Other Order Types
Alternatively, for non-marekt or limit orders, the green 'Trade'
button at the bottom right side of the screen can be used to generate
a trade ticket to submit all other valid order types accepted by
(Note: Price history, in the form of a Last Trade spreadsheet and
chart are available double-clicking the "Last" price of
the desired contract.)
If you desire to trade inter-commodity spreads, J-Trader excels
in its capacity to handle these more complex orders through the
use of a Matrix Screen.
clicking on the 'Commodity' button at the bottom of the screen you
will be able to define the commodities spreads that you want to
track. The 'Contracts' button displays a list of all the tradable
months within that commodity. Clicking on any of these months will
auto-generate your spread matrix. You can trade from the resulting
matrix in the same ways you can from the 'Hot Quotes' screen. One
additional benefit of using this matrix view is the ability to see
simultaneous Bid/Ask depth by clicking on the Month/Year value of
the commodity. Here we have clicked Dec01 for the Euro and we see
all bids and offers on our desired instrument.
Again, a limit order is just a single click away.
