Risks tab

We’ve added the Risks tab in the Position manager. Now the tab displays only one parameter – the total number of underlying contracts to be settled if options in the money are expired right now. In the future, we plan to add several strategy parameters: maximum possible profit and loss, probabilities of profit or loss, and other useful parameters.

An alternative way to copy a strategy

Prior to this update, when copying a strategy, positions were copied as fills. For each position in the initial strategy, a position was created in the new strategy. Under each position, there was only one fill. The fill price was equal to the initial position opening price, and the fill size was equal to the initial position size. At the same time, the fills that formed the initial position were not copied.

We have added the ability to copy the strategy with all fills:

For the copied fills, the Manual type will be set. The Exchange ID will be replaced.

In the new version, you can bind the strategy charts form and the active strategy.

Binding Chart form and Position Manager

Click the Bind button. Now, when switching between strategies in the Position Manager, the charts will be automatically redrawn. The price range and zoom are saved separately for each strategy.

P&L chart taking the commission into account

Instructions on how to set a commission are provided in the documentation.

Adding contracts to the Market maker

In the new version, you can add contracts to the market maker in an additional way: drag a position or strategy from the Position manager and drop it into the the market maker setting form. Thus, a position contract will be created in the form.
