It also happens to be loaded with features. When we built IQ,
we made a wish list of everything a trader needs, plus some
really cool extras. Then we proceeded to put a check-mark

is amazing: expanded routes, expanded market depth, more ECNs,

data how you want, from trendlines all the way up to Fibonacci
arcs, fans, retracements and extensions. Construct your chart
for any interval you like, and then set the display for
candlesticks, lines, bars or mountains. Whatever your visual
cues, the indications you watch to trigger a trade, we’ve
polished and perfected them. Think of it as technical analysis,
