STRONGLY agree....

Me too, that's why #2 advice in the very first post was:

Get to know the platform."

Here is a trick for fast moving markets, like gold has been in the last few days.

Problem: The T4 DOM simply can't keep up with a fast moving price and the price can not be seen in the window, thus hard if not impossible to trade...

Solution: Click on a different month, then click back at the original month. That quickly brings the price back to the middle of the window.

The slow scrolling in T4 can be annoying. Another solution: try sierra chart, which today handled a 30 handle down move in ES without a hiccup, with many more messages and volume in the feed than gold. Scroll at will, works great with tst.

why not just use auto recenter?

Any time price trades to the top or bottom of range it recenters automatically, or you can click on the price column and it will do a global recenter for all doms.

Where do I set up the auto recenter?

By the way, how is your live trading going?

Hey, use whatever works. I pay $45 a month and it's a small price for what you get.. it's the best, hands down, and cheaper than much more popular, much less useful programs that people happily pay more for. And while T4 is okay, it crushes it completely.

I think what you want is under Properties->Display->Auto Track

There are 4 settings for scrolling. But I had problem with trade movving so fast in profit to be impossible to move to BE fast without editing the ticket. Good problem I guess but nevertheless.

It looks to me based on others' results and on my personal experience, that the more instruments you trade, the less parameters you have to pass. The average winner vs. average loser disappear from the list once you trade 3 instruments, and I saw a guy who was funded with 4 instruments traded and his target was less than the usually needed (2.5K instead of 3.5K in the 50K Combine)

I never seen these facts to be advertised and no, these are not custom Combines, but it is nice to be aware of. The obvious strategy is, that if you have too many parameters red, but you are nicely profitable, you just trade 1-2 more instruments for even just 1 day, and it will shorten the list.

It would be nice if someone could confirm this finding from TST.... Also could be a glitch...

Very interesting, thanks Pedro. I might try it with something. I wouldn't mind getting less than 16k profit target.

Another thing how to deal with moving to BE fast in T4: right click on your order on DOM (or if it moved away fast on racing market keep order book open, click and select revise, then you can keep it always on screen, set stop from -xxx to 0 and once ready to move to BE click revise. I guess once position is in profit it will let you move stop into +xxx to protect something, so you don't need to go crazy over the DOM to manage it.
