Graphs (Charts)

Trade tab, you can configure your working place — there are only 4 types — All Products, Forex Trader, Future Trader, Active Trader. They differ from each other by a set of tools on the Advanced tab, and temporal scale of the displayed data. In the Active Trader present 5-minute charts. While Forex Trader displays 12 charts popular currency pairs.

Charts tab is similar to tab Trade, they are very similar and different initial settings and templates for these settings. Under Charts — 6 charts, and tab Trades — 2 graphics, glasses and table deals. In general, both tabs can lead to the same species.

Working with charts is somewhat different from the usual all Metatrader. To get to any tool, there are a few steps through the context menu, or a few buttons in the main menu, which is not very convenient. Irregular grid — that is not composed of identical squares, as in MT4. Graphic tools (Drawing) about the same, but the indicators (Study) is much greater. For convenience, the indicators have a dual partition — alphabetically and by application (the force of the market, trend, etc.)

There are also a tool such as a strategy. They are small scripts, arrows are placed in places of entry and exit activities online. Bektestinga strategies provided.

Trade in ThinkOrSwim

Trade, as elsewhere, are using warrants. Present warrant 4x types — Market, Stop, Limit, TrailStop. Orders such as Stop and Limit and TralStop hung on Market Order. In addition, orders can be tied into complex OCO pair. OCO (One Cancels All) — all orders in the group will be canceled if one of them is executed. Thus, you can put 2 orders in the breakdown of the channel, and when one of them works, then the other — to undo.

For those who do not anywhere except the MetaTrader trading system warrants PaperMoney may seem complicated — but it’s worth to work for a while, and you get used to it.

Incorrectly filled the order will be rejected by the system, and it saves you from mistakes when filling out fields.

When ActiveTrader can see the unique data — the glasses on the instruments, as well as a table of all transactions. This can significantly help in the decision. However, there is a fly in the ointment — for demo data is delayed 20 minutes.

Tools for analysis

A very interesting tool for data analysis. This analysis of volatility, transactions in the past, the risk of a portfolio analysis of returns and so on. In the picture below is a graph of volatility for the S & P500.

For example, we shall take action at the cost of more than $ 10, has grown by more than 1% and with a market capitalization of $ million. At the exit get UEM — only one action complies with the conditions.
