  1. Hi @Charlotte, Its fantastic to have equity options but the whole option offering is really not user friendly or wallet friendly at all at the moment. What would it take for you to offer us atleast set a simple stop-loss within the options? Surely you don't expect everyone's eyes glued to their positions and manually close it, in case the worst should happen. Even better would be having the exact features already present, like take-profit, limit order or stop orders etc. see i have not even mentioned about the greeks....
  2. I have not checked today but within PRT under the Help menu itself you would find directions/links to all the help manuals for the version currently running
  3. The page does look updated but i find the download is still there.
  4. i dont think spread is a component that sticks to every trade, that a new idea for me. the bid/ask at the time of closing will apply, unlucky if it widens like out of hours etc. i don't think the big banks etc cares about fairness for us retailers in trading. looking at ways with their HFT and running stops and what not to reduce burden and fill their coffers in every possible way
  5. Depends on the instrument, for example Dow can move wildly anywhere around 50 points within few seconds especially around the open/close hours. Once i moved SL to +3.5 pts for breakeven but ended up with -2.5pts loss. now i add atleast 5pts extra for slippages.
  6. I don't know if anybody uses alerts effectively as they seem bit rudimentary; i cant find a way to modify an existing alert or temporarily disable them. copying a watchlist in between SB, CFD account rather than adding from scratch. Also in PRT (out of syllabus), i wish there was a way to see how much margin is required for the quantity entered similar to web platform.
