Introducing our white theme, new trading instruments and display improvements
We were hard at work over the past several months with introducing the hedging mode and some other great additions to the platform that we’ve recently finalised.
A bit late in the winter months, but we’ve added a snowy white theme for the platform. It’s the opposite of our traditional colour configuration and we received many requests for it, as some of you find it more easy on the eye, both aesthetically and functionally for looking at the charts. The different lighting conditions that surround a trader’s setup, both indoors and outside where a smartphone or tablet is used, guided us while we were working on it. It’s currently available only for the desktop version, but it will included soon in our mobile apps.
Anytime you want to change back to the other theme, it will be just three clicks away – go to the settings button in the top left corner and in the window that appears select the tab on the far left, named themes.
ETFs and Scandinavian stocks added
We’ve also expanded our offerings in terms of instruments (keep your requests coming, anything that passes a critical mass of inquiries is always reviewed and considered for inclusion). In the last month we’ve added ETF’s, or “Exchange-Traded Funds”. These are similar to traditional indices, but focus on countries, industries or other groups of stocks. Their purpose is to offer an alternative to broader and generally more popular indices like the FTSE, Dow Jones etc. By focusing on something more profiled the aim is not only to save time and effort on research, but also to manage risk and possible returns in a reasonable way.
Stocks from Sweden and Norway have also been included, reflecting the solid economies up north and their increasing popularity. Some big names like and H&M, Volvo and Telenor stand out and you can find them in the “Stocks” section of our instruments.
News and price change indications improvements
We’ve improved the news and message buttons, as well as the price change indications. The former are used more frequently and as something that is clicked on more often, the buttons for them needed to be a bit bigger and more discernible from the charting buttons below them.
The other change is relatively small, but we feel it makes the visual representation of price changes better – the red and green prompts for a price going down and up is now on the left side of the trade boxes, making it easier to see which instrument’s price is changing and not confusing it with the one above it in the list (if you’re using a single column with instruments.)
Do you like our new improvements? Would you like to see something else in the platform – both in terms of functionality and trading? Let us know in the comments below.
