The J-Trader platform offers a wealth of features for the futures and options trader. In this guide we have looked under the hood and covered many of the important tools within the platform that can help provide an edge in the market to both the novice and experienced trader. For example, for short-term traders features such as single-click trading, sound alerts, use of the DOM and the flatten and reverse buttons are all extremely useful. Action on Mouse Down and the ability to buy/sell the entire bid/offer volume with a single click are lesser known and advantageous features uncovered when digging deeper into the platform settings.

Advanced order types such as trailing stops, brackets and OCOs empower swing traders who have a clear strategy in mind but do not want to be glued to the screen nonstop. Price alerts are another important tool that assist the trader in staying abreast of important market moves while freeing up their attention.

Advanced features such as spread trading strategies and options trading draw from the core of Patsystems technology and further compliment the offerings of this versatile platform.
