Tradovate Release Notes

Release notes for each version of Tradovate:

Version 1.171027.0 (10/28/2017)

  • Added: Chart Advanced Settings.  We’re in the process of making a number up updates to the chart many of which have been driven by customer requests and feedback.  Some additional advanced settings can now be managed on each chart through a settings menu.  With this update you will now be able to manage:
    • Global cursor.  In this latest release, in the Chart Advanced Settings modal, you will have the option to set a global cursor “on” for individual charts.  When this is turned on each chart will mirror the cursor position in the chart the cursor is currently moving in.
    • Continuously Autofit Chart.  One of the new configurations we’re introducing is the option to continuously autofit the chart.  As you know the chart today can be scrolled and zoomed but does not autofit the contents to the plot area.  The user can do this manually by selecting the option in the charts settings menu or by double-clicking the chart price axis.  In this latest release, in the Chart Advanced Settings modal, you will have 3 options:
      • Off – The default behavior of the chart
      • On – When selected all of the chart contents (bars and indicators) will autofit after scrolling/zooming
      • Bars Only – When selected the chart bars (only) will autofit after scrolling / zooming
  • Added: Chart.  Lower indicators will now show a label with the indicator name
  • Bugfixes

Version 1.171020.0 (10/21/2017)

  • Added: DOM Advanced Settings.  We’ve made a number up updates to the DOM many of which have been driven by customer requests and feedback.  Some additional advanced settings can now be managed on each DOM through a settings menu.  You will now be able to manage:
    • Show Bid/Ask Histogram.  Now you can show/hide the green and red histogram on the DOM
    • PNL in Ticks.  You can toggle the display of the P/L on the DOM between ticks or $
    • Show Estimated P/L.  When you enable this settings an estimated P/L column will display on the DOM
    • Show Chart Indicators.  When you enable this setting any indicators on visible charts of the same contract as your DOM (in the same window) will show at the price level on your DOM.  You can view more details about this feature in our Community Forum by visiting this post
    • Show Histogram Values.  You can show/hide the numbers that overlay the DOM’s daily histogram.  The histogram has also been changed to anchor to the right edge of the cell (rather then the left edge)
    • Order Type Coloring.  Now Working and Suspended orders’ cells are highlighted on the DOM.  Under the Advanced settings you can set which colors you would like to apply for highlighting.
  • Updated: DOM.  Cancelling and modifying orders has been updated.  To modify the price of an order, you can now click/drag and area of the cell (except for the [X]).  Previously you needed to click drag the drag handle to move the order in the ladder.  To cancel an order, click on the [X]
  • Updated: DOM.  Last price is now highlighted for better visibility.
  • Updated: DOM.  Position Indicator resized larger for better visibility.
  • Added: Exchange Traded Spreads.  Exchange traded spreads are now available on Tradovate.  A new Spread Matrix module has been added to the Workspace Manager.  The Spread Matrix will allow you to see all the spreads for a Product>Spread type combination (ES Reverse Calendar Spread, for example).  You can view more details on our Community Forum.  View the post here

Version 1.171006.0 (10/08/2017)

  • Updated: Login.  Now on the Login Screen users will select whether they want to login into Simulation/Demo or to the Live environment.  If you have a demo (or if you have a Live account and would like to trade your simulation account) simply choose to “Login to Simulation Environment”.  If you would like to trade your live account(s) simply choose to “Login to Live Environment”
  • Added: Charts.  With this release we introduce a community area for sharing your custom indicators.  This can be accessed on the Code Editor module under the “Community” menu.  In this area, you can share indicators you have developed with other Tradovate users.  Users will be able to see the number of installs of shared indicators, review the underlying JS code, install indicators or remove indicators they have installed from the community.  You can view more information on this in our community section: View the Post Here or in our FAQs .
  • Updated: Performance Report.  The performance report will now display full screen width allowing for more performance metrics to be viewed at once.
  • Updated: DOM. To “declutter” the DOM display we have removed the “High” and “Low” labels from the DOM.  Daily High and Low levels are still shown through the green and red lines.
