Below is a link to a video highlighting some of the new functionality in versions 10.5 and 10.6, during a webinar with FT71.

Some topics covered include Day Types Chart, Exporting indicator data for homework, enhancements to the Profile and Zig Zag Indicators, new multi-session and layered periodicities, alert/alarm options, and more.

With all of these updates each month, to improve the efficiency and character of RT, i still do not understand why you haven't upgraded the ability to change the colours of the cross hairs? This is something that has been ask numerous times on different forums.

I agree it is an area that needs improvement and I intend to dig in and see what I can do on this front in the near future. Will keep you posted.

Here is a new video demonstrating the Calendar Indicator:

This video highlights the Calendar Indicator. The Calendar Indicator was designed to allow users to easily identify key events, dates, or date ranges within the bigger picture provided by a calendar. These key dates may include holidays, futures rollover, current day, the visibly charted period, and up to 6 custom periods specified by the user. These custom periods may include day of week, week of month, month of year, or any custom date. These Calendars can be toggled easily via the Button Indicator.

New Video:

Custom Quotepage Columns have long been a very impressive feature of Investor/RT, empowering users to create columns of customized data with colored cells and a wealth of other functionality. But for the first decade of their existence, and underlying calculation inefficiency has greatly limited this powerful functionalty to a small fraction of its true potential. The doors have now been blow wide open with the addition of a persistent data option. Data persistence now allows custom columns to calculate extremely efficiently with minimal load on the processor. This breakthrough opens the doors for frequent calculations of complex data on a large spreadsheet of symbols. The data can build efficiently upon any of the many complex indicators such as Session Statistics, Volume Breakdown, and the Profile Indicator.

New Video: Zig Zag Indicator:

This video provides an overview of the Zig Zag Indicator. Zig Zag is a very popular and powerful indicator designed to simplify, organize, and aggregate market moves. Zig Zag draws trendlines between key pivot/reversal highs and lows determined by a user specified minimum price move. Each trendline or leg can be labeled with a variety of statistics that involve the volume, delta, bars, price moves, time, or relative retracement of each move. These labels may be stacked vertically to simultaneously view multiple pieces of data on each leg. A variety of other presentation options are also detailed.

New Video: Profiling Market Moves: Dynamic Zig Zag Profiles


This video demonstrates how to form dynamic volume profiles of market moves identified by the Zig Zag Indicator. In this case, we take moves of $5 or greater on the ES and construct volume at price profiles. Zig Zag based Signals are used to dictate the start and end of each profile, but this dynamic profile concept can be expanded beyond the use of Zig Zags. Any condition that can be represented with a Signal can be used to identify the start and end of Profiles.

I think this has been available in some form since late 2010. A few things have been done since to make it more efficient, and a robust combination (with new additions to Zig Zag and Profile), but I did a video back in 2010 called Ten Point Profiles with a similar demonstration.

New Video:

This video is a follow up to the video "Profiling Market Moves: Dynamic Zig Zag Profiles" ( ). In this video, we go a step further and describe how to centrally and globally adjust the minimum price changed used by the multiple instances of Zig Zag within the chart. By specifying a minimum price change as a user variable (V#21), all instances of Zig Zag will share an underlying price change value, and a button indicator can be used to allow the user to quickly change the price change for all Zig Zag instances in the chart. The chart instantly responds by updating to the new minimum change.
