I have noticed that if I set an Alert to Share a message to Twitter with Screenshot type: Tab, having a chart window with many tabs, moving to a different tab, leaving my office and an hour later the Alert is hit ....the chart pic is from the tab I was last viewing and not from the chart Tab containing the Alert.

This must be an error correct? The point is to have a chart picture from where the Alert was generated ...not some other chart.

Say I have a chart window with 5 Tabs and one Alert per chart..... I have to end on one Tab I can't be viewing all of them. So for each Alert the same chart pic would be sent?????

Thank you.

Ron

Ron. I am not sure how this was spec'd but I will forward this to our product development for further review.

Here is an example of what I'm talking about.

This Alert was for USDJPY but I left the chart window on the spot gold chart XAUUSD. So I received info on USDJPY but a pic from XAUUSD in my tweet.

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

@NinjaTrader

If you are so inclined, have your debuggers try this.

- open a new chart of say ES, open Chart Trader on the chart
- add a new tab chart of say NQ, open Chart Trader on the new tab chart
- change the account on the NQ chart

Note that the account on the ES chart is now changed. Maybe it was designed that way but it seems off to me. The issue runs deeper than just the account, it show up in other places in indicator scripts.

Same is true of the ATM. Not good. Different size stop and targets for different instruments.

Seems as thought chart Trader is being reused for whatever Tab happens to be in that window.

Each Tab needs its own Chart Trader......

Thanks Ron and Seahn,

We are aware of this inconsistency. Its on our list of issues unfortunately not a trivial one for a quick fix but nevertheless, on the radar.

An idea? @NinjaTrader

Create an option, a check box, (and of course all the super hard coding behind it...lol) to create a new Chart Trader for Tabs or reuse Chart Trader.

I feel this might save RAM etc if you don't actually need a new Chart Trader for each chart. For example I have 4 charts for each Futures contract weekly daily 120 min and 250,000 vol for ES. NQ has the same but 50000 vol etc for YM ZN ZB ZF. FX I use three charts each.

NY8 Problem with Box chart style in release 8.0.6.0...

@NinjaTrader

Please any NT8 user on release 8.0.6.0 review this video and try to reproduce.

The chart set up is this:
  1. 2 of the same data series in panel 1
  2. 1st one 120min candles
  3. 2nd one daily in Box chart style with transparent fill color
  4. switch to different instruments and see if Box chart style lines up with 120min candles

Can you confirm that you are using IQFeed? We did find an issue with that and will be resolved in a minor update being published shortly, 8.0.6.1.
