On the Streamer platform, and as an Apex member, I was able to stream live news fromt he news wires as it hit for all of the stocks in my portfolios. I don't see that being available under TA, one of the many useful features in Streamer that is no longer there. Am I missing something re the news streamer? I hope I am, and that it will work with TA. Thanks.
Go to the Watch list settings and mark "News" tab.All columns are customized,so you can choose which ones you want to see.Basically I was able to restore my Watch list from Streamer,although colors are different.I put Indices quotes on the top,but they should put them separately on the top as on Streamer since they are essential for any watch list.
For Level 2 and Time&Sales I'm using Strategy desk with 4 windows each.
Hope it helps a little:)
Also, the Alerts and Last Sale data was MUCH better on the Streamer platform. Same with the Level II quotes and info. I hope Ameritrade will make many much-needed improvements to their TA platform, or I bet they will lose thousands of clients. And I will be one of them. I am at a loss at how they could leave out so many of the features that were available before and expect people to be happy about it. Hopefully they will come through for us....
