by Quantower  |  January 29, 2019

As we continue our struggle to adding exchange connections like CQG, the platform receives more and more useful and important features. 

Today we present version 1.33, which is included:

  • long-awaited BitMEX
  • a new panel for combining two different connections into one — Symbol Mapping Manager
  • Chart Alerts functionality for notification of the price crossing of a specified level
  • Adding trading via Option Analytics panel, as well as various fixes

Market Data from BitMEX

We know that many of our users are waiting for integration to BitMEX crypto exchange. Such popularity is explained by the fact that it is possible to trade derivatives for different currency crypto (futures).

New panel — Symbol Mapping Manager

This new panel allows you to combine two different connections into one. In this case, quotes are received from one connector and trade orders are sent to the other connector. This is relevant when there is no historical or real-time data (ticks, level 2 quotes, etc.) on the selected trading connection.

Symbol Mapping Manager creates the link between quoted and trading connections

For example, OANDA broker does not provide historical tick data, which makes it impossible to use volume analysis tools for currency pairs. But LMAX broker provides a tick history. Therefore, when creating the bind with OANDA + LMAX, it is possible to analyze the chart using the volume analysis directly on one chart and send orders to the OANDA broker.

Chart Alerts are ready to use

Are you worried you missed another entry signal? Now there is no need to monitor the chart all the time while waiting for the signals, it is enough to set an alert on the chart.

Alert is located on the sidebar of the chart and marked as a bell icon. When you click on it, a line will appear, which you place on the chart at the desired price. By default, the alert is set on and when the price reaches the specified level, the sound and text notification will appear.

In the additional settings you can set the type of intersection at which the notification will be triggered, actions after the triggering, as well as specify your own notification text.

Conclusion
