Our new Charting Package
As part of our commitment to offer our clients one of the best financial spread betting services in the industry we are launching a new and exciting charting package, available from 16th July 2011.
Charts play a fundamental part of forming a trading strategy and our new charts are designed to make formulating your strategies quicker and easier.
So why are we going to such lengths to make such a major change to our product offering? Well, there are a number of key attributes that make our new charting package far better and sophisticated than the current charts:
- • Free back testing tools
- • Free email or MSN alerts – set your own rules up
- • More drawing features such as Fibonacci time zones, fans and arcs
- • More time periods such as 2 hours, 4 hours and monthly
- • More history available for shorter time periods
- • More cursor styles and price display options
- • A “snap to high/low” feature for drawing lines
- • Many more indicators
- • They are built in Flash as opposed to Java
Best of all, the charts remain totally FREE to all our clients.
We appreciate that changing our charts is a major undertaking and can take a while to get accustomed to. This is why we have a range of materials to help you make the most of these powerful new charts.
Firstly there is a comprehensive User Manual which covers all elements of the charts. You can also access this user manual from the charts themselves.
Secondly we have three videos which show you the charts in use and explain their features clearly.
How to get started – an introduction to the new charts, which covers all the basic features, including drawing, zooming, adding/removing indicators and other chart settings.
How to use alerts - You can set up alerts from our charts so that you will be emailed or alerted via MSN whenever a pre specified condition is met. So for example, if a price breaks through a trend line you’ve drawn or if a technical analysis crossover occurs, you can be instantly alerted so that you don’t miss a potential trading opportunity. With no complex coding or programming required, you can set up alerts quickly and easily.
How to back test - Use the back testing functionality to see how certain price movements or other historical technical analysis conditions have performed. This way you can see whether a strategy that you are interested in had been successful or unsuccessful in the past.
We have designed these charts to make them intuitive to use, but hope that these extra educational resources will be of use in case you need them.
