The Vertical Price Page document shows symbols in columns and fields in rows (the data is transposed compared to "classic" price pages). They offer the same functionality as "classic" price pages (only with columns / rows reversed), with the following exceptions: No sorting functionalities, no headers and sheets, no VWAP, no column freezing, no support for chain symbols.
Each column holds a symbol
The columns of a vertical price page each hold one symbol and its data.
Each column has a so-called column header on the top. When you click on a column header, you select the whole symbol and can then for example move it, change it or delete it.
The column header also shows which column is active at the moment: The active column 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 vertical price page in linked documents (charts, time and sales, news, market depth, options matrix and quick quote).
Each row holds a data field
The data that belongs to one symbol is organized in rows. The header of the row shows the name of the data field that is displayed in this row. You can choose which row should be displayed in a vertical price page.
You can assign an update style to some rows, 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 row.
The data inside the row is organized in single cells. Each cell holds the a single value for a specific symbol.
Studies and expressions (formulas) in vertical 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 vertical 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 vertical price page.
News Flash columns
You can show the latest related news stories for a symbol in a price page. The News Flash button displays the number of recent news stories; the News Headline column displays the latest headline.
Adapt the appearance of a vertical price page to your needs
You can change the appearance and color of the grid lines of a vertical price page, the font of the vertical price page texts, the color of the text and the background color of the vertical price page.
