Topic: Needed support for day trading
Posted: Sunday, March 10, 2019 3:50:46 PM

Would be extremely usefull to have new PCF values, "TF" - timeframe, "B"-bar.  Various auto loaded dates as suggested in a prior post, TDATE, WDATE, MDATE, YDATE, etc.

Topic: Chart notation drawing tool
Posted: Thursday, March 7, 2019 2:26:47 PM

Please allow "abc" drawing tool to apply to all symbols like is allowed in the vertical line drawing tool.

Topic: Ordering of Scan Conditions
Posted: Thursday, March 7, 2019 2:01:25 PM

Please provide a means to reorder the sequence of scan conditions; move a condition up/down in condition list.  Currently it is necessary to delete then reenter a condition to change the order; this is a major pain.

Topic: Watchlist Info updating
Posted: Monday, October 29, 2018 10:24:23 AM

Thanks, Bruce.  Already have done that on normal watchlists, but even if realtime is allowed on column data is not always "current."   Trading watchlist data does not allow refresh data setting.

Topic: Watchlist Info updating
Posted: Monday, October 29, 2018 10:06:11 AM

When a symbol is highlighted, please do a recalc/update to all column data.

This is especially important when doing a slide show on trading watchlist/positions symbols. Currently, realtime data is not being kept upto date/time.

Topic: Show Trading
Posted: Wednesday, October 24, 2018 4:41:58 PM

On/In the show trading summary info value set at top left of TC screen; please add/differentiate  separate values for "stocks" versus "options" (currently lumped sum values are displayed; may be useful, but is too inclusive).  Options are usually for periods longer than daily, equity trading can be also, but day trading is not.  Perhaps there should be a way to identify between day trading, swing trading and investment trading (i.e., holding overnight and/or multiple days).

Idea:  Automatic portfolio tracking if held after day end and until sold.

Topic: Number Shares Traded
Posted: Wednesday, October 24, 2018 3:10:37 PM

Running sums:  # shares, P&L, and commissions.  Other info --- ???????  Maybe TC commisssion, and other commissions for comparison (non-TC trading) to show savings using TC trading.

Thanks.  Cannot be too soon; today or tomorrow would make me happy!!!!!!  Hoping next release is ASAP.  Beta, great !!!

Topic: Trade Commission
Posted: Wednesday, October 24, 2018 2:37:28 PM

Documention indicates commission is included in cost basis; so thought to be an error of omission.  Have found images of options where commission is displayed; further evidence of omission error with equities.

When fixed, would like a pershare option value in addition to pertrade value.  Pershare is more meaningful if day trading  Default commission should be TC2000 value.  But if simulating non-TC trading,user would likely wish to specify another commission value other than TC value.

Topic: Trades Tab
Posted: Wednesday, October 24, 2018 1:43:03 PM

Tab allows "All Stocks" and "Active Symbol"; please add "Open Trades" also, thereby eliminating "closed" symbols.  Perhaps there should be a "Closed Trades" category as well.

Looks like open trades outstanding from past time periods can fall through the cracks currently.


Topic: Trade Commission
Posted: Wednesday, October 24, 2018 1:51:13 AM

Where/how to set the commission value.  Can find the bucket, but no way to set the value.  Appears to be an error of omission.  Please clarify.

Wishing to include in simulator; not doing live trading at this time.  May never do live trading if cannot demonstrate profitablity; i.e., worthless to try.
