Fully customisable, real-time dynamic charts with up to 20 years of history come as standard. With multiple chart types, our in-built Pattern Recognition Scanner and over 80 technical indicators available, you can personalise charts to suit your unique trading style. Plus, you can view live trades on a chart and edit your stop and take profit orders by clicking on the trade icon and dragging the stop loss and take profit levels up or down. If you’re viewing the chart for a product you’re interested in, you only need to click on the buy or sell price to open up an order ticket from which you can place a trade and set your risk-management orders. Our charting tools are indicative and provided for information purposes and must not be relied upon as investment advice.
Our platform features
Our spread betting trading platform is equipped with lots of useful features that give you more control over your trading. Here are some of the highlights:
We know that trading can be a very personal business and as such we have made almost every aspect of our web based application customised and adapted to suit your needs. Have the features and tools you want, where you want. Set trade size and risk management across all your favourite products via our dealing defaults function, save all charts & analysis and even select specific boundary levels around your execution.
You can choose between two different order types when you open a position. Market orders are when you open or close a position at the current market price. Limit orders allow you to enter a transaction at a predetermined price and within a specified time frame. So you can tell the platform to only open a position for you when the price hits a certain level, and you can specify when this order will expire. Please note that your specified target price may not be guaranteed due to market conditions.
Advanced risk management
From our order tickets you can set risk management features such as stop losses, trailing stops and take profit orders. Or, let the platform suggest a stop loss for each position by enabling automatic stop losses. Stop loss orders will close out a position at your specified price to help you limit losses. Trailing stop losses are similar except they move in the same direction as price when it moves favourably for you, in order to lock in profits. Take profit orders allow you to pre-set a profit level at which to close a transaction.
Pattern Recognition Scanner
Developed in-house by our product development team, this system scans over 120 of our most popular products, including all major FX pairs and alerts you to potential technical trading opportunities across multiple time intervals. Using patterns such as triangles, wedges, channels coupled with our bespoke star rating system, the pattern scanner updates every 15 minutes to highlight potential technical trade set-ups. We have also included a back testing function to rate the effectiveness of a specific pattern across a specific interval on every product the system scans.
Chart Message Boards
Share your technical analysis and charting within our online trading community and invite discussion and debate on your views. Browse, rate and comment on other trader’s analysis across all products and seamlessly copy their work on to your live charts with just one click. Chart Message Boards connect our traders as never before with full sharing of trade set-ups and market commentary. Only those accounts with £1000 or more deposited will be able to contribute to the Chart Message Board.
Take more control of your investing by creating and personalising your own watchlists so you can easily monitor the performance of the products you’re interested in.
