Working With Market Information Displays

The first time you open the application the screen arrangement is comprised of three frames. The horizontal frame is labelled "Watchlist" (item 1) , the bottom left frame is labelled "Depth" (item 2) and the bottom right hand frame "Sales" (item 3). In this example we have also included "Headlines" (item 4).

Once you have set your windows and are happy with the desktop. You can save this desktop view by selecting the Save desktop button top right hand corner. Unlimited number of desktops are permitted.
We are now able to add  securities to our Watchlist by typing in the securities of your choice and enter, or even display Market Depth and/or Sales for any security of our choice. Once you have included the securities you wish to monitor, we can then save this combination of displays (that is, Watchlist, Market Depth and Sales) as a desktop.

Right Click functions allow you to set the columns you prefer, add portfolio columns within a watch list, or tailor the window view to suit individual preferences.
