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

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.

Hi  & ,

 

Thanks to you both for your input, I've passed the feedback to the ProRealTime team for their consideration. Cheers for taking the time to provide suggestions, and please keep them coming!

. 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

    • Week ahead 12/12/22: Fed, BoE, ECB decisions With little or no corporate data we focus in on central bank decisions at the Federal Reserve (Fed), Bank of England (BoE) and European Central Bank (ECB). IGTV senior analyst, Joshua Mahony, discusses trades around the volatility index, the VIX, EUR/USD and the S&P 500.      
    • Charting the Markets: 9 December FTSE 100, DAX 40 and CAC 40 regain lost ground ahead of US PPI data. EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and AUD/USD look to continue their bullish two-month trend. And gold and natural gas edge higher but oil prices keep falling.         This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD look to continue their bullish two-month trend EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD look set to continue their bullish momentum, with recent worries cast aside for now.    Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 09 December 2022  EUR/USD continues to push higher after recent pullback EUR/USD has seen a more upbeat tone over the second half of the week, with the dollar strength seen on Monday and Tuesday fading to give way to another push higher for this pair. Markets appear to be in a state of flux, with inflationary concerns reemerging in the wake of last Friday’s jump in US average earnings. Today sees the release of the US producer price index (PPI) inflation figure, bringing potential volatility if we see factory prices head higher. China certainly has little to worry about on that front, with both consumer price index (CPI) (1.6%) and PPI (-1.3%) well below target thanks to cheap Russian fuel and lockdown restrictions. For EUR/USD, we would need to see a move back below the $1.029 swing-low to bring about a fresh bearish signal after two-months of upside for the pair. Until then, the bulls remain in the driving seat. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD pushing back into key resistance GBP/USD also saw a somewhat downbeat start to the week, with the pair heading lower from the crucial $1.2293 swing-high resistance level. That August high provides a crucial hurdle up ahead for bulls, with a push through that point bringing expectations of another leg higher from here. The uptrend in place over the course of the past two-months has brought expectations of further upside unless we see that ongoing pattern of higher lows end. With that in mind, a bullish view holds unless the price falls back below the $1.19 level. Keep an eye out for the UK consumer inflation expectations figure released at 9.30am this morning. Source: ProRealTime AUD/USD struggling to maintain recovery pace AUD/USD has similarly been attempting to regain ground today, with the gains seen across EUR/USD and GBP/USD failing to carry through here. This could signal a potential waning of the bullish momentum, with the fact that these pair have been slowing in their ascent of late serving to highlight the potential for another bearish reversal in the near-future. That would tally up with what is happening in equity markets, which have shown initial tentative signs of a turnaround before long. With that in mind, watch out for a break back below the $0.664 level to signal a bearish turn for this pair. Until then, the uptrend evident over the past two-months does remain in play.
