When the green and red VSA indicators have disappeared from your chart and the diamond trend is all gray, you will need to reset the activation of both the TG_VSAPlugin and the TG_VSAScanner on your computer.


These steps will help you perform the activation reset.

  6. Create a new profile.
    1. Click File on the menu, choose Profiles, then choose Save As, name your new profile.
