ProRealtime Feature request/shortcoming


Guest Stef

Question

I use PRT's "Spreads" functionality in order to chart equity pairs for equity pair trading strategies.

 

It works well, except for the following:

 

When I move my mouse cursor over the chart, it shows the value at the cursor using 2 digits only. This does not help much when checking levels. As an example, if you look at the included chart you will see that I am trading the ratio entering at 2.684, with a target ratio of 2.8269. When trying to check different levels, by moving my mouse cursor, it simply shows everything between 2.7 and 2.75 as 2.7, and everything between 2.75 and 2.8 as 2.8.

 

Spreads

 

Is there any way that this can be added/changed - should probably take all of 5 minutes to implement?

 

Regards

Stef

Afternoon Stef,

 

Thanks for the feedback on the spread functionality. I've passed this over to the development team at ProRealTime for them to consider. They're really interested in feedback from Community members, and they've asked me to collate all comments we receive. They'll also be taking a look at Community from time to time, so keep you suggestions coming.

 

One thing I will add, is that although a suggestion may appear easy to implement on the surface, it may require a lot more work than it seems. Development time needs to be set aside, and the full consequences of any changes need to be considered, especially if they may impact on other features. I hope this goes someway to explaining the time it can take to implement suggestions across our platforms.

 

Thanks,

Dan

Hi Stef,

 

ProRealTime have got back to me on the point you raise previously. They've said that the decimal precision that's displayed on the scale depends on the density. If you were to expand/zoom into the graph, the scale will become denser and you should see more decimal places.

 

Alternatively you can enter the chart settings and set the scale density to HIGH:

Can you let me know if this helps.

 

Thanks,

Hi Dan,

 

I have built many systems in my life, and probably understand more than what you may think. I also understand that a lot of times features do not get implemented not because they are not good, or because of their impact, and or time or complexity required to implement, but simply because of prioritization of bug fixes, or other features (so called) business analysts think are more "useful" or "important."

 

Good/needed features often times just get moved to the bottom of the list because of lack of urgency, and therefore never get implemented. I'm not dissing anybody, it's just a simple, unfortunate, fact of development. Some features really are quick and easy to implement - like the number of digits displayed on a chart.

Hi Dan,

 

This is interesting. Without doing anything different, or making any changes to my chart settings, this is what I now see:Capture.PNG

 

Might be wrong, but it looks like it has been changed.

 

If I go to Help -> About, it says the last update was 25 Nov 2015, which is about a month later than my original post.

 

So, here is my question: Where can one see a list of new features and bug fixes when a new build of PRT is released/implemented?

 

Regards

Hey ,

 

Glad to see that has now been implemented. I wasn't aware of any changes being implemented, however I know IT-Finance are in a constant cycle of updates and development.

 

Let me check with them as to whether they publish a release list of new features and bug fixes. I'll come back to you once I have heard back from them.

 

Thanks,
Dan

Hi ,

 

ProRealTime don't currently publish a list of bug fixes and releases. They've said that they may be able to provide us with a list of issues/improvements raised via IG that will be fixed/implemented in a new build of the charts.

 

I'll let you know if ProRealTime are able to compile this.

 

Thanks,
Dan

    • Asian shares dropped sharply overnight, influenced by a slump in global tech stocks. Chinese stocks, iron ore, and oil prices fell further after China's central bank unexpectedly cut longer-term interest rates. European markets were set for a lower open, following heavy losses on Wall Street. On Wall Street, the Nasdaq experienced its worst one-day fall since 2022, dropping almost 4% due to disappointing earnings from Alphabet and Tesla, while the S&P 500 finally snapped its streak without a 2% drop, having gone for 356 days without such a one-day fall. Investors sought safety in cash and short-term debt, with US two-year yields hitting their lowest in almost six months. The Japanese yen strengthened as a safe-haven currency, reaching its strongest level in 2.5 months. Today's data barrage from the US includes initial jobless claims, durable goods orders and the first GDP reading for Q2. US futures are slightly higher after yesterday's steep losses.

    • Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart, Euro/British Pound (EURGBP) Day Chart EURGBP Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Trend MODE: Impulsive STRUCTURE: Orange wave 3 POSITION: Navy blue wave 3 DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER DEGREES: Orange wave 4 DETAILS: Orange wave 2 appears complete; now orange wave 3 of 3 is active. Wave Cancel Invalid Level: 0.84997 The EURGBP Elliott Wave Analysis on the day chart suggests the market is currently in a trending phase. The trend's mode is impulsive, indicating strong, directional price movements. The specific wave structure being analyzed is orange wave 3, positioned within navy blue wave 3. This position indicates the market is in the third wave of a larger impulsive sequence, often characterized by substantial price movements within the wave cycle. The next higher degree direction is indicated as orange wave 4. This suggests that following the completion of the current impulsive wave (orange wave 3), the market is expected to enter a corrective phase (orange wave 4). This phase typically involves a pullback or consolidation before the market resumes its primary trend direction. Detailed analysis shows that orange wave 2 appears to be complete. This suggests that the market has finished a corrective phase and has now entered orange wave 3 of 3, which is part of the impulsive sequence. This wave is crucial as it generally indicates a strong continuation of the trend, often marked by significant price movements. A critical aspect of this analysis is the wave cancellation invalid level, set at 0.84997. This level is vital for validating the current wave structure. If the market price falls below this point, it would invalidate the current wave analysis, necessitating a re-evaluation of the wave pattern. In summary, the EURGBP day chart analysis indicates the market is in an impulsive trend phase within orange wave 3, following the completion of orange wave 2. The current focus is on orange wave 3 of 3 within this structure, suggesting strong upward momentum. The analysis anticipates a transition to orange wave 4, a corrective phase, once the current impulsive wave completes. The wave cancel invalid level is 0.84997, crucial for maintaining the validity of the current wave analysis.   Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4 Hour Chart, Euro/British Pound (EURGBP) 4 Hour Chart EURGBP Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Trend MODE: Impulsive STRUCTURE: Gray wave 3 POSITION: Orange wave 3 DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER DEGREES: Gray wave 4 DETAILS: Gray wave 2 appears complete; now gray wave 3 of 3 is active.

The mode of this trend is impulsive, indicating strong, directional price movements. The current wave structure under analysis is gray wave 3, with a specific focus on orange wave 3 within this structure. This positioning implies the market is in the third wave of a larger impulsive sequence, typically characterized by the most substantial price movement within the wave cycle. The next higher degree direction is indicated as gray wave 4. This suggests that after the completion of the current impulsive wave (gray wave 3), the market is expected to enter a corrective phase (gray wave 4). This phase usually involves a pullback or consolidation before the market resumes its primary trend direction. Detailed analysis shows that gray wave 2 appears to be complete. This suggests the market has finished a corrective phase and has now entered gray wave 3 of 3, which is part of the impulsive sequence.

If the market price falls below this point, it would invalidate the current wave analysis, necessitating a re-evaluation of the wave pattern. In summary, the EURGBP 4-hour chart analysis indicates the market is in an impulsive trend phase, specifically within gray wave 3, following the completion of gray wave 2. The current focus is on orange wave 3 within this structure, suggesting strong upward momentum. The analysis anticipates a transition to gray wave 4, a corrective phase, once the current impulsive wave completes.
