Setting Custom Time Periods

For 233 chart, use Style > Intraday > 180 Days > Custom...
For 55, 34, 21, 13, and 8 charts, use Style > Intraday > 20 Days > Custom...



When entering times in the custom field, you may use the slider; but it's much easier to just type the desired time in the Time Aggregation Period block.

Tip: type 0353 (3 hours 53 minutes) for a 233 chart.

Is he still using QCharts - or has he migrated to another platform?
Is he changing over to TorS?

GW still using Qcharts but will be migrating to Alchemcharts when available. You can search Alchemcharts in this forum for details or Google their website. This thread intended to help those that use TOS and do not want to pay for QC.

Hello,

Anyone know of a way to go back and recreate trading days on tos? Like a simulation of a past day, such as April 14, 2016?

I'm a gw wsb 1-5 student and am taking the Survivor Weekend 1 in June.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks.

Hi rsxcited,

Welcome to the forums.

TOS can be setup to be exactly like Qcharts. The only indicator (or tool) that doesn't seem to be working exactly as it does in Qcharts is the "Autowave", but that isn't really a big deal at all. It's a sorta "nice to know" thing.

To answer your question, YES! TOS has an "OnDemand" feature that allows you to play back charts. It's sorta like going back in time and watching a trade as it unfolds. The same way you would have seen it, if you were looking at it at the time it happened.

It really is a cool feature, and one that new students should use ALOT!!!....

Download it and play around with it. It's free, so what can it hurt. smiling smiley

Trying to move to TOS from Alchem/Qcharts and im having some trouble with the StochRSI. Any advice on what setting I have wrong? I tried following Roberts list above but apparently something is off.


Any help would be appreciated

Redwolf,

It looks like you have accidentally moved the StochRSI indicator to the Volume section when you were dragging to reposition things.

First, turn off volume. Press [ CTRL ]+[ S ] to access the chart settings panel. Then, click on the "Equities" tab and uncheck "Show volume subgraph."

Once you've done that, you will probably find StochRSI overlayed onto MACD, so it will need to be repositioned again. At that point, it may be easier to just remove that indicator then add it back in.

Robert or anyone willing to help....

First, thank you very much for the informative post above.
I just started with TOS this week and find it to be a very capable system.
I used qcharts for several years back in 01-05, don't miss paying $200 each month thumbs up
I used your settings above (thanks) but there are a LOT of settings on each study that I am not sure how to setup.
Is there anyway you could please give me a little more guidance on each study setting?
I would really appreciate it.

Thanks
Scottie

It's funny you posted here concerning TOS and chart settings.

I was looking at something today and noticed something messed up.

RSI

Look at symbol UDOW on Qcharts, then look at it in TOS.

Look from March 29, 2017 through June 25 2017. When you compare it to the StochRSI in TOS they don't match up. VERY VERY strange.

Can anyone explain why, or better yet tell me how to correct it so TOS mirrors Qcharts???
Re: Think Or Swim GW Chart Settings

this might be a dumb question but i am new to tos and in your pic i only see the # signs ? Do you have the setting for everything especially the christmas cross, rsi, and macd ? Thank you .
Re: Think Or Swim GW Chart Settings

That is by design.

Gary Williams students know the settings and they've been sworn to secrecy under an Non-Disclosure agreement. Although many on here may be long past any NDA they still feel somewhat committed to not sharing that info if you're not a GW student.

will he be doing more classes in the near future ? im hearing he stopped ??
Re: Think Or Swim GW Chart Settings
February 12, 2018 04:14PM
i have the chart parameters from class 2 do they hold true to the think or swim platform??
Re: Think Or Swim GW Chart Settings
February 13, 2018 02:14PM
No he is still going. Not sure what you mean by "do they hold true"?
Re: Think Or Swim GW Chart Settings
February 13, 2018 07:56PM
the same settings i received in class 2 are the same settings in think or swim ? Or do they have to be modified?
Re: Think Or Swim GW Chart Settings
February 14, 2018 09:17PM
Oh I see.

No they are the same settings. For the offset though you will need to us a negative number though, because a positive number will move it backwards instead of forward. That's pertaining to the CC lines though.

It would appear that I like to say "though" a lot for some reason. lol..... smiling smiley
