Follow the light bulb

Users are notified when TradeMaker’s trading ideas are published by the appearance of a yellow light bulb icon on the TradeBoards, Charts, Chat and Instrument Selector. Once the trade idea has been acknowledged by the user, the TradeMaker light bulb will disappear until another idea is published on the instrument.

If clicked, the light bulb icon launches the TradeMaker module, which contains a description of the idea, a chart image displaying the entry order, profit target and stop-loss levels in a pre populated order ticket.

The user may amend the account, volume and order prices according to personal preferences. Once the user has taken the TradeMaker idea, the related orders, including the entry, target and stop, will be displayed on the relevant instrument’s chart.

The open orders module will also display the TradeMaker icon and link related orders together to efficiently track orders associated with each trade idea.
