add Trade Symbol to Symbol Settings

Hello SC,

please add the functionality which is already there in "Chart Settings" into the "Symbol Settings" to make it symbol dependent.

as it is right now a chart can have a trade symbol set but when you switch the chart symbol via a watchlist the setting is useless / gone. Having it in the Symbol Settings would remedy this issue.

thanks,
Andreas

This is already supported in the Global Symbol Settings. The particular setting is "Trade and Current Quote Symbol".

if i set this for a stock symbol and then move to a diff symbol via a watchlist which does not have such a symbol set it does not reset the chart to an "empty" trade symbol.

so i add up with the new symbol for charting but the "old" symbol for trading..

i'd consider that as a bug. please reset the trade symbol after a symbol change via watchlist.


thank you

Experienced this, placed live order on ES intending to trade MES contracts, getting filled on M2K instead. Extremely confusing, realized what happened afterwards having read your problem report, was previous trade symbol on that chart, switched through watchlist.

It used to work like you are describing but then it creates a problem where the Trade and Current Quote Symbol under certain conditions gets cleared unexpectedly. So we solved that problem.

You are responsible for knowing how you have set that setting. And to clear it as needed. After all it is displayed at the top left of a chart, by default in the symbol display. Be sure to add that field:

As it is right now it’s useless and makes no sense.. why on Earth would one leave a trade symbol while changing the chart symbol!?
