The QuickTrader as the name implies allows the user to quickly enter orders and strategies directly on the chart.
To access the QuickTrader bars click on the button on the ActionBar and two vertical bars (1) will become visible, one in red (short) and one in green (long) as well as a quantity and strategy selection window (2).
If L2 information is available for the instrument in use, there will be horizontal bars as well.
These horizontal bars have a max. length of 4cm and imply the market depth.
Inside these horizontal bars the volume of the price level is displayed as a number but note that these numbers will be displayed only if the tick size is not too tight so it can fit inside the bar.
The bars are colored in red for market depth and volume above the market price and green for market depth and volume below the market price.
(2) Quantity and Strategy selection window
- Quantity: standard order size of the trade, if AT++ is NOT activated
- Stratrgy: setupEscort strategies, if AT++ is activated
