Quantower trading platform

This is our first post, and by the rules of good taste, we should probably tell you about our team, product, our goals, mission and what we will do next.

In your opinion how many people we need to create a really good trading software? The answer will depend on the timing of the development, budget, as well as the experience of each team member. In our case, we have put together a fantastic twenty of real pros (I would call them madmen) with an unlimited desire to create the best trading software. You can read more info about us in the Team section.)

When you want to understand what the team is doing and what product they offer, you have to go to the About section. And what is the most common thing we see there? For example, it is about what "cool and super innovative company has created a no less cool product", which "solves all your problems in two clicks". If we wrote a similar text, it would appear as follows: “Quantower® is a modern and high-performance trading platform developed for professional and retail traders. Based on deep cooperation with individual traders, analytics and asset managers we’ve created the fully modular system which allows you to use only what you need.”

It's great! But most users will necessarily have an obvious question: "Why did you create another trading platform? Why are you better than competitors?"

We believe that quality and reliable functionality should be by default, so our goal is slightly different. It is quite simple and very similar to the development of Internet trading. Veterans of trading probably remember how brokers made trades through the phone, and at the same time, they took huge commissions from each transaction, reducing the trading advantages of each trader. But with the spread of online trading, brokers were forced to sharply reduce the number of commissions to remain competitive in the market.

If we draw an analogy, we want to motivate our competitors to provide cool functionality at an affordable (almost wasteful) price. If they do not want to do this, then we are ready to replace them and provide an excellent platform for your use.

If you do not believe us, then let me tell you what we have already done and what our plans for the future are.

First of all, the concept of our platform is very different from the others. For example, after launching the platform you will see the Command Center at the top of the screen, which will wait for your instructions. Try it in action and you will understand why it is incredibly convenient (our traders have already appreciated it).

We will not speak at length that you can customize for yourself absolutely everything - this should be by default. But we can stop on one interesting functional - Bind. It's a very simple and fun way to quickly merge any panels into one entity. For example, you can merge the Chart and Positions panel into Bind, and move this block to any place on your screen. By creating several Binds, you can later save them as your main workspace, regardless of the number of monitors.

To create our own plug-ins, modules, indicators, we made our own fully open API. In addition, you can create your connections to your brokers or data feeds. Everything is very flexible, simple and affordable!

  7. Bitfinex

At the moment we are working on connections to:

Join us, we are sure that our app will be liked by you! More details about our plans you can find in the Roadmap section. If you think that our list does not fully cover your expectations or you have other ideas how to improve our terminal, please write to us. We will consider your offer and try to implement it as soon as possible on the platform.

Attachment 2937584

4.New drawing tools

To the existing list of drawing tools, we’ve added:

  1. Up & Down Arrows. Mark important places for you on the chart
  2. Note. Just create a new note and add your thoughts. When you hover over the created marker, the written text will be displayed
  3. Text. Write all necessary notes directly on the chart
  4. Comment. Add your thoughts directly on the chart and share with your friends.
  5. Price marker. This tool allows you to place price labels directly on the chart

The full changelog is quite lengthy and mostly consists of minor bugfixes. What are your thoughts on the new features? Let us know if we missed something important you were expecting to see or throw us some ideas for future releases!

Secondly, we have prepared a detailed article on what is volume analysis and how to use it in your trading practice.

Hello traders!

In the past week, we've released a new version (1.27) with several features and improvements. Let's take look at our update.


  1. Account Performance panel

As you know, it is not enough to create a trading system and immediately launch it. On the next step, you should to test it and analyze the results to further optimization and enhancement. For this goal, we have developed a special Account Performance panel, which automatically collects the results of all executed trades and displays them in a chart view. Detailed statistics on the performance of the trading system will allow quantifying the risks and profitability.

  1. Demo trading for digital assets on any crypto exchange

Most crypto exchanges do not offer demo trading for digital currencies. This restriction forces traders to test new trading systems with real money, that increases the risk of losing capital. The developers of Quantower implemented the functionality of a trading simulation, which will allow you to test a trading system or idea without risking real money, and improve trading practice using real-time data of connected crypto exchanges. It means that a trader can trade cryptocurrencies without having a trading account with a particular broker or a crypto exchange.

  1. Keyboard Shortcuts for drawing tools

We have added Hotkey buttons for drawing tools at the request of our users. Each time traders add a new drawing to the chart, they had to go into the Drawing library menu, find it in the extensive list and add to the chart. With frequent use of drawings, this procedure is slightly tiring. Although a trader can add any drawing to his favorites list for quick selection, some users prefer to use Hotkey Buttons for this purpose. Set up a Keyboard Shortcut combination for the necessary drawing and call it immediately.
