ToolTip: Spank Father Time While Improving Your Trades

Add seconds to the Time column display on your Trade-Ideas Alert window

Take a look at Figures 1 and 2 below:

Figure 1 on top (or on the left) shows the standard display of time in TI PRO. Figure 2 (on the bottom (or on the right) shows the display with seconds added. How did we do it?

To display the time in seconds on your Trade-Ideas Alert window please add the following line to the bottom of the local.ini file (be sure to save file).

TimeFormatList=hh:nn:ss M/d/yyyy|hh:nn:ss

You can find that file in the same directory as the TI Pro exe file. By default, it will install in the following directory:

C:\Program Files\Trade-Ideas\Trade-Ideas Alerts

This will display the time in seconds; it will be followed by the date if there is room in the cell. You will need to restart TI Pro for this to take effect.

Now if reversing time were only this easy . . .
