New article Multicurrency monitoring of trading signals (Part 4): Enhancing functionality and improving the signal search system has been published:

In this part, we expand the trading signal searching and editing system, as well as introduce the possibility to use custom indicators and add program localization. We have previously created a basic system for searching signals, but it was based on a small set of indicators and a simple set of search rules.

If there are not many symbols on a trading account, the possibility to select them implemented as a name and a checkbox next to it can be quite enough. But when working with hundreds of symbols, the application window height increases greatly (as it is scaled in accordance with the number of rows with symbols). That is why this view was replaced with a tabular form. Furthermore, if there are too many symbols, some of them will be hidden and a scroll bar will be added on the right. However, we still need checkboxes for selecting working timeframes. Therefore, we need to solve several problems:

  • Create a table to display the same symbol names with checkboxes.
  • Simplify existing checkboxes to only select working timeframes.
  • Adapt all UI changes to fit the existing algorithm selecting symbols and working timeframes for further search for trading signals.

This monitor implementation is much more convenient for tracking:

    Hi Alexander,

    thank you so much for your hard work on this amazing monitor! This feature is definitely very much needed.

    One Question:
    You have changed a few bits & parts in the EasyAndFastGUI. I assume these are your own changes, yes?


    Best regards,
    Marcel
