Managing Tickers in the Watchlist
A ticker is a live price feed of an asset and contains relevant information which is continuously updated. A ‘tick’ means any change in the price of the asset.
Your tickers are stored in the Watchlist.
In TabTrader tickers are presented in the form of cards within the Watchlist. They constantly report the current price and best bid and ask prices, as well as price change and volume over the preconfigured timeframe.
Moreover, tickers display a line chart of an asset, colored according to market movement.
Tickers also show the available balance of the ticker asset.
There are three customization tools for your tickers at the top of your Watchlist:
- Tickers timeframe
Select the preferred timeframe for historical market data updates (price change, volume, price line chart) to be displayed in (1H, 24H, 7D, 30D).
- Ticker appearance
There are 4 possible shapes for your ticker’s appearance: small, compact, medium and large.
Sort the tickers in your Watchlist by the following parameters: Exchange or Pair (alphabetically), Price (up/down), Change (price % change up/ down).
Swipe down from the top of your watchlist and the customization tools will appear.
