Another key platform update has arrived cTrader. For traders who follow Spotware on a regular basis, this is no surprise. The pace of changes is very high, and the functionality is increasing exponentially. After less than three months since the last update we wrote about here, debuts cTrader 4.5 desktop version. What new have the developers prepared for users? Details below.

New on cTrader 4.5 Dekstop

With the new version, Copy Trading appeared on the cTrader Dekstop platform. cTrader Automate, on the other hand, provides a new charting mode for backtesting, the ability to calculate the amount of margin required to open a position, and more. For manual traders, the smart close functions have been improved and the tick volume indicator has been updated and much more.

Copy Trading on cTrader Desktop

Previously, the copy trading option was already available on cTrader, but only on the Web and Mobile versions. Now it has also appeared on the installation version. Thousands of strategies available for copying, smart filtering and one-click trading are ready to be used by every user of the platform.

Smart position closing

From now on, we can close some open positions by filtering them by symbol, yield or direction (buy or sell). This convenience eliminates the need to close positions one at a time or all at once.
