Enhancement to Trade Bar

Postby Tresor » 01 Jul 2011

Hi all,

I perceive the recently added manual trading capabilities best in class. The Trading Panel is fantastic. No other trading platform comes near in terms of usability and flexibility.

I am a trader who does not need all these bells and whistles and considers ''less is more''. I prefer to trade from Trade Bar.

I think there is room for improvement in Trade Bar. I would like Trade Bar to have a few additional fields:
- Close
- PnL
- ST
- TP
- Trailing Stop

What do you think?

Let's see whether other people want this added.

From a tech standpoint, I know that currently the Trade Bar doesn't 'listen' to PnL, it just reads the ask and bid prices to display in the Trader's Calculator. Otherwise there is no backward communication between the bar and the broker. This would have to be added.
