V3 is out. Does not appear to be a huge resource hog as Bryan initially told me. However, appears less sensitive so you may have to change the ATR settings if you want it to pick up all the pivots.
Default is 0.50 upper but I am trying 0.25 for a while. More sensitive but will be trading full time for a few weeks.
#markettide Spoke with Bryan this morning. They are rolling out version 3 either this week or next. He told me it maxes out TOS so if you have a slower computer like my laptop you may be better off staying with version 2. However version 3 is supposed to have scanning and my desk top has the power to handle it. He also said thanks to everyone at the Bistro that picked it up. The scanning should give live time signals!

Tradestation 10 has some huge memory requirements, that was my issue with it not working. I spent 2 hours with Tech sorting out the issues. Bottom line, you need a 10gb memory chip to run version 10. If you don’t have that stay with version 9.5 and they will continue to support it. Option station pro requires less power on that version as well. However, you have to uninstall all previous version and re-install it for the 9.5 version to work correctly. Ghost files from the other version interferes.
I am trying to figure out a way to separate my accounts from the service accounts. May take me a little while to figure out an easy template. In the meantime will probably only have time to post on the weekends. Once I can easily separate them should be able to update on a more regular basis.
Also will be doing more buy writes for #pietrades depending on directional signals. Better returns than just selling puts if I have a upward bias. The other option is more ATM or ITM puts if I think it is headed higher.
Hope everyone is doing well and staying dry or at least having fun with some snow:)
Just wet here.
How is #markettide working?? Have not seen it mentioned lately.
Has anyone heard from Bryan about v3 or other updates? I thought v3 was imminent when he did the last webinar. I haven’t heard anything in a while but I had an email mixup with AlphaShark because I unsubscribed at one time.
