Either fewer symbols in your Watchlists or fewer Custom Columns... The combination of the two is what adds up to the 1500 or 1100 limit currently in place... And that total is for ALL Watchlists, Scans, Option Chain Custom Columns, etc. that are currently running...Where did you have to make this change?
I am also facing the issue, can you please let me know how you stopped the the scan that was running on the background? thanksThanks for the ' ALL' feedback. I happened to have a 20 symbol watchlist with 4 custom columns but...I had a scan with 3 custom columns for about 1000 stocks open in the background. Once I closed the scan the watchlist worked fine again.
Thank you.@Antares66 The error you described has to do with how many custom calculations your TOS install can perform... The limit is either the standard 1500, or 1100 which it may have been changed to in recent months... This means that the total custom calculations for all watchlists, scanner results, etc, cannot exceed 1500 calculated cells...
This has been discussed many times here in the forums and you could have found those topics and/or posts by using the search feature... The solution is to use less custom watchlist columns and custom option chain columns, or reduce the number of symbols in watchlists, or reduce the number of results in scans, or add more filtering criteria to scans, or any combination thereof...
You are only licensed to calculate whichever amount mentioned above that is currently in place... I think at one time it was possible to extend that limit for a fee but I'm not sure if that option is currently available nor what such a fee might be... You would need to contact Thinkorswim to check on that...
Hey @Antares66,I wanted to create a watchlist to see which stocks moved most today and how much they changed in the last 5 days.
It was no problem for me to programm a column set for the weekly change
"def change = (close - close) / close * 100;
plot result = change;"
but i always get the message above and not for all stocks the weekly change shows up.
I know TC 2000 very well. In TC 2000 it´s no problem to look at the weekly percent change rate for all stocks in the entire market.
TOS shows some limitation or i haven´t find out how to solve this problem. I am afraid to miss some stocks since not all show up in my scanner.
Can someone help? Thanks
This ROC really helps to find a strong stock to trade. The higher the value the stronger upside the stock. I was listening to Theo Rayner podcast the other day, ROC was mentioned and I thought of @Antares66 post. I then added a column on my watchlist and chart label (script above). You can also use the above script to scan for strong stocks. I wanted to post in case others may have use of it. The screenshot below of SEAC and GTII with the strong move today and the last 5 days. Good luck! @cabe1332Hey @Antares66,
So, the rate of change for 5 days is "def change = (close - close) / close * 100; I guess then for today is "def change = (close - close) / close * 100;? Has this been working for you on MTF? The TOS study has a different formula. I used your and have them as labels. Does the following script look OK for today and week ROC? Can someone confirm, please? TIA. @cabe1332
#### Rate of change for the day
def priceday = close(period = AggregationPeriod.day);
def changeday = round((priceday - priceday) / priceday * 100,0);
def rcday = changeday;
AddLabel (yes, "ROCtoday: " + rcday + "%", if rcday > 0 then color.green else color.red);
#### Rate of change for the week
def pricewk = close(period = AggregationPeriod.week);
def changewk = round((pricewk - pricewk) / pricewk * 100,0);
def rcwk = changewk;
AddLabel (yes, "ROCwk: " + rcwk + "%", if rcwk > 0 then color.green else color.red);
