After purchasing the Voodoo Lines, you'll be sent the initial installer along with installation instructions. Each month a new Voodoo Lines update will be released providing an updated symbols list. Currently with ThinkorSwim you'll have to manually add the update for each release, but luckily this is pretty straight forward. Follow the instructions below as it will explain step-by-step how the Voodoo Lines are installed in ThinkorSwim:
