Opening Widgets from the Market Grid

In the Market Grid, you can open a widget as one of the following:

  • a stand-alone widget
  • a linked widget

Using a stand-alone widget

A stand-alone widget is populated with market data for an instrument selected in the Market Grid.

To use a stand-alone widget:

  1. Right-click on an instrument row and select Open to show a list of widgets that can be opened from the Market Grid.

  2. Click on a widget (e.g., Chart) to select it.

    The widget opens and is seeded with market data for the selected instrument.

Using a linked widget

A linked widget is populated with market data for a selected instrument, but updates automatically when you select other instruments in the Market Grid.

To use a linked widget:

  1. Right-click on an instrument row and select Launch linked... to show a list of widgets that can be linked to the Market Grid.

  2. Click on a widget (e.g., Time & Sales) to select it.

    The linked widget opens with a yellow border.

  3. In the Market Grid, click a different instrument (e.g., CL Feb17) to select it.

    The linked widget (e.g., Time & Sales) now contains the market data for the selected instrument.
