Most Trade Idea Windows, including Alert, Top List, Multi-Strategy, and Compare Count Windows as well as the Holly AI Windows, RBI, GBI, and Price Alerts can be symbol-linked to a Chart or Single Stock Window.
This means that when changing your windows stock symbol, your symbol-linked Chart or Single Stock Window will automatically change as well, and display the specific stock’s data.
By default, all symbol-linked free-floating Windows belong to the blue, Link to All, Color Group.
By default, all docked Windows are assigned to the pink, Dock Window, Linking Group. In "Pink Mode" only the menu items contained in the indiviual dock respond to symbol changes.
The assigned color group will always be displayed in the top left-hand corner of each window.
You can create up to 4 additional Linking Groups and by doing so, link selected windows to a specific Chart or Single Stock Window, which is very useful when monitoring various scans.
There are two ways to create a Linking Group:
- Option 1
You can assign windows to a specific color group individually.
To do so, right-click into your window, select Symbol Linking, and choose a color from the dropdown. The selected window will now display the Color Group in the top left-hand corner.
To enable Symbol Linking for a Single Stock Window, right-click into it, and select Symbol Linking.
Then, add a Checkmark to the left-hand side of the Symbol Linking option.
To enable Symbol Linking for a Chart, right-click into it, select Properties, and then Symbol Linking. Now, add a Checkmark to the left-hand side of the Symbol Linking option.
- Option 2
To establish a Linking Group for a number of windows at once, go to the Toolbar, open the Tools Tab, and select, Symbol Linking Groups.
The next window will display all the Trade Ideas windows currently in use.
By default, each free-floating window is assigned to the blue, Link to All, Linking Group.
By default, each docked window is assigned to the pink, Dock Window, Linking Group. In "Pink Mode" only the menu items contained in the indiviual dock respond to symbol changes.
To establish a new Linking Group, select the windows that will be part of the new Linking Group by adding a checkmark.
You can select all windows at once by choosing, Select All, at the bottom.
You can clear your selection by selecting, Clear Selected, at the bottom.
Once you have selected the windows, open the Link Groups dropdown in the top left-hand corner. Select a color for your new Linking Group, then choose, Set All Selected, to assign the windows.
All the selected windows will now display the color of the Linking Group you have assigned them to.
To see all windows that are assigned to a specific Linking Group, choose the Group Color from the Link Groups dropdown, then select, Filter By. To see all available windows, select, Clear Filter.
Once you have assigned the windows, select Close.
All the windows that you assigned to a Linking Group will now display the Group Color in the top left-hand corner.
Any Single Stock Window or Chart that has been assigned to the same Color Group will update accordingly, whenever you change a stock symbol in one of the other Linking Group windows.
Please note, that even when a Single Stock Window and Chart have been assigned to a specific color group, they will always also be linked to the Blue Color Group since this is the default Link to All Group. This means in turn that any window that is assigned to the blue linking group will be linked to all open Single Stock Windows and Charts.
