    Setting the default trading account for a chart

    Hello,

    Is there a way to set a certain trading account as default for a chart? I have about 20 charts up on my workspace and they are all default to "Simulation" on the chart trader window and i have to manually change these each day to the trading account i use. If there is a way to have the charts open up with my trading account set as default instead of simulation that would save me some time.

    Thanks,

    Hello ninjab,

    Thank you for your post.

    Unfortunately, there is not currently a way to set your Live Account as the default over the Sim 101 account. This item is on our development team's list of future enhancements.

    Please let me know if you have additional questions.

      This would be nice. It is a REAL pain to change all the charts to the live account. Also would be nice if you could set the default to GTC instead of day. Any idea when this will happen?

      Thanks

        Hello,

        Unfortunately, I'm not able to provide an ETA for the addition of this type of feature at this time. We would update this thread should that change however.

            Just following up on this. Does this mean that default account for chart trader cannot be set to an account if the first connection is a market data only connection i.e. IQFEED?
            I spend ages each day changing the chart trader account from sim101 to my trading account. Is this on the development timeline?

              Hello,

              That is correct. The market data feed has a Sim101 account associated with it. Connecting to the data feed first will populate the order entry features with the only account that is listed.

              You would need to connect to your broker first, and then connect to the data provider to control which account is loaded.

              I've put in a request to get a tracking ID for this feature.
