Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

TOS countdown timer

Looking for a on screen count down timer for 3 minute (or other) candlestick chart. Timer should count down from 3 minutes (or other) in seconds. Should start over from 3 minutes for the next candle.

It's not possible to code such indicator by thinkscript. The mimimum time period available is 60 seconds
Use standalone software (i'm using freeware Traders CountDown Clock)

to grushforth:
If u really need it for making money, try to use SierraChart instead of TOS. There is such indicator/time counter.
Or lets keep your PCs clock synchronized and open clocks on another LCD :-) Or lets just watch TOS clocks - u will have to count what minute is th 3rd one :-)

Good night!
