I use it for charting and custom indicators like mynholygrail indicator.

You can find scripting help on www.thinkscripter.com

I am in no way affiliated with the site. I am merely a member.

Kind of a joke. I see holy grail thrown around a lot on the forums. I think I will name my indicator the Ark of the Covenent. :)

The holy grail of trading does not lie within an indicator but rather trading. Defining risk profiles, exit strategies, and reacting to the market.

I trade options, so as the saying goes, it is not what you trade but how you trade it is more true in options trading than equity trading.

Once you have the TOS script written and saved how do you apply it to MARKETWATCH?
I have been trying to apply this with no success.
I have written and applied scripts to single stocks under "CHARTS" but am have no idea how to do this under MARKETWATCH.
If someone could help I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you in advance
Cheers

Never mind - found it :-)
