The Trader TV gadget allows you to view live streaming video channels from trading news providers. Like all other gadgets, Trader TV can be displayed as a section of the left sidebar or a separate window (see the Left Sidebar article for details).
Times and Sales is a thinkorswim gadget that provides you with more in-depth data on a specified instrument. This data includes records on time, price, and volume of each transaction completed for this instrument intraday. Like all other gadgets, Times and Sales can be displayed as a section of the left sidebar or a separate window (see the Left Sidebar article for details).
In the gadget header you will see the following elements: the symbol selector, the 'clip' icon , the full name of the symbol, the current market price of the selected symbol, and its percentage and absolute change since midnight. The clip icon brings up a color-and-number selection menu; choosing a color in this menu will link Times and Sales to all thinkorswim components with similar color. Consider linking Times and Sales to a watch list so that clicking through the latter will immediately display the corresponding symbols in Times and Sales.
Once you have selected the symbol, the working area of the gadget will display the transaction records sorted by transaction time, newest first. By default, the gadget will also display the price and the volume of each recorded transaction. The list of records is refreshed every five minutes and transactions older than that are removed. Viewing all recorded transactions might be unnecessary sometimes, so you can filter the records by size of the transaction. Click on the header of the Size column and select the desirable size range from the drop-down so only records that fit into this range will be displayed. You can also specify a custom range by clicking Customize Size Filter in this drop-down.
If you need to load additional trading data into Times and Sales, you can customize the columns. Right-click anywhere in the table header and choose Customize. In the dialog window, customize the set of columns: in addition to the default ones, you can add instrument's bid and ask values and also the exchange where the transaction was completed (marked by letter X in the Available Items list). Note that in Times and Sales, the exchanges are named using a one-letter code; the full list of codes can be found here.
Live Audio is a thinkorswim gadget that allows you to stay tuned to your favorite Internet radio channels. Like all other gadgets, Live Audio can be displayed as a section of the left sidebar or a separate window (see the Left Sidebar article for details).
You can select any a pre-defined channel on the list or specify a custom one (this can be done by choosing Custom... from the drop-down). Click Update to view an updated list ofavailable channels. Once you've selected the channel, click Play to tune in to it.
The Quick Quote gadget allows you to view basic pricing data of a symbol. This data includes current last, bid, and ask prices and also the net change. For futures and forex, the net change is measured from the last transaction in the previous trading session; for other instruments, since morning. The Quick Quote is basically a watch list that only has one symbol in it. While you cannot customize this watch list, all other watch list functions are available: you can send orders, create alerts, and view more in-depth info on the symbol from the right-click menu.
