ProRealTime v11 - New features

Platform redesign

The platform has been redesigned with 2 objectives:

  • allowing you to display more useful information in a smaller area
  • saving you time by requiring less clicks to use platform features

Chart improvements


The charting window buttons and menus have been optimized to take less space and give more space to the chart itself.

Customised timeframes

Timeframe and historical data dropdown menus can now be entirely customised.
You can add your own timeframes and historical quantities to the menus and hide the ones that you do not use. Customised timeframes

Chart studies

You can now create different chart studies which are independent from eachother on the same instrument and timeframe (example: different studies for support/resistance and for Fibonacci/Gann).

Objects in different chart studies are independent from eachother - only the objects you have drawn on a specific study will appear in that study.

Each chart study is specific to a financial instrument and is available no matter what workstation template you are using (ex: multiple screen template or single screen template).

Objects & drawing improvements

Drawing toolbar on charts

The object toolbar can now be displayed or hidden on all charting windows, and in the main ProRealTime window. This will allow you to access drawing tools and objects more quickly.

To display or hide the drawing toolbar from your charting windows, click on the drawing icon at the bottom left.

The toolbar can be customized to display the tools that you use in the order that you want. If your charting window is smaller than the toolbar, use your mouse wheel to navigate through the toolbar.
