Platform trading tools

Whether you’re spread betting or trading CFDs, Next Generation provides a number of platform trading tools such as client sentiment charts and pattern recognition to help you analyse the markets and identify potential trading opportunities.

Client sentiment

Our client sentiment feature​ shows you the percentage of PLUNGES clients who have bought versus the percentage who have sold on a particular product, so you can gain an understanding of other clients' expectations. You can also see the monetary value of these positions as a percentage.

'All' and 'Top' client data

You can choose to view data for ’All Clients’ with an open position in a product, or filter out the noise by switching to the 'Top Clients’ view to see data from only top clients who have made an overall profit* on their account over the last three months.

Updated every minute

Our client sentiment analysis data is updated every minute, meaning these valuable insights are based on almost real-time information. This is especially useful during volatile periods when market prices can change rapidly.

See sentiment changes

Compare the up-to-the-minute sentiment (illustrated by the wide outer circle in the client sentiment chart above) with the figure at 10pm (UK time) the previous day (inner circle) to see recent changes in client trading.

Get trade ideas

Use the 'Also being Traded' section as a source of trading ideas. It shows which other products are being traded by clients that are currently trading the product you're viewing.

Multiple layouts

Our range of platform trading tools include multiple layouts, which enable you to create and save up to five different trading layouts within the platform. This gives you a much larger trading dashboard and lets you use the space more efficiently. Switch between layouts quickly and easily via the quick links in the top navigation toolbar.

Pattern recognition scanner

Pattern recognition scanner is another feature of our platform trading tools. Scan over 120 of our most popular products every 15 minutes for emerging and completed chart trading patterns such as wedges, channels and head and shoulders formations. Set up automatic alerts so you're notified of technical trade set-ups and potential trading opportunities**.

Price projection box

When patterns complete, a price projection box is generated using technical analysis measuring techniques to highlight where the price action could go on the instrument's chart. You can use the inbuilt backtesting tool to measure the historical performance of each pattern and see how frequently price has hit the projection box.

Powerful trading wherever you are

Module linking

This feature allows you to group different modules together, so that when you change the product shown in one module, all of the other grouped modules will automatically update to show the new product. You can link your watchlists to Reuters market news, client sentiment, charts and order tickets to quickly analyse your favourite products and place trades.
