    in TS when using 2 time frame charts and click ENABLE INTRABAR ORDER GENERATION will result GENERATE ORDERS INTRABAR HAS BEEN DISABLED BECAUSE IT IS NOT SUPPORTED FOR MULTI DATA CHARTS
    tech support has no idea to work around this but of course they are not trained for easy language anyway

    • Eve

      TS only generated signal after macd from HTF bar close (which is not how my strategy works n so does most other strategies)

        It is very important that you understand it is quite impossible to back test any strategy that uses the current higher time frame bar. Full explanation in the following video: https://www.hahn-tech.com/thinkorswim-strategy-guide-mtf/
        In this case, TradeStation handles this issue correctly, whereas Thinkorswim allows you to construct things that are impossible to achieve in live trading. (no safeguards)

    Hi Pete, i discovered that TS couldnt generate intrabar while using macd from higher time frame. do you have solution to work around this or other platform suggestion with auto trade + intrabar Multi time frame, Sierra, TradingView?
    TOS could do intrabar MTF but no auto trade 🙁
    your input is highly appreciated.

  • Tom

    Hi Pete, very informative video, thanks for that. Is it possible to use Tradestation for autotrade using a recursive strategy (e.g. CompoundValue used in TOS) using a 60 min intraday chart?

  • Evelina

    Hi Pete, do you know if sierra Chart could automatically pick ATM OPTIONS for auto trade? If not, do you know any platforms Software that could?
    Thanks so much for all your super useful information

  • Evelina

    Hi Pete, could we automate trade single options in TS, base on strategy with indicators of stock price, which include automate picking ATM strike and a minimal xx expiration days (perhaps needs predefined stock name)?
    if yes, does the auto trade in TS recursive for options day trading or need to enter one by one like in TOS conditional order?
    thanks so much

      At this time I am not aware if TradeStation EasyLanguage is able to access options data for the stock symbol applied to the chart. I am certain it is not able to execute orders for any options contracts associated with the stock symbol applied to the chart.
