Ok i fixed it. Click on setup in the top right, then select application settings, towards the bottom right of this window......change the Quote speed to realtime.

Anyone using the ToS for paper trading? Nothing matches up. It must all be delayed. i can understand it being delayed but the active trader screen and chart prices/movement dont match. So when i would make a trade off of the chart.......the prices on the active trader screen are way off, so i dont get a realistic entry.
Also in TOS if it touches the price it fills....not in real life. so remember that it gives a false sense of trading....but still ok. I have heard of those complaints on charts/time etc. go to "help" then click on "system" tab and dump garbage....might help. then open/close platform...
Yeah, there's two ways to do it. Login to live and trade onDemand which lets paper trade back in time
or you login to the paper trade side and it's delayed 15min (I believe). The Price ladder should match
up to the chart when using this method of paper.
To use OnDemand you have to have an account with TD. With an account everything is realtime so the paper trading works fine. Without an account I think the charts are realtime but the bid and ask when placing orders has a 15 min delay. I don't think there are any day trading restrictions for futures, you can trade all you like.
Just tried OnDemand and everything seems to be working fine, no mismatch. When you use OnDemand do you enter the month code? Instead of using /ES one has to enter the whole thing when selecting a date out of the current contract, for example /ESH2 or /ESZ1
We finally hit those fresh highs in the NQ i was looking for. I think a long term bull rally continues. I am looking for all time highs in the s&p it wont come instantly. This is a buy and hold market, the one method everyone fears is looking the best for the next year or two IMO. first long term target is 300 points on s&p for long term holds. i hope everyone is doing well!
cire i agree to some extent that it wont all come at once, and see perhaps 1370-90 ES but there is alot of external factors weighing things down. I believe there has to be a lower retest before marching any higher but will concede its a carry trade, which builds upon itself.
But in regards to the tech sector goog missing doesnt entstill the greatest of confidence in the NQ which i also play and other companies are missing, but some like salesforce are bucking the trend. Its a mixed market at best this earnings but am watching to see how much the margins are being squeezed and how we handle the speed bumps.
Other issues like debt refi are moving farther out to June and things are stabilizing.. however could easily pop and will this year before i think new highs are reached, or we will touch it and then break up perhaps. -- im referencing this year 2012. Farther out as in 2013 and so on doesnt bode well.
Caveat depending on what occurs with the elections and euro related items, could easily move to the up, but there are a huge amount of shorts currency and private related on all things euro. massive covering perhaps? hmmm
things are going well, hope they are for you also..
