    Different strategy on different tabs

    Hi,

    I have several tabs with different instruments (futures, stocks) and is there anyway when I select a ATM strategy for a certain tab, it sticks? Right now when I switch tabs the strategy stays the same and I have to use the pull-down menu to switch (i.e. a futures strategy is much different than my stock strategy).

    Thanks!

    Hello Stok,

    Thanks for the post.

    If using chart trader in different tabs of the same chart window, it would be expected that changing the ATM strategy in one would change it for the others as well. If using a different chart window, you are able to change ATM strategies independent of the other chart windows.

    Also, if you are using a superdom, ATM strategies will be specific to their own tab. Therefore changing the ATM strategy in one tab will not change it in the others.

    If you'd like, I can submit a feature request on your behalf to have ATM strategies be independent on chart trader as well within the same window.

      Thanks Ryan. Yes, I am using chart trader with one window and multiple tabs. I think that would be a great request, since I assume others may have different instruments on different tabs and want independent strategies setup per tab.

      Thanks!

          Add my vote for a Chart Trader /ATM Strategy settings option to enable assignment of different Chart Trader /ATM Strategy configurations to each different instrument tab in a chart window, and have that Chart Trader /ATM Strategy apply to the same instrument tabs in any other chart windows that are associated by Instrument Link.

          Consider this example workspace consisting of four chart windows, with six tabs in each. The chart windows and tabs are organized so each chart window is for a different periodicity (e.g. 1 min, 5 min, 15 min, 60 min), and each tab is for a different instrument (e.g. ES, NQ, YM, RTY, CL, GC). So, in each of the four chart windows, those six instrument tabs are in that order, and each instrument's four tabs of different time periods are linked by Instrument Link color. With this arrangement, all four periods of any one of six instruments can be visible at the same time. So that's all good, but different instruments require different Chart Trader /ATM Strategy configurations, and as NT8 functions now, unless I'm missing something, Chart Trader /ATM Strategies apply to a chart window and all its tabs regardless of instrument differences, not to each different instrument tab separately. This is a significant problem, and makes an efficient workspace as I've described impractical to use with Chart Trader /ATM Strategies.

          Ideally, the Chart Trader would have a selector to either Apply to Chart (applicable to all contained tabs - the existing functionality) or Apply to Instrument (separately applicable to each different instrument tab within the chart, and to all Instrument Linked tabs in other charts).

          The original post in this thread is dated April 2018. Has there been any progress on this improvement request?
