consolidating mkt profile days

Brian,

I recently started using CTS for execution (and charts) and it has been a big improvement from Ninja/Pats. I am still using Ninja for charts but the speed of CTS for execution has been great.

Anyway, how do I consolidate days on the mkt profile charts? For instance, I would like to consolidate this weeks (Monday thru Thursday) profile.....

thanks

right click a profile and select 'merge w/ previous date'.

I think they're developing a better way to merge them in a future frontend release.

Does T4 support CBOE VIX options? Broker (RCG) says it is only with CQG.

We have a flatten button, but we do not have a flatten and reverse or a reverse button.

Thanks,

Yes as per Big Mikes reply im talking about the ability to automate certain stop loss and profit target strategies, for example you could automate something like the following once i've entered the market with 5 contracts:
- set initial stop loss for all 5 contracts at -5ticks
- set 2 different profit targets, one at +5 ticks for 3 contracts, one at +10 ticks for the final 2 contracts
- When price moves 3 ticks in my favor, automatically move the stop to breakeven
- When price moves 7 ticks in my favor move the stop for the remaining position to breakeven+3

Something along those lines...

Thanks.

Hi Brian, I'm trying to follow up on this old post from nearly 2 years ago. Any progress you could share regarding order management?

shzhning, we are beta testing what I will call bracket orders. The ability to enter into a trade and have a variety of stop and profit levels. You will be able to create numerous scenarios and save for future use. We have trailing stops now on T4 but I need to check how that will work for these bracket orders. Our goal is to have this released in early February.

Thanks Brian

HI Brian
Is there an option to not have order confirmation before submitting so that the order ticket doesn't show up
