More Details and How to Access the New Features

Recenter all HOTs quickly

Whenever you have more than one HOT on a page, a button will appear in the left bar to center all of the HOTs on the page. Additionally, CTRL + click on any HOT reset button will reset all HOTs on the page.


Positions by Commodity view

A new widget called "Positions by Commodity"displays positions grouped by commodity with columns for each month/year contract. This makes it easy for curve traders or anyone holding positions for a commodity across different months to see their positions.

Label row in QSS and SST

You can enter text to create a row as a separator to help visually separate symbols in the QSS and SST.

When in symbol entry, use an apostrophe ' to tell the system you want to display text instead of a symbol. Then right-click and select a color to highlight the cell for additional highlight.
