Uncluttered Trading Interface

An efficient, no-frills platform for active traders who prioritize fast execution over fancy features that real traders never utilize in live market conditions.

Designed to keep you focused on the information and tools you need to place trades in fast moving markets.

An easy to learn layout that is ideal for beginners, while the ever-expanding list of indicators and trading tools make it a valid alternative for professionals.

Customized Trading Screen

Widget based layout allows you to customize your trading screen and build your own “Trading Hub”.

Each chart, indicator, DOM is displayed in its own widget which you can move, resize or restyle to achieve the best possible layout.

Link widgets and stay organized - changing one widget will change all the other linked items as well.
