Computer Clock

Curious to know what you guys use for a clock on your computer. Do you use any special clock or alarm applications?

I've been using Qlock. Does anyone have others?

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Depends what you want:


- decoration of your desktop to fill the last available space


- time conversion between different exchanges, because you are always confused by different daylight savings zones


- setting alarms for all news events


- watch synchronization between system clock and internet time, because you have a cheap data feed that comes without timestamps

Have a look at the news indicators of @roonius and @j0hnth0m. I think one of them has an alarm feature integrated.

Market open and close could be easily coded, if you use an appropriate session template. It takes less than five minutes to code an indicator, which catches the session breaks and alerts you some minutes earlier, so you won't miss them.

Ok, so this is what I settled on:

Good Timing
GrayJet - Good Timing
for scheduling audio files to be played at specific times.

I used the AT&T natural voices website to create the audio files that I want.
AT&T Labs Natural Voices Text-to-Speech Demo

and a time sync program called Dimension 4 to ensure time is correct. You can set it to sync as often as you want and choose the time server.
Thinking Man Software - Dimension 4 v5.0

This seems to be working well and does exactly what I want.

Hope this helps someone looking for the same thing.

Good Trading and follow your plan!
