How Timeframe Linking Works

Timeframe linking allows you to connect different tool windows (e.g. chart, WatchList condition column, EasyScan, etc.) by time frame. When you change timeframes in any connected window, all connected tool windows change to that time frame. In any Layout, any windows can be linked by timeframe group(s).

1. Linking Charts by TimeFrame

By default, charts in TC2000 are not linked by timeframe automatically.

The Timeframe is unique to each chart and is not linked to another chart or tool window. (In the example shown, the symbols are linked but timeframes are not. Same stock, different timeframes).

Charts can be linked/not linked by either/both symbol and timeframe.

To link charts so that the timeframe for multiple charts is the same whenever timeframe is changed, set your charts to the same Timeframe color group.

3. To change this behavior, set your charts to different Timeframe linking color groups.

Charts sharing the same timeframe color group will always be in the same timeframe

To change a timeframe group, click on the T icon and select a color group (for each window you wish to share timeframes)

There are eight groups to choose from. You can link symbol across layouts even on multiple monitors.

The yellow timeframe group changes chart when any timeframe is changed. The Grey timeframe group means that the window is not linked to another window by time frame

2. Linking Different Tool Windows by TimeFrame

By default, different tool windows in TC2000 are not linked by timeframe automatically

Tool windows can be linked/not linked by either/both symbol and timeframe.

To link tool windows so that the timeframe for multiple windows is the same whenever timeframe is changed, set your windows to the same Timeframe color group. Tool windows with the same timeframe color group will always be in the same timeframe.

To change a timeframe group, click on the T icon and select a color group (for each window you wish to share timeframes)

The yellow timeframe group changes chart when any timeframe is changed. The Grey timeframe group means that the window is not linked to another window by time frame

There are eight groups to choose from. Charts, Scan results/plots/stats, Condition columns and Option chains can be linked by timeframe. You can link symbol across layouts even on multiple monitors.
