With Symbols spread you will be able to quickly and easily view the key parameters of multiple Forex symbols on the server of your broker and to select the most suitable ones for trading. This is especially relevant when applying a certain trade algorithm on the smaller timeframes, which involves a high frequency of trades and the trade levels should be placed close to the current price.
The fact is that different brokers set different values for such values as spread and stop/limit levels. The smaller the timeframe, the greater the impact of these values to the final result of the trading. Symbols spread can be useful for each trader who considers intraday trading.
The program selects symbols according to the user-defined criteria. This list will not include symbols that are not available for trading. In addition to the time range, it is possible to use filters to specify the limit on spread value (Spread filter) and symbol name (Name filter). It is also possible to specify the data type: Bars or Real ticks. If the Bars data type is selected, it is possible to specify which timeframe is to be used for viewing the spread of deals in history.
