Positions

As part of an ongoing effort to help you view and manage positions with more information and flexibility, we've added several changes to the Positions and Account List widgets.

In the Positions widget you can now:
- View Margin (in it's own column) and see the impact on net available credit (the Balance column)
- Group positions by Exchange, Product or Contract, in addition to the previous grouping options of by Account or a flat view (no grouping).
- Export selected rows, or all rows, to produce comma separated (.csv) files that retain the grouped structure similar to what you see on the screen.

In the Account List widget, you can now:
- Select an account with a handy search feature and,
- Right click on parent accounts to "Select all children".

These features make the combination of an the Account List grouped alongside a Positions widget a potent navigational tool to view positions across numerous accounts.

Improvements

MD Trader

Enhanced MD Trader behavior when "only show available prices" is enabled to continue to briefly (1 second) display a blank cell when a price level is removed before compressing and adjusting the price ladder. This new behavior provides users a moment to enter an order at the correct price before all the prices move on them and it helps show quick rallies or sell-offs much more clearly. As part of this change, you can "freeze" the price ladder at any time by holding down the Shift key.
