PRT Feature Request - Computed columns

Question

Hi,

 

This will add a lot of power to the platform I believe. The ability to define your own columns based on formulas.

 

Let me give you an example:

Currently, when displaying Lists, you can choose the Bid and the Ask, but you cannot choose to display the spread!? If you were able to define your own column (based on a formula) it would have been very simple to create your own Spread column as the difference between the bid and ask.

 

Here is another example:

When displaying Open Positions, it is possible to display things such as Gain for the day, latent gain, exposure, % change, latent % change, etc. Problem is, those values are gross profit/loss figures; it does not take into account commissions, overnight costs, borrowing costs, etc. This is probably more applicable to equities, than forex, and other instruments where you trade the spread. With computed columns, it would have been easy to add your own Net Profit percentages and values.

 

I am sure there are more uses for this - these were just the two that sprang to mind.

 

I would appreciate it if other people that see value in this could add there own examples below.

 

Regards

Stef

Hi 

 

I can definitely see where you are coming from here! 

 

The ProRealTime platform very much has customisation as a key feature and so the idea of being able to customise the values that are presented according to what you want to see would appeal to many traders, especially those that might be looking for specific technical data without having the need to have a specific chart open to see it. 

 

I have passed this on to the developers to look at and I do hope one day this will be seen.

 

Please do let us know if you have any other ideas!

    • Hahahaha BBC fact check, you must be joking. All through the 1990s I listened to the Today programme, around 2000 I noticed things were not right, by 2010 it was clear to me the BBC had an agenda and were not impartial at all. That's when I stopped listening to the BBC for news all together. Now I follow 20 - 30 news organisations from around the world. What the BBC were not reporting was often more important than what the were reporting, that is tantamount to lying for a so called 'news' organisation.   'Is that true or did you hear it on the BBC' is a thing.
    • there can only be a few reasons why this farce is given legs, personally I think the most likely reason is that politicians don't want to admit they made a monumental and disastrous mistake that we will be paying for for decades to come, they were all in agreement, both sides of the divide, they are all to blame. They are currently waiting and hoping someone will come up vaccine so they can say 'fixed it' but we're still waiting for a vaccine for the common cold. Doesn't matter anyway as herd immunity will fix it, they just need to be able to say some shot in the arm did it.
    • You must be a big fan of all the memes quoted in this article: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/52847648 I thought we were discussing something interesting here but I  find really hard to argue with that extremist side that you are taking. "You are being played" + "you are going to be microchipped" is too much for me. I step out now.
