WHAT'S DRIVING THE PRICE ACTION IN YOUR WATCHLIST?
Event flags appear next to a stock to tell you about important news. This might be breaking news, the stock going ex-dividend, dividend payments, reporting dates, bids, suspensions or triggered alarms. Flags can be configured to show forthcoming events as well. Flags will appear wherever you are looking at a stock - in a list, a portfolio or watchlist, on a chart or on the Level 2 screen.
Alpha's flags highlight results dates, news stories and ex-dividends to give you a fast heads-up on why an investment may have risen or fallen. Simply move your cursor over the flag to reveal more detail.
Here is an example of an expanded Result and Acquisition flag:
Wherever you are in Alpha, searching for an instrument couldn't be easier. Just start typing the name or code on your keyboard and Alpha will immediately initiate a search to display what you are looking for with just one click.
SWITCH BETWEEN LAYOUTS INSTANTLY
Alpha comes equipped with a range of default layouts designed for different tasks (e.g. equity or fund analysis, watchlist management, news filtering) and based on our 15-year experience of working with clients. Each layout can be customised to what you want, to suit your requirements. A toolbar with buttons for each of your layouts enables you to switch between them quickly with a single click of the mouse.
