  • Creating yield curves of fixed income instruments, such as Treasuries, swap, and money market instruments.
  • Displaying forward curves of futures contracts.
  • Creating custom portfolios, such as energy strips, Eurodollar packs, and other spreads, to view forward curves.

  • Linking yield and forward curves to a chart and scrolling back in time to analyze the yield or forward curve on particular days.

Study Following Orders
Traders can select studies from the price chart, add the studies as a colored icon displayed on the DOMTrader or the Order Ticket price ladder, and link an order to the study value.

Orders will automatically adjust as the study value changes on the chart. For example, an order could follow a moving average value. In addition, the order price can be offset from the study value.

Day Limit, Stop, and Stop Limit orders are available as well as Smart Orders, including:

  • Bracket
  • DOM-Triggered Stop
  • DOM-Triggered Stop Limit 
  • Iceberg
  • Order-Cancels-Order

Three rounding choices can be applied to the study:

  • Standard rounding method
  • Rounding to the current price
  • Rounding away from the current price

Click to Enlarge Image Condition Values on the DOM
Up to four conditions can be displayed on the DOMTrader.

When adding a condition for marking a chart or study, traders can display the condition status on the DOMTrader as a colored icon.

If a condition is true, the icon will be a solid-colored box reflecting the color marked on the chart. If a condition is false, a black line will be drawn around the icon.
