An overview of Exante’s web platform
Exante’s web platform provides traders with a fast and convenient way to trade directly in their web browser instead of needing to download or install the trading program.This means no matter where you are, you can stay on the market edge with Exante’s intuitive and easy-to-use trading tool, which is automatically equipped with powerful charts.

In order to get started with trading financial instruments, you must first navigate to the instruments tab. This contains all the financial instruments available in Exante’s trading platform, and they are grouped by type and sorted in alphabetical order. You can immediately start typing in an Instrument’s name or ticker to narrow down the list or navigate even further to expand the nodes of the Instruments tree. You can then click on an instrument to switch it in Time and Sales, market Depth, Order and on Chart afterwards. You only need to drag and drop to add the instruments to Quote Monitor.
That said, options are not visible in the Instruments tree by default. In order to enable it, traders must visit Settings and flip the switch that says Show options to see them. The loading process may take up to several minutes depending on your internet connection speed. If the tree is updating, you will see the progress bar right about the search field.

Exante’s web trading platform lets traders visualise their financial data on the Chart, aggregate it using different time intervals, add indicators or drawings, as well as choose a chart style and set up other preferences. One aspect that makes Exante unique is that it allows for collaboration. This means it is possible to show your chart to a friend. The only thing you need to do is to copy a link right from the address bar. This shareable link features not only the instruments you are sharing but the timeframe as well.
If your friend does not have an account with Exante yet, then no need to worry. You can simply share a link to the demo chart. However, do note that the quotes in the demo are delayed for at least 30 minutes.
Exante’s Quote Monitor provides traders with real-time data quote streams. You can simply drag and drop up to 100 instruments to the Monitor in order to keep track of their dynamics. Quote Monitor collects all essential data on a trading session. This includes data on the instrument name and description, the bid/ask/mid prices and bid/ask sizes, the last quote update time, price changesin absolute and percentage terms, and quote feed status. If you are feeling overwhelmed with all the information available, simply click the gear sign at the top of a panel to choose the columns you want to see in Quote Monitor.
Time and Sales
The Time and Sales module displays trade data for a chosen instrument at a specific exchange. Every line represents tick-by-time data provided in real-time by the exchange. This includes the trade timestamp, average price, and total size. The most recent trades are always at the top, while the others are arranged by time in descending order. In case a specific instrument lacks trade data, Exante will show a warning right in the window so that traders will immediately know about it.
