Multiple Questions from a week of trading! :)

Hi Everyone! SO thankful for this community. I had done a bunch of small $$ trades over the last week, but my win rate is incredibly high. VERY excited. and its mostly with custom stuff from here. As a relative new trader, I still have a bunch of setup questions I would love some help with!

1. I use active trader with brackets. When the order sells, I get an alert. Is there any way to modify to alert to to be red if it sold down and green if it sold up?
2. I use gap up / down watchlists, the autofib, etd during the day. But, if the ticker gaps up on open, it's up XX%, and its always on the top of my list, but always going down. so, a bad buy. What's a criteria, category, or script that I can put on a WL that can help me see things that are trending up. or at least heading that way?
3. is there a quicker way to purchase on a limit order in AH other than -> right click -> qty -> switch to limit -> switch to EXT?

I know these are bizarre questions, but I dont know where else to go. y'all are so smart!

1.) There is no way to modify the data displayed by alterts... Just plain text...

2.) Watchlists have a Quote Trend indicator column that can give a visual...

3.) Create custom trade templates within your Active Trader Template list and enable Auto Send... You may also want to goto Setup > Application Settings > General >Active Trader and Un-Check the Reset AT order template after sending checkbox so your choice stays as default until you change it...

3. I can't seem to figure out how to set up a buy order template for an EXT limit. is that easy and I'm missing it? I see join the bid, I see buy Market, but I dont see how to default to a limit order...

You create and save it using the Active Trader Template Editor... You have to add that button onto your Active Trade Top Panel by Clicking on the little gear... Then you'll be able to edit and save it to the list...

I suggest adding "TIF" drop down and buy the ask and sell the bid buttons to active trader. And as mentioned earlier, keep "auto send" checked off. TIF will let you keep EXT permanently selected.

Hi guys

Is there any script or a way to make bulk buy and sell stocks on TOS ? with 1 click sell all stocks at market price and enter a list of all stocks and buy them at the same time with market price.
