MULTIPLE TRADING ACCOUNTS
Never miss an opportunity when you sign-up for multiple trading accounts: you can now monitor all trading activities, positions and orders at one time. Traders no longer need to choose an account in each order ticket, and can be confident that placed trades are going to the right account.
The Active Trading Account is now an application-wide, color-coded setting: for live accounts, for simulated accounts. Choose the desired Active account from 'Order Ticket' > 'Quick Order Expression' (now located at the top of all screens).
Quickly place orders using your keyboard and the application's auto-complete or repeat order expression. Provides the speed and efficiency you need for fast entry and high-volume trading.

Place market orders, limit orders and stops with the click of a mouse while monitoring for volume traded at various price levels. With DOM Trader, you can view the day's total volume traded at each price level. The Volume at Price feature helps you identify trends and volume patterns as you place orders. Side-by-side view of buy/sell orders or Level 2 data provides insight about depth of liquidity in a given market.
View a breakdown of all your recent and current activity on an easy-to-navigate Reports page. View Position Summary to see real-time positions and account balances. The Order Summary shows all working and filled orders. Export this data to your desktop (in .csv format) to keep track of all your trades.
