Am I missing something>

Hi All,

Joined Apiary last week, going through the modules. Checking out Alveo, putting in tiny orders-really, just seeing how it works.

OK. So then I go through some modules and am trying to learn and test out the strategies we are being taught- BUT I can't find any of the indicators-MACD, moving averages etc. Am I just not looking in the right place?

Any help would be much appreciated!

is it on alveo you cant find them?

 
daveparke

select the chart you are using, click on "insert" top left > indicators, then list will appear.

There they are. Thanks so much Dave Parke. Whew. I thought I might have to learn code to add or something.

How do you change the period in an EMA?

arkmventuresllc, right click on the chart that has the EMA on it, select "Indicators". A window will pop up that has all your indicators on the left side Click on the EMA you want to change, and the right side of the window will show you all the properties. Under settings, there is a property named "period", change it to whatever you want and click OK.

ark right click on chart select indicators then select your ema then scroll down to period and highlight the numbers and type in desired period and hit ok if you want it for future charts save the template

What are the hours of the day we can use Alveo? I've tried logging into the darn program at least a dozen times over the past week, but constantly get "internal error" messages. I've only been able to login to Alveo twice - once today around noon EST and once last week for about an hour. I'm not liking this "14 day free trial" where Im not able to access the software to try to play

well, I spent another 1/2 hour trying to download the alveo to my ipad - that was a waste of time too! Safari can't download - so you have to get another browser, like mozilla first...IF you can get a MAC to work! LOL...as for me, I'll stick to my mobile phones and 10 yr old laptop...if I get lucky, "maybe" I'll get to try that alveo program.

MarshaMaines I run alveo on a mac You just need a program like parallels with windows on it. I think you can do the bootcamp thing too but I am unfamiliar with that Alveo should work anytime the market is open note: Alveo uses a lot of ram and a 10 year old laptop might not have enough Ram......check and see how many gB of ram it is running

MARSHAMAINES, Maybe set up a virtual machine on your MAC that runs Windows and install it there, that'd be the workaround I could think of.

I faced this problem when I tried to start trading when I joined , and my solution was to not pay a monthly fee of around $67 approximately for the Cloud thru Alveo to run my Mac . Bought a new HP Touch Screen with Windows 10 instead , and the biggest gain for me is the Touch Screen that allows me to magnify the charts and numbers using two fingers as done on a cell phone .
