PRT Enhancement request - Indicators


Stef

Question

Hi All,

 

Why is the display information of an indicator not stored with the indicator?

 

When you create an indicator, you can change the display style (line, histogram, point, etc), colour, and width. You can even then set it as default for every time you put this indicator on a chart. Great!

 

But not so great when you duplicate an indicator - when for instance creating an indicator 'like' the first one, but not wanting to replace the first one.

 

When you do this, all formatting is lost. That's just stupid! So, for each variable that you return, you have to again, set things like, width, style, and colour.

 

PS: Yeah, I know that you can set the colour when you return the variable, but you cannot set the width and style. So, enhancing ProBuilder language to be able to return the width and colour would be one way (probably the easiest way) to solve this.

 

Regards

Stef

Hi Stef,

 

Thanks for sharing your idea. I can see how there could be value in remembering the format and so I have contacted ProRealTime with regards to this.

 

As soon as I hear form them I will let you know!

 

Thanks

Hi Stef,

 

The ProRealTime team have reverted back with regards to your feewdback.

 

They have said they are currently working on improving the Probuilder language which will include adding new vocabulary. With the new vocabulary you will be able to draw certain objects right in the coding zone.

 

With the ideas you have shared they will be submitted to the specific team in charge of these improvements.

 

Thanks again and keep these ideas coming!

    • Charlotte, we keep seeing the message that's it's small caps that have been withdrawn. It isn't.  For example, Hikma has a market cap of £5.2bn and is in the FTSE100. How do we know which other companies IG might decide to do the same to? We are also told that it's due to exceptional client demand. In that case, limit new opening positions (buy and sell). Why should we long-term clients suffer due to this?
    • Hey,  I completely understand your frustration and I will pass it onto our senior team as well as the exposure desk.  The decisions has been made but I'm so sorry for how it's impacting your trading. With exceptional client demand in the equity space, we have reviewed our 12000 leveraged markets and decided to withdraw less than 1000 small cap equities, after a review of associated returns on these markets. We will continue to support these markets for Share Dealing, where that product is available. Sorry again for this inconvenience.  All the best 
    • Hey @SunnyD, Thanks for your post,  If you buy a future contract it usually has a slightly larger spread however you're not  subject to overnight funding like you are for cash price/ DFB.  You will not be charged 20 pts per night it's just the initial 20 points spread when you open the position. If you leave it there (and have enough on your account to cover your margin) there aren't any other fees.  Just as a heads up the April contract actually expires in March. You can find details on the platform in the get info section:  All the best
