In our ongoing pursuit to provide industry-leading trading software with user-driven tools and features, the Market Watch window was recently added to NinjaTrader 8.
With the new Market Watch window, you can view a snapshot of market activity across multiple instruments simultaneously. This exciting tool can be used to quickly gauge market direction, view changes in momentum and identify trading opportunities.
Each tile displays a chart of the net change for the current session. In the top right corner of each tile, current price and net change information are listed.
Areas of trading above the prior day’s close are shaded green while areas trading below the prior day’s close are shaded red.
The Market Watch window provides a fast and efficient way to track whether a market is trading above or below yesterday’s closing price and by approximately how much. Users can quickly scan both current net change information and changes throughout the trading day.
