ProRealtime Feature request/shortcoming


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

    • US DOLLAR TALKING POINTS: The US Dollar has dropped by as much as 3.3% from the high that was set last Wednesday and many are asking if the USD has topped. Given how aggressively overbought the greenback had become, this retracement looks to be a correction in the trend with no evidence yet of anything larger. However – price is approaching some major supports and performance around those levels will be key for determining near-term strategy. Of particular importance is the fact that the US Dollar is a composite of global currencies so the bigger question is when sell-offs in EUR/USD or GBP/USD might return and, in a related item, how will USD/JPY hold up with the pair pegged to the 145 level thought to be the line-in-the-sand for Japan’s Ministry of Finance?

    • EUR/USD and GBP/USD edge up while USD/JPY falters at ¥145.00 again A pause in the dollar rally sees USD/JPY stuck below recent highs, but both the euro and sterling have made gains in early trading against the greenback.    Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 04 October 2022  EUR/USD rebound continues After falling to a twenty-year low last month, the euro continues to rebound against the US dollar with EUR/USD. This still looks very much like a counter-trend bounce that sees the price head back to the 50-day simple moving average (SMA), currently $1.1018 and then begins to falter. This would be in line with previous bounces since April, all of which have found it impossible to hold above the 50-day SMA. This move could see the price head back to $1.01. Further targets lie at $1.02 and then $1.0374. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD recovers $1.13 The GBP/USD continues to defy the doomsters with a recovery above $1.13. Its own counter-trend bounce remains intact, and if previous bounces are any guide there is still some potential for upside, even if it only reaches the 50-day SMA. Like EUR/USD, the pound is still making lower highs and lower lows against the dollar, with the previous peak at $1.176 marking out the initial target for this bounce. Both stochastics and moving average convergence/divergence (MACD) have room to move up to support this move, but selling the rallies still appears to be the approach here for this downtrending market, although it looks like for now there is still a desire to push the pair higher in the short-term. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY stalls below ¥145.00 It does look like ¥145.00 is the ceiling in USD/JPY for the time being – repeated attempts to break higher have come to naught, despite the continued strength of the US dollar. Indeed, it is perhaps precisely that we need a pullback in order for the trend to revive. The pair rallied hard from the August-lows, and now sits at some distance from the 50-day SMA (currently ¥139.15). A pullback towards this level might ‘clear the air’, create a higher low and provide a springboard for fresh bullish momentum. Source: ProRealTime
