cTrader releases Desktop 3.8 Beta
Cyprus based trading platform developer Spotware has sent a note to clients and to traders using its popular cTrader platform that cTrader Desktop version 3.8 has been released on Beta.
cTrader Desktop 3.8 will be released to brokers in the near future, but in the meantime traders can try all the new features out on Beta.
The company said that this version comprises highly-requested drawing features, such as the ability to lock, hide, duplicate using the “Ctrl” key and further customise drawings. Additionally, traders’ accounts can now be hidden, an additional language is available and 8 more indicators have been added in the platform’s built-in indicators library.
Last, there are further improvements and additions to cTrader Automate’s API.
Some of the new or improved features of version 3.8 include:
A new window has been added, allowing you to manage drawings and indicators on a chart. You can search and see your drawings per symbol, while charts can also be scrolled to selected drawings.
Once a drawing is placed on the chart, its position can now be locked in order to prevent accidental mouse interactions.
Any drawing can now be temporarily hidden using the Hide/Show toggle button in Object Manager.
Hide All Drawings
The “Hide All Drawings” button allows you to quickly hide all drawings on the chart, in order to see a clear price picture or create a new drawing without any visual obstacles.
Ctrl + Drag to Duplicate Chart Drawings
Drawings can be duplicated very easily, by simply dragging any interactive drawing with the “Ctrl” key pressed to create its copy.
New Settings for Text Drawing
Text drawings on a chart can be further customised, by specifying their font size and text style (bold, italic, underline).
Accounts can be hidden using a new button. Hidden accounts will be placed in a “Hidden Accounts” sub menu, where they can still be used or made visible again.
The platform is now available in the Malay language.
New Built-in Indicators
The following new built-in indicators have been added: Hull Moving Average, Average Directional Movement Index Rating (ADXR), Alligator, Supertrend, Cyber Cycle, Polynomial Regression Channels, Center Of Gravity, Fractals.
Changes in Snap to Price While Drawing
Snap to price option has been removed from the drawings context menu. Drawings will now be snapped to price by default. You can prevent snapping to price, by holding the “Shift” key while drawing. Vertical lines and icons can also be placed between bars the same way, with the “Shift” key pressed.
Changes in cTrader Automate API
New properties IsLocked and IsHidden are now available for all chart objects. Additionally, the following new properties for ChartText have been added: FontSize, IsBold , IsItalic, and IsUnderlined. Last, there are 8 new built-in indicators available via API.
