  1. Add column Minimized True/False many times hit the minimize on a chart and then takes a long time to find the min chart
  2. I have several requests but as a new user I am overall really enjoying the platform. These requests would just make it that much better. I hope you will consider implementing some of these requests in the future. Thank you Frequency linking on intraday charts. I have 50 small thumbnail charts that I watch and it would be nice to change the frequency of all the charts at once instead of having to do each one separately I like to capture my trades each day and like to see where I was filled on the chart but the fill arrows are so big they cover the chart itself. Any way to have the fill arrow be below the entry/exit candle instead of on them or the ability to have no arrow but just the dotted line with the capsule showing # of shares below Darker title bars/windows on the Dark visual style Ability to add padding on X-axis because the date and day of week interfere with the intraday timeframe chart early in the mornings Ability to pre-configure and save bracket orders by stop size Show Spread value in Level I quote area on Level II window/DOM Show what Exchange symbol is listed on in Level I quote area on Level II window/DOM Hovering over symbol in the chart title bar shows company name
  3. have the option to lock all close X boxes on charts,portfolios when moving around charts sometimes hit the wrong part and close the chart pain in the neck to have to open a chart again and remember what symbol was on the chart. Unless ctrl z works on actions ?
  4. be able to band a group of charts mine 18 charts in 3 rows of 6 and then right mouse option to 'size to fit' evry time i upgrade windows 10 all my charts sizes get changed and it takes me a while to re do them and they never look that great all slightly different and not quite in the right place never have the time to adjust them all
  5. Hi Mike, Hi Jerry and all quick question is it possible to sync the DOM to a Chart , meaning when the prices move on the DOM the current candle on CHART would be in-sync with it , i understand that the scale on the CHART is different than that on the DOM ,but my idea if that sync can be applied programmatically it could give a visual idea of whats happening on the limit book . Thanks in advance

    copy an paste

    I guess copy and paste in a chart do nothing? Is there anything like the ctrl-S save copy of chart in QT
  7. Jerry I recently downloaded your beta Medved and what can I say your program is outstanding. I was a longtime QuoteTracker user and this new revised program is like riding in a Mercedes. One tip for users is to do make portfolio(s) from your Finviz scans. For example if you trade biotech issues just download the bio tickers in a simple scan and download them into a MEDVED portfolio. I start watching the bio action at 7:30am each morning when the data starts flowing. One can see all the movers and be ready for the open. For users who would like to see more ways to use the program just follow me on twitter @bman_alerts
  8. CAN'T CHANGE THE FREQUENCY ############################ WHEN ##### I started noticing it yesterday, or the day before, which was shortly after I said "OK" to an automated update from the previous one to the current version 1.08 170.1018. SEVERITY ######## Medium. While this one does not crash the application, it severely limits its functionality. GENERAL DESCRIPTION #################### In the upper left corner of the (stock) chart, any (stock) chart, you can select the "Main" tab, and if you do, then you can select "TYPE", "PERIOD", and "FREQ". Well, 15 minutes ago -- and this is not the first time in the last couple of days --- this "FREQ" got stuck on its "1-minute" setting, and the "FREQ" drop down menu kept refusing to appear. HOW TO REPRODUCE THE BUG ########################### 1. Ensure your version number is 2. Open the application. 3. While the app is still loading, click on (therefore open) any of the (stock) charts you can find sitting there, minimized, in the lower left corner of your screen. 4. Once the (stock) chart is open, then in the upper left corner of the (stock) chart, select the "Main" tab. 5. Then select (or make an effort to select) "FREQ". 6. Assuming that earlier you worked with 1-minute charts, at this time you may find that "FREQ" is stuck on its "1-minute" setting, and that the "FREQ" drop down menu refuses to appear. 7. Should you find this to be true, then close and restart the application. 8. Sometimes this one time "exit and restart" is all you need. 9. At other times, if this "exit and restart" is no help, then you need to exit and restart the app, not once, but up to three times. This is all. I hope this helps. Rob P.S.: Jerry and Mike, I do appreciate the time and effort you and your guys put into designing and coding the most recent revision of Medved Trader. However, I don't have to give you any feedback, and you guys don't have to improve, re-design, or re-code anything at all. What I would like to see is that - compared to Quote Tracker - your Medved Trader becomes a better product in every shape and form. Additionally, let's keep in mind that, by definition, 'all' bug reports tend to be negative, The issue is that, as to negative stuff, it's human nature that we often fail to see the good intention(s) behind it. However, I sincerely would like to see that you will be able to sell your (new MT) software to stockbrokers such as TD Ameritrade. I would like to see that you succeed, and that your MT is better than your QT. Rob
  9. I found the problem with 60min pre-market charts. 60min shows pre-market only in the "Current Day" mode, and it doesn't work in the "Default (During Ext. Hours)" , or in the "During Ext. Hours" modes.

    How Do I

    How do I. On Charts Get back info window in upper left Showing time ,hi,lo last Now missing ??? Thanks JS
  11. This request is not fully thought-out, as it just occurred to me and i thought I'd jot it down... Here goes: It would be nice to be able to pick up tweets from the twitter feed, as they relate to stocks that one is following, and then display on the intraday (or historical) chart(s) where those tweets occurred. Since it is possible that a stock may have a lot of twitter activity, you'd want to be able to specify not only tweets by symbol ($XYZ) but also filter them by a select list of @handles for people whose tweets the user is interested in. Example : Plot tweets on $XYZ based on handles (@vrtrader64, @medved, @benbernanke)
  12. After some time, a user may accumulate a number of old trendlines and fib lines and other drawn objects scattered throughout a multitude of charts. In some cases the user may want to update the drawn objects; in other cases remove them. But there is no way to quickly find such objects, so it requires visiting every chart. There ought to be a way to find, view and if needed revise/remove these objects from a list. This may be similar to the quoteGrid, but would have columns that correspond to the object type. From the list, the user would bring up the relevant chart for revision.
  13. I am having trouble ensuring consistency across intraday charts when showing extended hours trades. The amount of data varies depending on how active a particular stock is in extended hours. That makes the time period shown in EH vary by stock. Example below: charts of GDXJ and GLD show Ext.Hrs for current day, and GDXJ starts at 05:54 while GLD starts at 05:27, so the time axes do not line up. Is there any way in MT to specify fixed period(s) for extended hours (i.e. 06:00-09:30 and 16:00-17:00) so that the same time frames are shown no matter what symbol is selected ? If this is not currently possible, would you please add it as a feature request ? Thanks.
  14. The raw data window can "filter" what is displayed so you can optionally see just trades or blocks. Could you use that setting to also filter what is shown on the intraday charts? (e.g. display charts of only block trades) This would be very handy to eliminate visual noise due to oddlot trades. If more than one raw window is symbol-linked to an intraday chart or charts, you could plot values according to what is in each of the raw windows. Thanks for considering.
  15. This hardly qualifies as a bug, but is not a feature request either. It falls more in the category of a fix for a minor annoyance. ISSUE: MT draws, and then re-draws charts when switching to a new symbol. The visual effect is that the chart "jumps" a bit before settling down. This appears to be due to the rescaling of axes. I.e. chart draws, axes are re-sized, chart re-draws within new axes. It only happens the first time that a new symbol is selected during an MT session. It would be better to have the chart only draw once, using the proper axis dimensions from the start.
  16. Can you please add a right-click menu option to create a line parallel to the currently selected line? Thanks.
  17. A little different request - related to pairs. Currently MT supports ratio (relative) charts but only line charts. I would like to plot ratio Bar charts (historical and intraday). Like so: Thanks.
  18. With auto-backfill, switching symbols in the QuoteGrid with symbol-linked historical charts triggers a backfill. When the selected symbol has not been used in a while, the amount of data requested can be substantial, which generates lag while the backfill takes place. I am wondering if it is possible to backfill missing history for symbols in active QuoteGrid even when they are not selected. This would best be done during times when MT resource use is low. If this were done, switching to a new symbol would instantly create the needed chart.
  19. When padding is added to a chart, a couple things should be different (i think) : 1) Pivot line indicators should be extended into the padding area, to help visualize potential support and resistance levels. Example of how Stockcharts.com does it: http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=GDX&p=D&yr=0&mn=7&dy=0&id=p37160368203 2) The time scale should extend into the "future" as necessary and display upcoming date/time values in the x-axis, accounting for the selected trading calendar. 3) When pivot line indicators are selected, if a chart has padding and the data permits, "future" pivots should be displayed. Example: a 15min intraday chart is padded with 3 hrs of extra bars; after the close of the session, tomorrow's pivots are available and could be shown.
  20. An idea for a powerful / easy-to-implement new feature: Please add a new table for the user to create / select / analyze pairs of related securities. The table would have two columns, each column being assigned a pushpin color. Selecting a row in the table will select the corresponding symbol pair which (through symbol-linking) will load data into the relevant charts / data tables. Example: Column1 (Red) Column2 (Blue) SPY KO GDX ABX QQQ AAPL An alternative implementation allows independent pushpin pairs for each row. Another aspect is to allow the user to create/save/load multiple instances of such "pairs" tables.
  21. I don't see much point in having different templates for each symbol (Although "Set as Default for All" can be set). Instead, we should have a set of setups (e.g 5 min, 4 hours, daily, weekly) that applies to any chart opened, and should be able to switch in between. Each chart template may obviously have different indicators applied.
  22. It may be personal taste but... MACD histogram should be shown as bars, paired up with the candle (or at least, the option thereof). The full fill also makes the MACD lines difficult to see. The histogram should be scaled down so the lines are more visible. I have added two snapshots of TSLA 5-min today, one from MT one from IG. http://forums.medvedtrader.com/index.php?/gallery/image/6-/ http://forums.medvedtrader.com/index.php?/gallery/image/5-/ I actually find IG's image much easier on the eye. Thanks.
  23. I will say this one more time - you guys are building a fantastic product. Thanks again. And I will add a request to the many I have made, for a (semi-)unique feature: please add a new chart type to plot Instrument X vs. Instrument Y. Removing the time dimension enables the analysis of the relationship between two instruments: you get insights unavailable by just looking at an instrument's time history. Example: a single stock's price vs. that of its sector ETF When plotting data, the user should be able to specify: dots or blobs for each data point (dot for last vs. last, blob for hi-lo vs hi-lo). whether to connect data points with a line. a sub-sampling multiplier so that if data is stored at, say, 5s intervals, it may be plotted at any integer multiple of that interval (e.g. 10s, 20s, etc.) starting and ending date/time for plot, with sliders for each endpoint A note: to make this work at the intraday level you may need an auxiliary time-consolidated database, where data points (hi-lo-last) are stored at specified sample intervals, e.g. 5s, 1min, or 5min. PS I realize this is not a trivial addition - but I consider it a highly-desirable feature that would further distinguish MT from the pack. Thanks again for your consideration.
  24. Right now we can click to select trendlines, and use right-click menu (or 'Del' key) to delete them. This is good. Can you apply the same trick to make it easier to Hide indicators ? (Left/right click to select; right click menu, or 'H' key shortcut to Hide.) Also, a couple pet peeves about the "edit indicators" dialog : 1) it uses a huge window that can obscure an entire chart; please make the window smaller. 2) in the right pane, it requires a left-click to first select an indicator, followed by a right-click to access the menu - could you change it so the right-click selects the entry *and* brings up the menu ? Save mouse clicks! 3) could you give the Hide/Show action immediate effect (not require "Apply") ? Thanks as usual for considering my suggestions and once again, let me know if I am throwing too many your way. I can dial it back.
  25. Hi, can you explain why bid/ask lines are not available on tick charts ? Thank you.
