You use a price page document when you want to display an overview of several symbols. A price page displays symbols in a table, which is similar to popular spreadsheets.

Note You can even export quote data from a price page to a spreadsheet software. See RTD Retrieving Real-Time Data with Excel and DDE Dynamic Data Exchange with Excel / Open Office.

Each row holds a symbol

The rows of a price page each hold one symbol and its data.

Each row has a so-called row header on the left. When you click on a row header, you select the whole symbol and can then for example move it, change it or delete it.

The row header also shows which row is active at the moment: The active row is marked with an arrow sign. This arrow is usually black. When it is red, this means that you have switched to the highlight mode. In highlight mode you can show additional data about the symbols of your price page in linked documents (charts, time and sales, news, market depth, options matrix and quick quote).

Price pages can also display chain symbols, which are symbol lists that are automatically updated on the server (for example, a list of index constituents).

Each column holds a data field

The data that belongs to one symbol is organized in columns. The header of the column shows the name of the data field that is displayed in this column. You can choose which columns should be displayed in a price page.

You can assign an update style to some columns, which means that a visual effect is displayed whenever new quotes arrive, depending on whether for example the price moved up or down. You can also define the number of decimals that is used for a column.

The data inside the columns is organized in single cells. Each cell holds the a single value for a specific symbol.

Note For delayed symbols, the number of delayed minutes is displayed in square brackets in the column Ticker. In case a symbol is currently not available to you, the text "Not authorized" will appear in the column Name.

Studies and expressions (formulas) in price pages

TeleTrader WorkStation offers a large amount of analysis tools (studies) to calculate indicators and signals. All available TeleTrader studies that can be shown on a chart, including custom studies that you wrote yourself, can also be shown in a price page.

For less complicated calculations, or calculations that need to take into account fields that are only shown in a price page (such as fundamental data), you can also use so-called price page expressions. Those are mathematical calculations that use simple formulas to calculate a result of the values already visible on your price page.

For price pages, three additional standard templates are available. They show the data in a more condensed way.

My Market Watch

Last & Net Change

Note The possibilities to customize price page based on these templates are restricted. You can assign update styles and change the font and colors. For My Market Watch, you can also add and remove columns (data fields).
