Hi,

SF shows that Telechart active and sorted active watchlists should be available for display as a watchlist in SF.

I have both programs open and want to work from a WL that is based upon and EZ scan in TC2000, but the list of symbols and related columns do not appear in SF.

What did show up was only the first symbol from the TC2000 WL.

TC2000 has streaming scan = off, and I am using 1 min timeframe.

Please advise how to get SF to show the entire WL from TC2000.

Steve

The StockFinder link is to TC2000 v7, not to TC2000 v17.

Not good news!

I got a lotta money used up to pay for these two programs and there were no alerts that signing up for TC2000 v17 would no longer work with SF.

When will TC2000 v17 be reconnected to work with SF?

Nothing has been taken away. TC2000 v11/v12/v16/v17/v18b has never worked with StockFinder and never will.

The only linking that has ever been between StockFinder and TC2000 is being able to access the active list from TC2000 v7 in StockFinder (TC2000 v7 is still available).

Introduction for TeleChart Users (9:36)

I guess you could use the Web Browsers feature of StockFinder to bring up a web version of TC2000 (currently this would be TC2000 v12.5 only), but this isn't a supported feature and there wouldn't be any actual link between the two programs or a way to make the web version display a particular symbol from within StockFinder.

I hear ya.  With the evolving programs and I guess perceptions about what customers are doing, the linkage was not kept backwards compatible.  At the time I began using SF, the ability to work with the two programs was advertised as an advantage and I think it was.

TC2000 was able to create/sort watchlists during the day faster than SF, so there was the big advantage for me.  I got very involved using SF and for quite some time, and did not continue with TC2000, so my recent sign on to use TC2000 again and seeing what works/doesn't work was the origin of my comments.

Needless to say, I was surprised when I could no longer take advantage of the linkage that was previously available between the two programs.

 

Best work-around I came up with was to start from an open TC2000 WL, use Copy All Symbols To / Copy to Clipboard, and then to paste into an open WL in SF.

It's not the end of the world, but it makes a manual task from what was once automated, and in the hurry up of daytrading, it's just one more overhead thing taking up my time.

As a suggestion, you could ask those who develop software to keep features backwards compatible with SF.  Pretty sure it can be done.

 

Thx 4 your clear reply.  Will take it from here.

Steve
