The securities (symbols) for which the Client Terminal gets quotes from the server are listed in the "Market Watch" window.
The data is represented in this window as a table with several fields.
The "Symbol" field contains the security name, the fields of "Bid," "Ask," and "Time" shows the corresponding prices and time of their income from the server. Values of the "Maximum" and "Minimum" fields are calculated based on price changes within a day.
The "Market Watch" window can be opened/closed by pressing accelerating keys of Ctrl+M, by the "View — Market Watch" menu command, or by pressing the button of the "Standard" toolbar.
This window enables placing market and pending orders and opening new charts. Using the right mouse button, click in the "Market Watch" window and the context menu will appear where the following commands are available:
- New Order — open the "New Order" window to prepare and place a market or a pending order for the symbol selected. At the order preparation, one can specify the Stop Loss and Take Profit levels. More details can be found in the "Positions Opening" section.
The "New Order" window can also be opened by double-clicking on the security name in the "Market Watch" window, by the "Tools — New Order" menu command, by the "Terminal — Trade — New Order" window context menu command, the New Order button of the "Standard" toolbar, or by pressing of F9;
- Chart Window — open the chart of the symbol selected. More details about working with chart windows are given in the section of the same name.
The symbol chart can also be opened by the "File — New Chart" and "Window — New Window" menu commands and by pressing the New Chart button of the "Standard" toolbar;
- Tick Chart — open the tick chart of the symbol selected. Unlike normal charts, the tick chart is located directly in the "Market Watch" window. The tick chart of the selected symbol can also be viewed by switching to the tab of the same name in the same window. The tick data comes only when the account is connected. Thus, if an account was not active for a certain period of time, the tick chart may appear empty initially. The tick data is stored separately for each server;
- Depth Of Market — open the depth of market of the symbol selected;
- Specification — open symbol parameters;
- Hide — delete (hide) the symbol from the list. To minimize the traffic, it is recommended to hide unused securities from the quotes window by this command or by pressing the "Delete" button.
Attention: If there are open positions or pending orders for the symbol, or its chart is open, the symbol cannot be deleted.
- Hide All — delete all symbols from the list. This command does not apply to securities for which there are open positions or the charts were opened in the current working session;
- Show All — show the list of all available securities. After this command has been executed, quotes will include the income for all these symbols;
- Symbols — opens the window of the same name with a list of all available symbols. Symbols are grouped in the window according to their types. The "Show Symbol" command allows to add necessary symbols to the quotes window, and that of "Hide Symbol" — to delete a symbol from it. The "Properties" window command allows to view the symbol parameters;
- Sets — open the sub-menu that manages the symbol sets. The current set of symbols can be stored in this sub-menu and delete or select from an already existing one. This is very helpful when working with securities of different types;
- Spread — show/hide column that displays spread — the difference between the Bid and Ask prices;
- High/Low — add the highest and the lowest values of the daily price to the quotes displayed;
- Time — shows the time of incoming quotes;
- Auto Arrange — automatic arranging of columns when changing the window size.
Auto Arrange can also be enabled by pressing the "A" button;
- Grid — show/hide the grid separating columns.
The grid can also be shown by pressing the "G" button;
- Popup Prices — open an additional quotes window. You can also open this window by pressing F10 on your keyboard. The list of symbols in this window is the same as that in the "Market Watch" window at the moment of the command execution. This means that changes in the symbol list in the "Market Watch" window do not influence the "Popup Prices." It is an information window, but trading operations can also be performed from it. To do so, one has to double-click with the left mouse button on the desired security. In the context menu of this window, commands allow setting up data displaying parameters, enabling the full-screen mode, or locating the window over all others.
