Since I can't edit my 9/8/18 rant, let my humbly retract it here. I was in the throes of a shit fit after the OnDemand experience. After calming down, I realized the gravity of my request in terms of man-hours. Especially if features like saved drawing sets were to be retained on the local machine. Saved drawing sets is one of the best features in the software's history.

With that said, some reasonable requests:

Account selection should include a paper account option. (no restart required).

Fix volume profile. Fix it at least to the level of NT8, whereby we can have a 1m resolution result display on any chart (other than a 1m chart). Maybe it can be accomplished by using the same routines that are used to display a daily period MA on an intraday chart? The ability to specify a period begin/end for a profile would make it twice as useful.

Increase the curve qty limit on the fibonacci retracement tool setup. To avoid a scrolling window, the curve list could be moved to one side of the setup window, and the other settings moved to the other side. maybe bump it up to 25?

After years of use I have found very little wrong with TOS. For me the biggest issue currently is the active trader window frequently showing blank bid sizes during times when trades happen between the bid spread. Maybe expanding the thinkscript code interaction with the platform would also be nice.

PriceChannel cross alert sytem in TOS

I am looking for an alert when price crosses a study, specifically the PriceChannel study in TOS for a basket of futures on the daily chart. I use both a 20 day upper/lower and a 40 day upper/lower pricechannel. How do I create an alert system in TOS for a 20/40 day low or high cross of the PriceChannel indicator?
Many thanks for your help!!

I found this indicator source on Trading view and was looking for some help into converting this to TOS, any help would be greatly appreciated

Only outstanding request I have is the ability to invert tick-based charts.

Can currently invert time-based charts by adding the (-) symbol in front, but doesn't work for tick charts

1. Ability to create custom hotkeys for selling. Ability to sell a percentage of my current share size with a hot ket.
2. A position option. The ability to sell 0 - 100% of my position. I don't want to manually calculate the share sizes position. If I dispose of 25% of my position it should know I have 75% remaining with a position drop down option.
3. The ability to specify exactly how much money I would like to spend on a trade. I Would like to enter for example $5,000 in order to buy X amount of shares. I don't care how many shares that equates to, its the dollar amount that I am concerned about.
