List of feature requests

Question

Hello!

First of all I must say Medved Trader is an absolutely amazing program, I love how I can customize everything. Rather than write a individual post for everything I wanted to just make one with a bunch of stuff I'd love after using it for almost a year now.

  1. Combine historical and intraday charts somehow, it's rather difficult at the moment to look at a daily chart, map out some levels/trends and then have those same drawings on your intraday chart. Now I don't know if combining them or what not makes sense, but some way for them to be a single entity in regards to drawings.
  2. Add a new drawing tool, simple horizontal line, exactly like the line tool but without the ability to change degrees. This is purely an ease of use feature.
  3. Spike filtering fixes, right now spike filtering is super annoying, watching SPY/IWM/QQQ/TSLA or anything like that on a 5 min or premarket and you'll end up with tons of spikes that you need to manually filter, at the moment I zoom in, right click, delete lowest point, and that's rather annoying. I don't find I have this issue with other platforms of similar capability (DAS, Sterling, etc), I've tried a few different feeds and they all give me tons of spikes. I don't know if the answer is AI/MI or something, but I've played around with the spike filter settings and cannot find a perfect value to fix this issue.
  4. Collapse option chain by default, right now when you open up the option chain it takes forever, needs to get all the values for all the different dates. It would be better if they where collapsed by default just showing like maybe the next exp date or something similar to TOS. That would make it easier to load it up (IB takes like 30 seconds at least to load an entire option chain).
  5. Market replay, this is a larger feature, but it would be nice to be able to back test or market replay to practice trading.
  6. Alerts on CASH or BP, so you could set an alert if you are down $200 for the day or something as a way of helping with risk management.
  7. Ability to specific an account per type, say you have IB for options, WeBull for shares, and Binance for crypto. It would be nice to be able to say, all option orders go to IB, all equity trades go to WeBull, and all crypto goes to Binance.
  8. A warning if you have a open position upon closing, there has been a few times I've pressed my close key and for some reason my hotkey bugs out or something and I am left with a open position, it'd be nice to get a warning saying you have a open position upon closing.

That is my list of feature requests, any questions let me know.

Thanks again for the amazing software.

For number 2 just hold the shift key while drawing and it will be zero degree

:) I guess I gotta respond to the whole thing:
 

  1. Combine historical and intraday charts somehow, it's rather difficult at the moment to look at a daily chart, map out some levels/trends and then have those same drawings on your intraday chart. Now I don't know if combining them or what not makes sense, but some way for them to be a single entity in regards to drawings.

    *** I do think about whether/how to do this once in a while. It is tough because even though a lot of code is shared, a lot is also specific to intra or historical. Even stuff like certain indicators only available for intraday and not historical charts, the internal structures that hold the candles, different way of drawing grids, etc.
     
  2. Add a new drawing tool, simple horizontal line, exactly like the line tool but without the ability to change degrees. This is purely an ease of use feature.

    *** Press SHIFT as you're drawing.
     
  3. Spike filtering fixes, right now spike filtering is super annoying, watching SPY/IWM/QQQ/TSLA or anything like that on a 5 min or premarket and you'll end up with tons of spikes that you need to manually filter, at the moment I zoom in, right click, delete lowest point, and that's rather annoying. I don't find I have this issue with other platforms of similar capability (DAS, Sterling, etc), I've tried a few different feeds and they all give me tons of spikes. I don't know if the answer is AI/MI or something, but I've played around with the spike filter settings and cannot find a perfect value to fix this issue.

    *** have you played with the various parameters for the spike filtering system in the general Settings?
     
  4. Collapse option chain by default, right now when you open up the option chain it takes forever, needs to get all the values for all the different dates. It would be better if they where collapsed by default just showing like maybe the next exp date or something similar to TOS. That would make it easier to load it up (IB takes like 30 seconds at least to load an entire option chain).

    *** done, also added the collapse/expand buttons in the View tab on that window. And yes IB is HORRIBLY slow with the option chains.
     
  5. Market replay, this is a larger feature, but it would be nice to be able to back test or market replay to practice trading.

    *** We have the replay almost there but other things keep crowding in front. It would be a replay for a particular symbol, though, not the whole market.
     
  6. Alerts on CASH or BP, so you could set an alert if you are down $200 for the day or something as a way of helping with risk management.

    *** you mean on trading account balances?
     
  7. Ability to specific an account per type, say you have IB for options, WeBull for shares, and Binance for crypto. It would be nice to be able to say, all option orders go to IB, all equity trades go to WeBull, and all crypto goes to Binance.

    *** that's an interesting concept... The problem here is that the trading ticket has specific features for the account with which it is associated. We'd have to think on that.
     
  8. A warning if you have a open position upon closing, there has been a few times I've pressed my close key and for some reason my hotkey bugs out or something and I am left with a open position, it'd be nice to get a warning saying you have a open position upon closing.

    *** we already have that for one of our versions. Will have Jerry dig that out and see if he can put that in MT.

Interesting, Ya it does seem like it might be challenging. Is there a way you could copy/paste the indicators? Like tradingview?

Yes pretty much every day I try a different setting, so far nothing catches everything. SPY/IWM/etc seem to be the biggest issues.


Market replay, this is a larger feature, but it would be nice to be able to back test or market replay to practice trading.

That's very very exciting, and yes a particular symbol works great!

Alerts on CASH or BP, so you could set an alert if you are down $200 for the day or something as a way of helping with risk management.


*** you mean on trading account balances?

Yes, trading account balances.


I read the forum topic that says one per a post after I posted, apologies for that.

Yeah, I wouldn't combine the charts either for efficiency and uniqueness reasons. However, the way eSignal does this is through an overlay script added to the Historical chart that "watches" the intraday chart for drawings or indicators. The script then plots the drawing or indicator on the historical chart. Perhaps in MT there could be a right-click option on a drawing, for example trendline, called "Copy to Historical" and then MT plots the drawing on the historical chart using the price coordinates from the intraday chart.

Can the front week and front month remian un-collapsed? I guess those two are the most used.

Also, please make the header row in different color. Right now, you have to kinda go through each row to figure out where the next/week month's options start.
