Chart

This button is used for building charts in the ATAS platform. By default, the candlestick chart of the selected instrument is opened.


Spread Chart

This instrument is designed for spread trading (pair trading/spread trading, synthetic spread trading, hedging etc.). The main essence of this trading approach is the search for dependencies between assets followed by the display of these dependencies in the form of a line chart and the testing of deviation of these dependencies by simultaneously opening positions for two or more assets.


Tick Cluster

The calculation for this instrument is performed similarly to the Smart Tape module, but the data are presented in the form of clusters. Such an innovative approach to mapping the data makes it easy to accept all incoming information. While the tape requires looking into figures to determine order prices, everything is seen directly on the chart.



Smart Tape

Every market order can be filled by a large number of specific limited orders, this instrument groups the received ticks so that the trader sees the actual market orders in their full volume. There is also a volume-based filtering system. Now, it is possible to see what traders with different capitalization do at any time.


Spread Tape

An instrument for the visualization of volumes at each spread value.



All Prices

A counter of distribution of volumes by prices. This option allows finding levels with the maximum volume, trades, bids, asks, and deltas for an arbitrarily chosen period. These levels are generally good support and resistance.



Smart DOM

The Smart DOM module is intended for trades.
