Now traders do not have to open a simulated account with a given broker if they want to see how their strategy behaves in real-time trading.

Forex Board

A new window – Forex Board has been added, where one can see data and trade the selected instruments with classic Forex interface showing Ask and Bid price, size and spread in a fully customizable way.

domDepth of Market (DOM) Volume Profile

Volume Profile is now available in the DOM window enabling traders to monitor changes in trade volume while making trading decisions live.

Trades Summary

A new “Trades Summary” tab has been added to the Order and Position Tracker window. It allows creating a single custom performance report for multiple brokers, accounts and instruments without using a chart.

Export Segments of Performance Report

Now it is possible to select which values to export from Performance Report saving time and making the exported report easier to analyze.

Realized PnL

Order and Position Tracker – Positions History tab now displays Realized PnL for all supported brokers, except FXCM.

FXCM connection

Fans of FXCM, however, would enjoy a special improvement, as the FXCM connection now uses the Forex Connect API.
