Trading 212, a brand of forex brokerage Avus Capital, said on Tuesday it has introduced a new look to the trade box, making it easier to use by adding a mini chart with instruments’ latest movements.
The mini chart has different colors that indicate whether movement is upwards or downwards. The mini chart, together with the buy and sell buttons and the amount selection, is the main component of the trade box’ Standard view.
In addition to the Standard view, the trade box also has five other modes – List view (has only the instrument name, price and buy/sell buttons), Compact view (allows for adjusting the quantity of a position), Sentiment view (which displays percentage of traders buying or selling a particular instrument), and Full view (has everything all other views have plus shows a daily move in percentage points and value and high and low for the session or day), as well as a Custom view .
Trading 212 has made another enhancement to the platform – it has added a new Instrument Details tab. It shows various details about the selected chart in a single location. The new feature allows traders to create market and pending orders and set price alerts based on information about instrument performance over different time frames.
The Trading 212 platform offers millisecond execution of all types of pending orders and access to more than 750 instruments, including a wide variety of currencies, CFDs on gold, oil, stocks and indices. It is web-based and also available as a mobile application (iOS and Android).
The platform has some unique features such as a financial charting engine ProQuant (for analyzing market trends and building own strategies) and crowdsourced news platform Tradebird (for news, investment insights, charts and price levels), both built in-house by Trading 212 and directly integrated into the trading platform.
Bulgaria-based Avus Capital operates under the brand Trader.BG in Bulgaria and Trading 212 everywhere else. It operates in more than 65 countries, including Germany, Russia, and China. The brokerage has units authorized and regulated by the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and Bulgaria’s Financial Supervision Commission (FSC), and since earlier this year by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC).
