Area Charts to allow traders to decipher general market trends
eSignal, a division of Interactive Data and a provider of financial market data, news, analytics and decision-support tools for professional and individual traders, has released eSignal 10.4, the latest upgrade to its software, giving traders additional tools to navigate the financial markets.
The company said that eSignal 10.4 includes Area Charts allowing traders to decipher general market trends when viewing multiple charts on multiple monitors. The charts offer gradation and color customization to optimize readability.
Also, included in the new features in eSignal 10.4 are the volume weighted average price (VWAP) calculator and time and sales filters. The calculator allows users to get a VWAP value when dates and times are indicated. Users can include or exclude trades of a given size by using new size filters to estimate, where trading groups are putting their money into the market. The time and sales filter allows users to locate trades based on conditions and view the search results, added the company.
According to the company, features recently added to eSignal include: trading from the chart; percentage scale; drag-and-drop; option chain improvements; and dashboard improvements.
Chuck Thompson, president of eSignal, said: This latest upgrade of the eSignal software builds upon the foundational services and extraordinary features the product has become known for. We are continually looking for ways to improve the service and quickly implement the most sought after and useful tools for our customers so they can more easily make well-educated decisions.
