One-click closing added, together with improvements for indicators and our mobile version
Going to the beach in August didn’t keep us from improving the Trading 212 platforms and we’re happy to report our progress.
One-click position closing
Until now, when closing an open position, you were prompted with a message to confirm your action. While this prevents accidental closures, quite a few of you requested that it be optional. You can now disable the confirmation pop-up from the settings toolbar.
While this functionality is not yet live in our mobile apps, we wanted to launch the functionality for the web platform as soon as we developed it to provide you with more favourable trading conditions sooner.
Indicator search and groups
Indicators are now easier to find with two new changes. We’ve created a search field from where you can directly type in the indicator’s name and jump to it without going through the dropdown menus. They are also grouped by types (trend, oscillators, volatility and other) for easier selection of multiple but similar indicators.
We’ve made another small improvement for the indicators – when you want to remove one or more that are similar from the chart (different moving averages for instance), it will now be easier to discern them and select the correct one.
Mobile platform improvements
We’ve made many tweaks to the platform’s mobile versions, enhancing the decision-making process and the trading experience. Check out this video for a walkthrough of the new stuff:
The main improvements are the additional timeframes (we now offer 5m, 15m and 30m views) and the ability to view an instrument in three different views – trading, sentiment and daily price change.
You can also manually input the desired quantity, as well as lock the selected one for all orders with the respective instrument. This allows you to place orders faster, at the exact moment you wish to buy or sell.
What’s coming up
This month we’ll continue working on the platform’s hedging mode, as well as an option to view and modify Take Profit and Stop Loss values directly from the chart. We welcome feedback on these changes, as well as suggestions on what you’d like to see.
