ProScreener window

You can now change the timeframe and market of your ProScreener scans directly from the "Set ProScreener" window. In the Premium version, you can scan multiple markets at the same time.



Easy order placement

Choose a simplified or advanced order interface

A new simplified order interface lets you place at market orders, limit orders, stop orders and trailing stop orders without the use of a dropdown menu to change order types. The previous interface which allows you to place OCO and multiple leg orders is still available too.


To select the new interface, click the wrench icon shown in yellow above and select "Simple orders only". You can customize the interface to display only the order types you use most with the checkboxes.



Contextual order placement

Easily place targets, stops and trailing stops from positions

You can now place your mouse on any position shown on the chart and the application will intelligently offer you options to add target and stop orders to your positions.

To add an order, simply click on the order type of your choice and then place it on the chart.

The size of target and stop orders placed in this manner will be equal to the position size minus size of any existing targets or stops.


Important note: Orders added in this manner are independent from each other. If you want to use an OCO order to place a target and stop (one cancels the other), use the "All orders" interface and select "One cancels the other" as shown:
