ProRealtime - New features request - sort by highlight and pairs in watchlists

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Two more suggestions:

1) Sort by colour. In PRT you can highlight items in lists in different colours; like a watchlist or spread list, etc. It would be great to also be able to sort by colour highlighted - especially for large lists.

2) Ability to add a spread (or ratio) to a watchlist. I do a lot of pair trades (stock1 divided by stock2). I define these in PRT as spreads. It would be great to be able to put the spread/ratio in my watchlist. The same applies to the IG web platform. Why can you not put a ratio/spread/pair in a watchlist?

The second suggestion is a great idea, trading PAIRS at the moment is much harder that it should be.

In fact, we could extended by having alerts on ratios, for instance:

STOCK1/STOCK2 >1.5 should pop up the classic alert.

. You can set up these alerts on PRT if you define the ratio as a spread. You can also add indicators, etc. same as you would with a single instrument.

Hi ,

 

IT-Finance have added your requests to the development list for Version 10.4, as the road map for 10.3 has been finalised. They've also asked me to send their thanks for excellent improvement ideas you continue to contribute.

Hi,

 

Thanks . As an idea, with 10.4, maybe they should focus a bit on productivity/ease of use.

 

As an example, every time that you want to change the way that price is displayed, it takes 4 clicks (spanner->Style->choose style->close dialog). Why not make these available as toolbar buttons? Or, put the most common ones in each price chart's "header" section?

 

Similarly, to delete an indicator takes 4 clicks. Why? Programs such as Amibroker only needs 2; right click the indicator at the top where all displayed indicators are listed, and select delete.

 

For occasional/casual use I guess PRT is fine, but as soon as you start using it to develop and test strategies, etc. it is very cumbersome and slow to use.

 

Before I forget, here' s another one: Code Snippets. Why not allow users to save snippets of code (not functions) in their own library/sections? For example,  snippets of code for different types of stops, for defining position size (like Van Tharpe), etc, etc. Currently, you have to maintain all of these outside of PRT.

 

Regards

Stef

    • Financial Anarchy: one of the main fallacies of Bitcoin. You are that independent holding bitcoin that anytime you want to buy it or sell it have to go through an exchange using your full identity. With all sort of passports and ids checks. Let's not forget that the main goal of many bitcoiners is to amass as much of the correlated fiat currency as possible. With the romantic topic of becoming a blade runner paying in SHA-256 hashes to other elite individuals you watch how your virtual coins grow in value, that value that is established in that so-hated fiat currency. The happiness of a bitcoiner comes with the grow in price of that coin in the exchange. The more coins of the fiat currency they get from their bitcoins the happier they are. So it is all cyberpunk literature with a bit of TAZ philosophy, but bitcoin is no more than a very volatile "financial product", unfortunately , and since I am surrounded in IT departments by bitcoiners I am so tired of listening to people excusing themselves for choosing this overhyped movement over any other FX pair or metal. I understand that people want to get rich quickly and that is why they chose bitcoin, but they want to get rich by grabbing more and more of that fiat currency that they hold in the bank accounts. So let's be honest with ourselves, let's cut the rubbish and call it like it is: Greed on a very volatile market.  
    • The Fed wants to ban it or tax it. No central government likes crypto as its a form of financial anarchy. 
    • Very good point, Casey. They see Bitcoin and want to emulate it, or in the case of the Fed try and ban it. Bitcoin and Crypto have DEMAND. A Euro backed or $ backed crypto may not have them same demand, but will also be seen as currency. Crypto's lack of provenance (political and geographic) is a major USP. The market normally wins as governments know too well.
