How Trade-Ideas Displays Time: Time & Sales Comparisons

Occasionally a customer pushes the Trade-Ideas tools in a new way and/or reveals another small piece of functionality.

The other day we received an email about how we display time in Trade-Ideas PRO.

This is a feature that has existed for a while, but it’s hard to use. We plan to add this to the GUI (i.e., TI PRO), so it will be easier to use, but not for a while. It will take some effort and there is a lot of stuff before that on our list. In any case, it’s a useful feature. Several people have asked about it, and everyone seemed happy when we showed this to them (presumably when comparing our alerts to Time & Sales).

I just started using the downloaded version of Trade-Ideas Pro. In the Time column I only get the time by the minute. When I was using the web based I was getting the time column to the second. Please advice how I can get the downloaded version to show to the second?

Try this. Find the file c:Program FilesTrade-IdeasTrade-IdeasAlertsLocal.ini and open it with notepad.

Add the following line to the bottom of the file.

TimeFormatList=h:nn:ss m/d/yyyyh:nn:ss

Restart Trade-Ideas Pro. Let us know if you need anything else.
