Welcome to Trade-Ideas. There are two available versions of our flagship alerting tool; browser-based or as a downloadable application. Lets take a quick look at both. The web-based alerting tool, Trade-Ideas for the web is very portable and operates inside of most browsers. The characters contains in the address field contain all the components or a particular strategy. The application, Trade-Ideas Pro has some additional functionality such as the ability to save layouts and access our backtesting tool called the OddsMaker in addition automated trading functionality offer through our Automated Trading Robot. Some customers want to take a closer look at our software before they decide to sign up. We provide a DEMO mode for these customers. It’s easy to access the DEMO mode. Just log in as DEMO if you are using Trade-Ideas Pro, the application. Make sure you type it in all upper case. The password doesn’t matter. Notice that the software says connected as DEMO. If you don’t see this, you made a mistake. To use demo mode in Trade-Ideas web, you don’t have to log in at all. You are automatically using the product in DEMO mode, until you log in with a real username and password. While in demo mode, you will be able to use any preconfigured strategies or create your own from scratch, however, data is 20 minutes delayed. In addition, History mode and symbol list functionality has been disabled along with the columns that display charts. Lets start from the Trade-Ideas home page and focus on Trade-Ideas web. Click on Browser Quick Start. Here, you have many options. This shows numerous preconfigured setups. We recommend the High-Low ticker for people using DEMO mode. This shows you the most data. Find one you like and click start. If you have not yet created an account and you just want to see what the product looks like, this is a good place to start. At this point theres two very popular questions we get. Sometimes the data is moving too fast for people and sometimes the data is moving too slow for people. That depends on your trading style and that depends on which set-up you have chosen. These are covered in detail on the FAQ. The simple answer is to reconfigure the window the way youd like to see it. You have many choices here. Most of these you can set to see more or fewer alerts. The next question is how do I use these in my trading. We show a limited amount of information here. In this case, new high, when the next new high is, when the next new low. We also have a stock symbol which is a hyperlink. Click on that hyperlink to link to your trading application or another webpage. The first time you click on the hyperlink, you will see the select link destination page. This page describes how you trade. Do you use Realtick, eSignal, there are a large number of options. Many of these have additional help. For the sake of this demo, I am going to go to a website: Big Charts. You can reconfigure this at any time by going to advanced features. Thats covered in different lesson. Now when I click on a symbol, Im taken directly to Big Charts. I can now see the data for that symbol. Let me try a different symbol. Sure enough, there is the data. This demo is in a very small window. You would normally be able to see the chart immediately and if you were attached to a trading product you could hit the buy or sell button. Sometimes you will see additional information in a stock window. For example, this window shows what happens if you were not logged in. If you move to another computer, you need to log in again. Or, if you dont have an account, you can use the DEMO mode which I showed in the previous example. If you need to create an account, if you need to log in, if you need to pay for your account, all of those instructions pop up automatically on an as-needed basis. All you have to remember is the Browser Quick Start page. These options are also available in other places, but the start page will directly you to them as needed. Another useful link is the history link. Remember, you must have an active account and be logged in. What if I want to see what data this window particularly shows? I just click on history and here I see recent alerts. As you can see, this window produces one every few minutes. You can also use this after hours and weekends to help you with your analysis. Finally, you notice that most of these links has help. This describes the initial setup. The history and configure links are available in two places. You can click on these here to see this strategy exactly as we produced it. However, you can also go to your own window and reconfigure it any number of times. History and configure will then apply to your changes, not to the original. This window provides a lot of good places to get started, but ultimately you will want to customize these to your own needs. Once you do that, you can save this link. The easiest way is by hitting that save button. Now it shows up under favorites. However, you will notice that this is just a URL. You can save this in any of the normal ways. You can e-mail it to yourself, you can e-mail it to a friend, you can cut and paste it into your notes, you can drag it to the desktop. That way, tomorrow morning you can startup from your own settings or from one of ours.
