade tickets open on my screens for another couple accounts (some over lap) for other symbols which use other colors Red, pink, etc... If I go to my portfolio window/watch list and right click on another stock that I want to open a trade ticket for and click trade for some reason instead of opening a new trade ticket all the trade tickets for the Tan color tag are set to the new symbol. As well the share counts are left the same as the were for the previous symbol. I already tried changing the tag on the Tan colored tickets in case something else was using the Tan color but that didn't change what occured. If I try and use the new ticket button on the main dashboard It creates a duplicate of what looks like the first ticket, even thought there may be multiple tickets for that account opened. Even if thje last thing I clicked on was another newer ticket for that account. I actually just deleted the first ticket which kept getting duplicated and it got recreated even though there was another ticket for another symbol for the same account opened. Basically I have no way to open a new blank ticket for an account or open one for a specific symbol....
  10. When you click on the dollar value for buying power or cash in a trade window it doesn't follow the rules for the account to round the share count. Could it be configured to do this?
  11. I have many trade windows open at once all the time which are taking up all my real estate on my taskbar. I tried unchecking the box in general settings "Separate task bar icon for trading windows" but then there is no way to restore a trade window you minimize as there become no task bar items to click on at all for trade windows. Is it possible to have at least one taskbar item which when clicked could restore all trade windows when the box is unchecked? Another option would be to be able to group the trade windows or create a multitrade window To reduce the need for so many monitors it would be great to be able to group windows or lock them to some layout which could then have its own taksbar icon. This would allow that virtual layout window to be minimize/maximized independently. That way you could have a bunch of charts, trade windows, etc for one stock and easily switch over to another full setup for antoher stock that is attached to another virtual layout window. I think I might have already asked something similar before, can't remember.
  12. When you get an alert for news for a symbol. ie the little pop up boxes. Is it possible to instead of spawning the chart for the symbol when you click on the text in the box, could it spawn the actual news article in a browser? Or is there something I am missing on the pop up that can be clicked to open the article?
  13. Is there a way to clone a window in Medved. Eg. I have a trade window open and want to create a copy of it with the same info?
  14. I'm using Stockwatch (subscriptions service) for all my data now instead of Questrade, been working well in Medved.
  15. Can we create our own hotkeys? If not could one be added for this? I find its something I constantly want to flip between and QAT are at a premium
  16. Is there a quick way to toggle between drawing a line and an alert line?
  17. Would it be possible to have mouse position activate the focus instead of waiting for a mouse click? Would there be negatives to this if it's possible... overhead, etc. Any reason someone would want to keep focus on the prior window after moving the mouse away?? The only thing I can think of is if someone wanted to use arrow keys to scroll up and down a watchlist or news list and still be able to use the mouse roller on a chart window. Or now that I think of it maybe someone would want to use a hotkey in trade window to execute a buy well having your mouse elsewhere (this in itself might make my idea or mouse controlled focus a bad one).
  18. Not sure if this is a bug or by design... When I move my mouse from one chart to another I can use my mouse wheel to scroll on the new chart I moved to without clicking on the chart. This is what I expect/want to happen. But If I keep my mouse in the new chart window I can use the scroll wheel and the new chart moves but if I press control-H to get a historical chart I get the previous charts historical chart. Any way to make the focus fully change to the new chart when the mouse moves to the new chart? Currently it's not until after I click in the new chart that pressing control+H brings up the new charts historical chart.
  19. Nice selecting all works for the individual accounts. And new orders placed in Questrade also show up immediately in that window as well. This leads back to one of the other requests I put in around a view of all accounts as this window would be the ideal place for it. In the window you have which shows positions, transactions, balances would be cool to be able to see combined output for each tab. Thought might be to.... in the account drop down tab have an ALL option and have check boxes beside each account so you can combine the view for all or specific accounts by clicking the check boxes. Would be really flexible and gives as great view when you are working out of multiple accounts, this way you can see total holdings, single view of all stock positions combined, and all current outstanding transaction so if you want to do a bulk cancel you could from there. Currently I have a window of Questrade open with my account view so I can see the combined balances and combined market value etc of securities I own since I am buying and selling across multiple accounts at the same time. From there I can cancel all orders as well. Questrade is quite unstable at times so getting this in Medved would be great but I imagine some of this would be a lot of work... Cheers, Jeff
  20. Wondering if there is a way to cancel all orders for either a single account or all accounts from Medved even if they were not ordered in Medved?
  21. Poking this thread, any thoughts Jerry. It seems a bit better now that I have cleared out sdata and started fresh.It was upt o almost 2 GB, now sitting at 500meg. I will pay more attention the next couple days.
  22. I'll pass that you saw it on to Questrade as well. I have been ok since last wed. Let me know if you see it again.
  23. Does Medved support bracket orders for Questrade? If not is it something that could be implemented?
