    Can anyone tell me how to, or if, advances/declines, new highs/lows, Ticki, Trin, Vix can be entered into Quotetracker, using IB data. Updating my setup, and I can't figure out what I'm doing.


  2. Gordo,

    1) we added IB as an index source in QT, so you can go to OPTIONS./WebUpdate, let QT update all files, then go to OPTIONS/Data sources menu and click on Indices tab and just select most of the above stuff from the built in list.

    for Advance/Decline, you would enter something like this:


    That is supposed to work, but doesn't on my account (doesn't in TWS either). If that symbol works on your account, then it should work as above in QT. NOTE: because of the way IB returns data for A/D, you will want to get the beta version of QT to chart the ratio:

    As for new highs/lows - don't have top 10 stuff in QT right now.
