Just pressed 'Delete' on my 488 custom studies in ToS it is taking FOREVER to delete them haha hopefully will complete soon. 10 Min in so far. EDIT: Took 30 min in total. I have a Surface Go. People with slower computers don't give up :)

How to back up and then later restore indicators/studies?

Teja Jampani

Nice vide Ben! Can you do something similar for IPAD. Mine doesnt even load my scanner watchlist on ipad.

Another speed up helpful hint is if you detach multiple windows and keep diff chart setups on diff windows... but you don't use some of those windows very often. Make backups of the ones you rarely use (keep minimized) and delete those windows from your every day setup. Some peeps make many windows for doing analysis while they're not trading. Those extra windows (even minimized) take up extra assigned memory and can slow your setup down when you are trading.

That doesn't matter. thinkorswim is not for daytraders. lightspeed is the best platform for real time execution with no lag. You're lagging because you're using a commission free platform and your trades are not sent directly to the market makers, you are also leaving thousands of dollars off the table because of poor execution. I'd rather pay $199 a month and $5 per trade for faster execution than lose thousands of dollars from poor execution. Even if you do make a profit imagine how much money you are leaving off the table

Nice Ben! Thanks!

Sabrina Leigh

Thanks Ben!


how exactly does deleting studies not in use help performance? they are not loaded therefore they aren't doing anything at all.

David Trujillo

Another speed up helpful hint it to delete old drawings on all your charts, especially the ones that don't show up on any of your standard timeframes anymore.

Hi Ben! One more additional thing will help to improve go to help tab and click collect garbage I do couple of times in a day. Also in Windows task bar you can set application priority to High so its execution is processed on priority. -renz3
