Scottrade, a leading branch-backed online investment firm, is upgrading its active trader platform, ScottradeELITE®, with new features designed to make the platform easier to use, including a new layout wizard that will allow users to easily create their own layouts in the Platform.
This upgrade, one of a series of platform upgrades in 2007, will be available after the market closes on Thursday, December 13. Improvements will be automatically downloaded when current ScottradeELITE® users log into their accounts. New ELITE users will enjoy the benefits of the upgrade when downloading the platform for the first time.
Highlights of the upgrade include:
- The Layout Assistant is a step-by-step guide that will walk users through the process of customizing the layout of the trading platform. An unlimited number of layouts and symbol lists can be saved in ScottradeELITE®.
- ScottradeNOTES ™ allows users to enter personalized notes next to any symbol in the quote grid to help users track events that may impact their watchlists.
- Save Template buttons have been added to the Quote Grid, Chart, Full Quote, Level II, TotalView, Time & Sales, and Option Chain windows, allowing changes to templates to be saved quickly and easily.
- With the new Recent Searches drop-down list, ScottradeELITE® will remember the last 10 symbols that were entered, making it easier for users to access the symbols they view most frequently.
Scottrade has upgraded its ELITE platform three to four times a year since its launch in 2004. Past upgrades include the addition of Account Linker, which allows users to view all of their accounts on one screen, and the integration of Trade-Ideas® and NASDAQ Devis TotalView®. Scottrade has several other upgrades planned for 2008.
“These upgrades are designed to make ScottradeELITE® even easier to use so active traders have quick and easy access to the information they need to monitor their accounts and the market,” said Kevin Dodson, Director of Development of products at Scottrade. “For example, the new layout wizard will allow traders to easily customize their platform to suit their trading needs. This personalization is important for active traders.
