hmtoggle_plus1Windows Open In Cascading Arrangement

When several Individual Dealing Rates windows or several Chart windows are opened in a row, they will now open in a cascading (overlapping) arrangement. Previously, when we opened these windows, they would all open directly on top of one another. This is more convenient, as users can now see the title bars of all the windows at once.

hmtoggle_plus1Buy/Sell Menu Change

For greater clarity, the right-click menu items for creating market and entry orders have been modified to explicitly indicate the direction of the order (buy/sell).


hmtoggle_plus1Open Rate Moved to New Column in Orders Window

Orders aimed at closing a position previously displayed a price in both the Ask and Bid column in the Orders window (one price was the order rate, one price was the opening rate of the position). Since this can potentially lead to confusion regarding which price is the order price, the open rate of the position has been moved to a new column (‘Ticket Rate’) which is physically distanced from the Bid and Ask columns.

For C, S, L,M orders (orders aimed at closing an existing position), now only one rate in either Bid or Ask column is shown and that rate is the order's rate.

Previously, a parent open position rate was also shown (in blue color). This has been moved to the new column "Ticket Rate" which is situated right after the column "Ticket". Also a mouse-over hint "Open Rate of Parent Position" has been added for the new column.



hmtoggle_plus1Amount Values Now Include Commas

To ensure visual clarity, the numbers in the Summary window are displayed divided with commas ('Amount K',' NH Amount K', ' NH Lot' fields). The same is done in the Instruments window ('NetChg' field), in the Open Positions, Orders and Closed Positions windows ('Amt,K' field) and in the Order Depth window.

Note: This division affects both the lot and amount view and is fulfilled according to the Windows national parameter settings (comma, blank, dot, apostrophe etc.)

hmtoggle_plus1Keyboard Shortcuts Expanded

They limited keyboard shortcuts introduced in the last release have been expanded with the new ability to use shortcuts to add as well as multiply order amount values.

When creating a new order:

New option: Pressing Ctrl-K will add 1,000 to the order amount.


(If the order amount box is blank, then pressing K or Ctrl-K will enter 1,000 into the box. Pressing K again will multiply the order amount by 1,000. Pressing Ctrl-K again will add 1,000 to the order amount.)


New option: Pressing Ctrl-M will add 1,000,000 to the order amount.


(If the order amount box is blank, then pressing M or Ctrl-M will enter 1,000 into the box. Pressing M again will multiply the order amount by 1,000. Pressing Ctrl-M again will add 1,000,000 to the order amount.)

hmtoggle_plus1Using Drawing Tools On Indicators

Trend lines and other objects available in the Drawing Tools menu in charts can now be drawn on indicators that appear below the chart.


hmtoggle_plus1Trend lines Preserved When Chart Interval Changes

Trend lines drawn on the chart are now saved (redrawn) in the different time frame when the time interval changes in the chart.



15 minute chart



The same trend line on 1 hour chart





The same trend line after changing to 4 hours chart

hmtoggle_plus1Indicators Drawn Behind Candles

In order to improve the visual appearance of charts, indicators are now positioned in the background of the chart (underneath the candles, not over them).






Instrument Subscription *UPDATED*

Traders now have the option to subscribe to and unsubscribe from the instruments of their choice. One of the main immediate advantages to traders is that those trading a small number of instruments will now be able to unsubscribe from instruments they do not wish to see. This will reduce clutter on the trader interface, as well as improving performance for traders with limited internet resources.



Password Retrieval

Forgot your password? The new password retrieval feature will email it to you.



Keyboard Hotkeys (Shortcuts)

The application features hotkeys for the first time. Look for more new hotkeys in the future.



New "% Change" Column in Instruments Window

The new "% Change" column tracks the rate change for the instrument in % throughout the trading day.



New Chart Features (Including Trading From Charts)

The charting capabilities of the application have been greatly enhanced. The biggest new improvement is the ability to make trades directly from charts. In addition, the chart toolbox has been replaced by a more functional and ergonomic toolbar, and it is now much easier to modify the chart display.



Tabbed Windows

It is now possible to group multiple windows into a single, tabbed window. This can save a lot of screen space, giving you great freedom in setting up your workspaces.



Account Information Bar

A new Account Information bar allows traders to view their account information and select the active account, no matter which workspace is currently active.



Reports Window

The new Reports window allows you to run the Trading Statistics and Account Statement reports inside the trading application, without opening a web browser.



Trading Statistics Report

This new report shows a set of statistics for all trades completed during the report period on an account or a set of accounts.



Dealing Rates Windows: New Style

The Dealing Rates and Individual Rates windows have a new style and new functionality. All dealing rates now include a miniature tick chart, giving you an at-a-glance look at the instrument's recent performance/volatility.



New Options When Creating Conditional Orders

When creating conditional orders, you can now define your order in terms of distance from the market price, as well as projected profit/loss. This is very convenient when setting up stop/limit orders, for example, as you can now configure the order based on the projected profit of the position.



Organize Managed Accounts Window

Traders who have more than one account can now administrate their own managed accounts from this new window.



Lock All Accounts

Available to traders who have more than one account, this feature allows them to keep all their accounts selected in the Account Information window indefinitely.
