Hello,

Does anyone know which charting software can do the following:

With two chart windows open of say ES, with one set to 5 minute and one set to 1 minute. When I scroll back in time one one chart I want the other chart to automatically scroll back to the appropriate time.

Thanks

Hi Jeadie,

I think you may be asking a bit much, the idea of separate windows is that they remain separate!

Best of luck with your search.

Time Linked Charts

There are many programs that are like this, how ever I think that you should try http://www.neoticker.com and their demo yon can open two windows, they also link into data feeds from people like IB etc.

Another program is http://www.ensignsoftware.com. The feature you are looking for is called global crosshairs.

I hope that the helps.

Cheers Artful

Just to make sure we're talking about the same thing ...

In Qcharts, when you have two windows open and you move your cursor across the 1 minute chart will produce a vertical line which moves along the 5 minute chart in proportion to the move on the 1 minute chart.

Actually you can have 5 windows open and they will all do the same - it's one of those neat things which the program does, and you just get used to using it all the time.

It also works across different tickers - so for example if I move my cursor across a 5 minute ES chart, the line will also move across a 10 minute Dow chart, or whatever charts I want to.

Thanks for the help.

I previously had a look at the demo for both Qcharts and Ensign and I did not spot this feature !

I have had Sierra for the last year or so and am very pleased with it, save the lack of this particular feature.

Anyhow I will be going back to have a look at the demos of Qcharts and ensign.

Thanks

You can do what Skim has described in both eSignal and TradeStation. I don't believe you can scroll two windows at once though.

Skim,

To clarify I don't just want the cursor to move, but the actual chart as well.........so if I move back to 15:00 last monday on the 5 minute, the 1 minute chart will move to the approprate position as well.

Thanks

No, that's not possible - the cursor moves across both charts, but you use a different feature to move the actual charts themselves and this means you can't move both.

Looks like TBS was right! teehee :D

In Tradestation you can put 2 different time frame charts in 1 window as shown in the attachment and yes they do move together when you scroll back or forwards.

Here's an example of TS2000i showing multiple time-frames for ES (1 min, 15 min and daily). The upper display shows the charts in three separate sub-charts, while the lower chart has them all overlaid on the same chart.

Can be very useful, although any studies, like MAs etc, will only work from the datastream that you first add to the chart, in the above example, the 1 minute ES datastream, which is a pain

Thanks for the tradestation info;

Paul you say that studies cannot be used on both charts, so I could not have an oscillator associated with each chart also scrolling back automatically ?

Thanks

Actually, in TradeStation (in 7.x, not sure about 2000i) you can also 'link' two charts and then when you click on a specific bar on one of the charts the other chart will also go to that time period. Not quite scrolling but it may do what you want.
