How to Fix ThinkorSwim's link not working


Staff member
For some reason, all the links from ThinkorSwim are leading to a 404 webpage. More specifically, it will say the following:

Page not found!
The page you are looking for cannot be found because it was either misspelled or has been deleted. Make sure you've typed the URL correctly.


In reality, these shareable links are actually not broken. There is an alternative to loading up a shared ThinkorSwim study, chart setup, or workspace.

Step 1: Go to your ThinkorSwim platform.

Step 2: Click on Setup (top right-hand corner) > Select Open shared item...


Step 3: Paste the link you were given > click Preview


Step 4: Click Ok

After that, you will receive a popup telling you what the indicator has been saved as. You can load it up from your Studies area by typing in the given name.

Hi - I followed the same steps but my plot arrow selection isn't showing either. Here is the code I loaded into the Chart Area. And it is exactly the same code I loaded into the scanner. But when you do it in the scanner and just want to select the Study Blast Off, it does not give you the edit condition choice shown here in the link
(I can't seem to cut and paste the image)

Can Someone please help?

# Blast Off Indicator
# Should use on the Daily chart
# Assembled by BenTen at
# Converted from

input trig = 20;
input paintbar = yes;

def val = absValue(close - open);
def range = high - low;
def blastOffVal = (val / range) * 100;
def trigger = trig;
def alert1 = blastOffVal < trig;
def col = blastOffVal < trig;
assignPriceColor(if blastOffVal<trig then Color.MAGENTA else Color.Current);

#Plot Arrow
plot arrow = col;
