External linking is the proprietary mechanism that Trade-Ideas uses to link its software to numerous third party trading and analytics applications. When users click on a symbol in a Trade-Ideas alert, top list or multi-strategy window, the symbol is sent to the chart window, level II window, quote grid or order entry panel for further review leaving the trader just one click away from analysis to trade.
These linkable third party applications include but are not limited to eSignal, Realtick, Lightspeed, Sterling, Think or Swim, NinjaTrader, Redi+, TradeStation and many other applications. The external linking default can be set to either single or double click. Click here for more info on which platforms we link to.
