Minor Stuff

Recommended Posts

Hello Anton, 


Thanks for your follow-up on ST's points much of which I agree with too. 


Here are some minor improvements and some observations.


For convenience and efficiency please consider the following:



Could you move the order or position label a bit further in from the left, so that if drawing exists at the same location the cursor can pick it up if required? Right now the gap is very small to the border as illustrated in the image here. Note also the the STOP level line should be "sent to back" of the horizontal line label so the label is legible.FB-IX.jpg







Observations :

If I am not mistaken you have limited the number of earnings labels in an events calendar. I would prefer to be able to see at least a year back. Have you also further limited the amount of historical data for markets too? It seems less than before to me.

Maybe there is a feature to allow one insert date ranges of data to view and I have not found it - but the bottom of screen drag is too slow a process when you want something finer than the zoom buttons provide.


Note you also still have windows spreading too wide. Yes I know I could get it back in by changing my resolution but I should not have to do that:FB-X.jpg



Thanks, D

Thank you for sending us your ideas on how to improve our charts. We have received quite allot of feedback on how drawings are added to charts and how to move them or maybe moving them by accident. One of the suggestions was that we have an option on the chart that would lock the drawings so if you move the chart you don't move the drawings by accident. We are looking into different ways to improve how drawings work and I will add your suggestions to the discussion. 


We have not reduced the amount of historical data on instruments, it still works the same way as on the classic platform where the smaller the timeframe the less historical data you would be able to see.


If you have any examples where you feel that some date were lost then please give us a call or send us an e-mail to our helpdesk so we can investigate it for you.


Thank you again for your feedback.

Just an update, our developers have confirmed that they have reduced the borders on  horizontal lines to prevent cases where you want to move the chart but end up moving the drawing by mistake. Please give it a try and let me know if you find it easier to navigate the charts

    • Finance ‘fact, but fictionalised’ books
      Get involved with a discussion from one of our Community members; "Which interesting finance and trading related books have you read and would recommend? Maybe they don’t need to ALL be specifically like that but any trading books you find interesting. 

      I am currently reading Dark Pool by Scott Patterson and it’s very very interesting. I would recommend reading or getting from Amazon or the library if you can. Paperback is a few quid and it’s an interesting read. All about how these matching engines started and pooled liquidity away from the main exchanges. It gives you a good understanding of the “plumbing” behind it all. Also makes more sense when looking at the market. 

      I’m the sort of person who would like to read as much around a topic as possible and I think it makes you a better well rounded trader to understand the back end too. Has anyone else got some books to recommend please?"

    • Retail sector profit warnings - EMEA brief 23rd July
      Fear of an increase in protectionism from the United States causes Asian equity markets to dip. Profit warnings rise 29% quarter on quarter to 58 FTSE listed companies. Retail sector leads the way, and its expected the earnings shall continue due to uncertainty in the future.

      Looking ahead, a somewhat quiet start to the week on the economic calendar sees eyes turn to eurozone concerns, with the Bundesbank monthly report and consumer confidence from the eurozone. The US markets will be looking towards US existing home sales figure, following on last week’s disappointing building permits and housing starts figures. The earnings season ramps up, with today’s earnings from Alphabet representing the first heavy hitter to keep an eye out for.
