Option Stalker Pro

Automated Trendlines

Pete has labored tirelessly the past few months to develop this feature. By back-engineering his decades of experience, he has created rules to auto-drawn trendlines in OSP and save traders time by vastly reducing the amount of trendlines required to manually draw. To use this feature, simply toggle between 1OTL Now and 1OTL Past at the bottom of the chart. Automated trendlines are applied to Daily Charts only. Read Pete’s article in The System, Automated Trendlines, for more information.

Select the 1OTL Now button at the bottom of the chart to show current trendlines on the daily timeframe.
New Preconfigured Scanners

The Scanners panel in OSP has been given a major overhaul. Enjoy new ways to scan for stocks with new Day and Swing Preconfigured Scanners. They include scans that use moving averages such as Golden Cross and Bullish SMA Cross, breakout-focused scans such as Breakout, Breakout Strong, and Breakout x2, and more. Visit the Glossary for scanner descriptions.

Chart Symbol Tagging

The tag list is a special watchlist that resets each day, and traders use it to track relevant stocks within the trading session. Previously, you could only tag stocks from Scanners or Watchlists using the Plus (+) icon. Now, you can also tag stocks straight from chart via Right-Click.

Chat Room

Top Symbols

The Top Symbols lists give users a new angle to analyze the chat room and incorporate its data into their trading regiment. These lists scan messages for SYMBOL links (using the style applied via the blue A button or preceded by “$”) and compiles a list of top-mentioned symbols in descending order. The results can be filtered to only include symbols accompanied by an entry badge. The counts for Long and Short entires are also included in green and red columns.

Top Symbols located within the Symbols tab
Updated Quotes

To streamline the chat room by reducing the amount of clutter and unnecessary blank space, we’ve streamlined quoted message in a couple of ways: (1) Quoted messages are reduced to text-only and only a short excerpt is included. (2) These messages are displayed in a single paragraph at the bottom of the newly composed message.

Option Stalker Pro

Workspace Save/Load

From the File menu, you can now ‘Save Workspace’ to save the charts, indicators and other settings currently present in your workspace layout. When ‘Auto-Load Workspace’ is checked, the most recently saved workspace will load at startup.

File menu accesses workspace functions
Intraday Price Lines

You can now display price levels for Previous Day High, Previous Day Low, and Daily SMA 20, 50, 100, and 200 on intraday charts. Simply Right-click the chart to apply.

Right-click>EOD Lines displays intraday price lines
New Study: Laguerre RSI (LRSI)

Apply the LRSI via ‘All Studies’ on a chart. Learn more about this indicator with this video.

LRSI oscillator is displayed above volume
New Study: Keybar

Apply Keybar via ‘1O Studies’ on a chart. A key bar has a greater than average ATR, a large body relative to the intraday range and better than average volume. Typically these bars resulted from a trend day that saw persistent buying/selling. They tend to continue in the direction, particularly if that candle coincides with a breakout above a trendline or a major moving average. When these candles reverse, it happens very quickly. If the open from that candle is reversed, the follow through in the opposite direction will last for at least a few days. When these candles appear at the extreme of a range, use extra caution and confirm the directional strength. Key bars are displayed as candlesticks without fill.

Keybars are outlined and not filled
Volume Bug Fix

User reported issues with volume bars becoming either unresponsive or inaccurate. Volume bars now reliably display correct volume across all APIs. Thank you for your feedback!

Persistent Trendlines

Trendlines now are saved on a chart. If you draw a trendline on ABC, change chart symbol to view stock XYZ, then return to view chart for ABC, the trendline you drew will remain. We hope to apply this across different timeframes in the future. Stay tuned!

Earnings Icons Visibility Toggle

Not only did we redesign the earnings icons (let us know if you prefer them larger!), but we also added the option to show/hide these icons on a chart. Simply Right-click chart to toggle earnings icon visibility.

Zoom Standardization

Some users reported chart zoom adjusting slightly when a chart symbol is changed. We made some changes to prevent this behavior. Now, chart zoom is fixed unchanged when switching symbols. This ensures that charts are aligned when stacked vertically, such as for comparison to SPY.

Standardized zoom allows stacked charts to display aligned candlesticks
Add Symbol To Watchlist Shortcut

There’s a new way to quickly add symbols to watchlist: Right-click charts and lists to bring up the dialogue and click ‘Add XXX to Watchlist…’ or ‘Append to List’.
