In the last two months, we’ve been hard at work adding some new features and upgrading parts of our design. We’ve also been paying attention to your requests for new trading instruments where stocks have seen an increase in interest, so we’ve responded with more additions. Here are the main improvements we’ve made in September and October.
New European stocks available for trading
While we do have an extensive list of US stocks available in the platform, European stocks have been somewhat underrepresented. Our last several updates have been with Swiss, Danish and Austrian stocks and we’ve completed the list from those countries, throwing in some French and Finnish companies.
Here is the complete list:
Air France KLM SA
AP Moeller – Maersk A/S
Danske Bank A/S
Neste Oil Corporation
Novo Nordisk A/S
Royal KPN N.V.
Royal Philips NV
Stora Enso Oyj
Telekom Austria AG
One of our new drawing tools is live and will help those of you who need to take a closer look at an important period on the chart. It can be activated from the button located below the crosshair on the right-hand side of the platform.
The tool itself is used by clicking on a point on the chart and forming a rectangle covering the targeted area. The end result is a highlighted area with eight points that can be moved to fit around the exact period you prefer.
Usually traders employ it to see when an important change happened for the instrument, like the test of a support and/or resistance, or if a range has been formed. It provides a box with data about the difference (in points, pips and percentages), the high and low, as well as the number of candles (if a candle chart is used). Instead of trying to remember all those numbers you can get them quickly with an easy few clicks. It can remain on the chart as long as you need it, so if you need to take a look at that period again, you just go back to the highlighted period.
New chart icons
Another smaller change can seem subtle at first, but as it’s for something used constantly by all of our users, we’ve given it extra attention. The chart icons on the upper left side are now larger and easier to distinguish and click on. The indicator icon (second from right to left) has a new design and reflects the entry and exit points that all indicators try to provide.
Let us know what you think about our new additions in the comments below. As always we welcome any new suggestions for all aspects of the platform for both its web and mobile versions.
