Is it possible to log-in to TOS from multiple (or at least two) systems? Several older posts on different sites said either TDA wouldn't allow it, or real time quotes were denied, or it caused problems. Any experiences with this? TIA
Supposedly, the rumor is that TOS does not take advantage of dual-core processors therefore multiple instances can possibly improve performance.
Chart alert message only show in the instance running that chart. Other instance won't display.Messages will trigger on ALL machines with a specific TDA account open
Yes. But sometimes after you update the code in one instance. Other instance need to relogin to see the changes.All custom code is stored on the servers, not just an individual PC
Running conditional orders work fine. However, saved conditional order just work on the instance you create it. Other instance use the saved conditional order will not be triggered.Conditional orders are stored on the TDA servers, not just your PC...
Installing Multiple Instances of ThinkOrSwim (Windows10).
The TOS application must be installed twice in two different directories.
Create two shortcuts and execute each one.
I keep several of my charts, watchlists, scanner on one instance and my main charts, watchlist, detached position statement, and active trader in another. The 2nd instance would not run when I maxed out the memory setups in the sign-in boxes even though I have 32gb of ram. I had to play w/ the ram settings in the sign-in boxes to optimize;
I save different workspace setups for each instance that I swap out depending if it is a bear or bull day and on what strategies I am setting up for.
