I'm having trouble even figuring out if you can filter your Trades from Live vs SIM haha. Really wish the community was a bit more active, fantastic platform

Motivewave user here. Currently using oanda to trade forex and TOS for equities. I was thinking of switching to IQfeed for data and executing on TOS through motivewave. I have seen the platform grow and like what they have been doing.

Motivewave pro edition user with tradestation and interactive brokers. Tradestation data works great in motivewave. But IB historical data is a joke for us equities. The funny thing is Italian equities are spot on in motivewave through IB

MW pro ultimate etc... owner here I use it as my secondary. Reason I'm more comfortable on Nt8.

I like it a lot, just don't use it to it's full potential. Yet.


I'd like a push for a MW section in Bigmikes.

I have the Ultimate MW as well .... Love Love Love it! Only hard part for me is the lack of custom indies and I have no idea how to code. Speaking of that .... are any of you MW er's coding with the SDK Programming Kit? If so .. do you need some practice? I have an easy (well should be easy if you know how to do it) study that I would like to have or use

Don't know why, although MotiveWave is the best charting tool I have found to date, futures.io does have 'as of yet' a sub-forum for MotiveWave users.

I just purchased a lifetime license of Pro version after extensive deep-dives in to Sierra Chart, Ninjatrader and TOS.

I am looking to exchange MotiveWave tips-and-techniques. My current focus is using MW in the context of Day-Trading equities. I am currently connecting to IQFeed and TD Ameritrade.

Sorry for the spam quoting everyone but figured was easier than trying to pm each one individually. Unfortunately looks like the MW community just isn't as active (judging by their community forum) and the fact there's not too many threads in here on this platform, so trying to dig up some old threads. I've spent days tweaking and configuring my MW platform but still have tons of questions.

You all seem to have tons of experience so was hoping you might be able to share any cool tips MW offers that isn't as obvious to the new comers? Love to see how you guys have set up the charts/platform as well just to see what else is capable with the platform.

My favorite trick right now has to be zooming the charts with the scroll wheel once you configure it to "Bar Width". It makes zooming such a breeze (best zoom in any platform I have ever used). I also love the "Autoscale" feature which allows me to quickly go between free dragging the chart to having it auto scale for me so I don't ever need to worry about adjusting the price axis.

I do have 2 simple questions if anyone could help with:
1. Is there a way show on the chart where my entry price is, WHILE the trade is still active? Kind of like how NT leaves a line on your entry price so you it's immediately obvious
2. On the Accounts tab, is there a way to filter accounts from SIM vs Live? It gets so confusing at times seeing which trades are which (also wish they showed MFE and MAE like Jigsaw does). If someone could share how they track their active orders on the Accounts tab, would be amazing. Thanks in advance

So the easiest way for #1 question is to use the default "Show Orders/Show Trades" buttons in the toolbar and toggle those on/off. You can also create keyboard shortcuts as well. I love how MW has the ability to create so many shortcuts .. it's awesome.

For #2 you can add Tabs for Positions, Active Orders, Filled Orders, Trades and a Journal that tracks every move you make. You can sort the account by clicking on the Column Header .. that might help you keep your accounts straight?

MW is working on a Trade Report where you can pull the MAE/MFE type of info ... they recently posted an update on the MW forum back in April .. you can see that here https://support.motivewave.com/forum/index.php?threads/trade-history-report-summary.206/#post-1193

MW is awesome! There are so many cool features and it seems to keep getting better.

Appreciate the reply! Yup I'm familiar with what you mentioned, but definitely is a lot to be desired haha. One quick question - have you ever experienced a slow data feed in MW? And if so, any solution? I'm using CQG.
