  1. Medved Trader caches the data that it gets throughout the day and for charts, so when a split occurs, you need to tell it to adjust. Here is how to do it Click on the portfolio editor button on top top of the portfolio window or Edit Portfolios tile on the dashboard. On the portfolio Editor, click on the symbol that split, then in the window that comes up specify the split ratio and check all the boxes. Specify the Split date, though should already be defaulted. If you have more than one symbol that split, repeat the same thing for the other symbol.
  2. I have 2 watchlist each with just under 500 symbols. S&P 500, and another with stocks not in the S&P 500 that I like to watch. Both of these are fed from TD Ameritrade for a total of 948 as it shows on Sources. I have the boxes checked to automatically backfill intraday and historic charts. Each morning when I load up MT I connect it to TDA and IB TWS for futures trading and stock trading. I use TDA as feed and backfill for stocks watchlist. At 8am when I turn load MT I push the backfill button on the SP500 and it goes for about 10 seconds then stops (using TDA as backfill). Then I pus
  3. TD Ameritrade Backfill has problem with data 1 hour off since DST (not including current day). Issue was reported and they will fix. Meanwhile, we fixed it in MT - select FILE / HELP => Check for Updates. Let MT update everything then Restart MT (even if nothing got updated)
  4. Futures & FOREX with TD Ameritrade datafeed are now supported in the new beta: https://medvedtrader.com/beta
  5. Hi, I was wondering if there are any noted current issues with backfill. Normally backfill is lightning fast updating all symbols. When I tried using it Friday and today, it's now acting very slow/sluggish taking minutes to process where prior it took seconds. Stocks process slow but completed. I had to initiate backfill on the chart directly in some cases for futures data. My data sources are IB, Ameritade, Tradeking, and Yahoo finance. This is the first time I'm experiencing such a slowdown. Update: This is the error message that was triggered- not sure if it's relate
  6. MT is now able to get both Intraday and Historical Backfill from CommSec, starting with the lastest beta: http://www.medvedtrader.com/beta
  7. Hi, JM! A request for hotkeys to go on your to do list when you have the time please. Backfill would be the most useful to automate the process with a small task scheduled vbscript, then an export followed by a shutdown of MT, at the end of the trading day. Let me know what you think. Cheers
  8. Hi, I noticed today that my intraday stock charts were missing a few days (6/22-6/25), but when I clicked the portfolio "Backfill All" button, the charts would update to fill the gap. However, when I click on individual charts within the portfolio and click on that particular backfill button, the chart gaps are filled in. I'm using TD_Ameritrade as my backfill data source.
  9. 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.
  10. Currently, there is a small status indication in the "Data Sources" part of MT Dashboard, but there is no way to know how far along a multi-symbol backfill has gotten, and how much more may remain. I'd like a more informative progress indicator, maybe in its own window. It could even have a button to allow user to cancel a backfill in progress. If not in its own window, maybe in the status area of the QuoteGrid from which the backfill was requested? Also - a question - when I do a "Backfill All", does it backfill ALL PORTFOLIOS, or just the portfolio corresponding to the window on whi
