This tutorial will focus on linking eSignal to Trade-Ideas Pro, but is general in nature. These techniques are useful in linking many other tools and products to Trade-Ideas. External linking is available in both Trade-Ideas Pro the application, and Trade-Ideas Web, our web-based solution. The integration is straightforward. Once you do a simple setup, you can click on a symbol in Trade-Ideas and it will appear on one or more windows in eSignal. As data appears in your alert window, you can instantly take a closer look at its activity by analyzing Level II data, advanced charting or relevant news events. By-the-way, this works in both real-time mode as well as historical mode. To link Trade-Ideas to eSignal, there is a one-time setup required each time either application is loaded. Open eSignal and the window or windows you would like to have linked. I have chosen free floating mode for this demonstration. It will also be necessary to open a detail window. We will link Trade-Ideas to eSignal’s detail window using the Generic Connector. This can be accomplished from the application toolbar or from an alert window if you have not previously assigned a link destination. After successfully linking to your detail window, you will notice a new line-item in the bottom panel of the Set Up External Linking window. You can now close this window. Now, use eSignal’s internal color-coded linking method to link to your other desired eSignal windows. This works for both windowed and free-floating windows, however, your detailed window cannot be minimized, although it can be sized very small. Another great use for the linking tool is to incorporate the eSignal news window. When an alert is displayed and subsequently clicked on, we now can see relevant news information. In summary, we have linked Trade-Ideas to eSignal’s detail window, advanced charting and news window. These same techniques can be applied to numerous other trading windows within eSignal in addition to numerous other financial products on the market.
