Symphony chat integration

Open Symphony in the terminal

We now have support for accessing the Symphony messaging service from the terminal.

In order to access it you need the following access in web admin: Infront - Symphony Chat Client (Public, my.symphony.com)

The Symphony secure messaging can be accessed in the Infront terminal directly from the main menu or simply by just start typing Symphony in the search field:

Share window to chat

All windows and other interesting observations made and found in an Infront terminal can be shared with your Symphony contacts by using the seamless Share to Chat feature which can be found in the tool bar menu on all windows in the terminal.

That function will immediately share a URL together with a cash tag and last change in % if the market is open for trading.

If the user on the receiving end has the Infront Terminal installed, hitting that link will open up the shared window in his Infront terminal. If the receiver is not an infront user he will be taken to the website shown below which lets him view the shared window and also sign up for a free trial of Infront.

Open company overview from chat

It is also possible to share a cashtag like $ERICB from a Symphony chat window to the Infront terminal by highlighting the cashtag and drag & drop it into the Infront terminal which then opens up a detailed company overview of that specific instrument, displayed in the image below.

For now only selected web-based services will use Chromium. Over time more services and the Display | Browser command will be certified and moved to Chromium.

New Chart studies

Pivot Points

Pivot Points is a new technical study found in the Technical menu options in Chart windows.

A pivot point is a technical analysis indicator used to determine the overall trend of the market over different time frames.

The pivot point itself is simply the average of the high, low and closing prices from the previous trading day. On the subsequent day, trading above the pivot point is thought to indicate ongoing bullish sentiment, while trading below the pivot point indicates bearish sentiment.

Yesterday's High, Low, Open, Close lines

These new studies are available in intraday charts and show horizontal lines for the previous day's High, Low, Open and Close prices, respectively.

Other improvements

Support RTD links for historical prices, splits and dividends

Note: A special access is needed to enable this
