Previous Releases

05/09/2016 - Let us walk you through it

One of the key features we’ve been looking to add for a while now is a nice tutorial through the system to help get you up and running. Well now we're pleased to announce the launch of our new tour.

Take the tour now

01/09/2016 - The dashboard is dead! Long live the dashboard!

Loved by many, misunderstood by others, the first page that loads when you visit Trading.co.uk (fondly known as the “dashboard”) has been under scruitiny since we first released.

Finally, after much deliberation, we think we have worked out what was wrong with it and hopefully you’ll love it as much as we do. Now by default the dashboard will show the companies on your watch lists:

Use the handy menu in the top right to filter the companies that are shown:

18/08/2016 - All your indexes in order

Sometimes it’s the little things in life that help you keep things in order and today’s update is no exception, now all the indexes are in alphabetical order.

Bonus feature: if you were a fan of the table view for all indexes, we’ve added a nifty little button for you on the indexes menu:

29/07/2016 - See the past, know the future

Alerts have been one of our most popular features since they were released but it was always tricky to see what had happened to the company so we’re pleased to announce the addition of the alert component which lists the alerts that have been sent for a company.

27/07/2016 - Being a know it all has never been so easy

We think you’re going to love the feature we released today - a combined news feed for your watch lists. Now you can get a single list of all the headlines and stories for the companies within any of your watchlists. Simply click the count of headlines or stories over the top of your watchlist.

15/07/2016 - Less is MORE!

We’re very aware that keeping abreast of the latest breaking headlines is critical to your daily process which is why we have condensed down the news feed for you fitting in 4 or 5 times the number of headlines that we did before!

12/07/2016 - Watching you watching me

No longer will you have to wonder whether the company is already in your watch lists or not, now the little icons at the top of the blades will let you know!

07/07/2016 - The markets never close

No longer will you get the market closed placeholder when looking at companies, instead we’ll plot the out of hours price data we have for you. As before, the grey areas on the graph represent the out of hours prices.

06/07/2016 - Show me MORE!

Knowing the 10 related companies just wasn’t enough for some of you so we’ve increased this to 50 so you can find related companies to invest in.

01/07/2016 - Executive search

Sometimes you’re not sure who someone is working for at the moment. To make it easier for you, we’ve enriched our search to allow you to search by Key Executive names, some products and services and loads more so go give it a go!

29/06/2016 - Flash! Ahhhhh

People didn’t realise that the pulse was constantly updating and changing throughout the day as chatter is happening so now we’ve made it more like a trading system price update and flash Green/Red depending of whether it’s gone Up or Down.

24/06/2016 - Keeping it short and sweet

Having the entire headline’s url on the headline list view is great if you’re a robot but not so great if you want to know which site it was from so we’ve shortened it for you. If you want to see the entire url, over over the domain and all will be revealed. Click it to go straight to the article.

22/06/2016 - Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

Stories are great but sometimes you need to know the headlines that are breaking as they’re breaking so today we’re pleased to bring you the headline view for companies. This will list all the headlines before they get combined into stories.

16/06/2016 - Don’t get heated clicking

It used to be a faff to go to a company's details from the heatmaps but now when you click on them it will open up the company details blade for you.

10/06/2016 - Same old risers same old fallers all day long

Some of you are staying on the system all day long and didn’t realise the Risers and Fallers list of companies wasn’t updating automatically. Well now it does!

08/06/2016 - Open a table of companies

Having watched a number of users using Trading.co.uk we noticed that one of the main things people do when opening an index was click the list of companies straight away so now we’ve changed the main menu so it opens the list of companies up straight away to make it even faster for you to get to the information that matters to you.

01/06/2016 - Play company top trumps

Everyone likes to compare stats and now you can compare the various company’s data on the charts so you can start to get an idea of how the company's compare

23/05/2016 - ORDER PLEASE!

We’ve re-ordered the opportunity index as you’ve been telling us what’s most important, now the “Current Pulse” heat map is the first chart you get to see followed by the stories, count of companies (as it’s always changing) and then all the other helpful charts. If you don’t like the new layout, you can always customise it and change it to your preference.

20/05/2016 - We’ve got new opportunities for you

Keeping your finger on the pulse is tricky at the best of times and we wanted a quick and simple way to see where to focus throughout the day so we built the “Opportunity Index” which the list of companies you should pay attention to.

We found it so useful internally we decided that we should share it with all you lovely users as well so here it is!

Check out the Opportunity Index now by clicking here or find it yourself in the Index menu:

18/05/2016 - The shift was shifting

Today we noticed that the shift (the coloured bit between the lines) was disappearing from the Sentiment Over Time charts when an update came through in certain instances well it will shift off no longer!

15/05/2016 - Hot Topics based on Novelty

It’s a minor change but we’ve made the hot topics size based on their novelty score instead of volume which has made it a little easier to see what the unusual words are, you can see the before and after below:

11/05/2016 - Spilt out the "Browse" menu items into "Companies" and "Sectors"

Did you struggle with finding companies when you first joined Trading.co.uk? Well you weren’t alone so we’ve split out the old “Browse” menu into two new menus:

04/05/2016 - Bugs be gone

We’ve fixed up all sorts of little niggles around the site ranging from stylistic changes to interaction issues hopefully making Trading.co.uk even better than ever for you. Don’t forget to let us know if you spot something we’ve missed.

08/04/2016 - Map the insight

We’ve made a minor tweak to the heatmap of companies to make it both easier to read and give you more insight into the underlying data. As some of the names were too long we’ve resorted to the symbols so most squares should show a name.

Bonus Feature! Now if you hover over the company’s symbol it will show you the Current Pulse, Max Pulse and Volume.

22/03/2016 - Welcome To Mega Update One

Why is it Mega you ask? Well here is some context - we've added 2 new in-memory servers making things even more zippy, added 100’s of terabytes of extra storage for all our new data points, over 500 bug fixes, 1000’s of lines of new code, tons of new features big and small, hours of late nights and early hours , and that doesn't even scrape the surface! So without further ado we present to you, based upon your feedback, the multi-update-update. Enjoy!

Keeping your finger on the pulse

For quite some time you've let us know we haven’t been making the most of pulse. So we sent our data monkeys off with a handful of peanuts to rethink how it’s displayed, and today we’ve released the latest iteration of our pulse component; hopefully giving you more insight into what’s been going on with your equity of interest.

Drum roll please... We are proud to present the updated pulse component:

New Pulse Component

So what does it all mean? While we’re updating the help section, here’s a quick rundown of what the new component:

  1. Current Pulse
  2. Pulse plotted over time since Midnight
  3. Difference of Current Pulse vs Pulse at Midnight
  4. Maximum pulse from last 24 hours

Not seen pulse before? Check out our handy introduction to pulse.

We’ve got your back - be aware of what you’ve missed.

Closed the site accidentally? We forgive you, just don’t do it again! However, there’s good news if you did! If you’re logged on, we’ll automatically load in the 20 most recent alerts to ensure you don’t miss an opportunity again.

Getting your charts in order.

Sometimes it’s the little things, but at your request we’ve moved the pulse chart higher up the page so you can track it next to price.

Nurse, I need that chart stat!

Whether you need to jump to the chart or the details of the company quickly, now you can. We’ve added a couple of handy icons to your watch lists which allow you to go straight to the detail or chart views:

Watchlist Icons

The price broke

The price when the story broke has been, well, broken in the last release. It’s back now in all it’s glory so you can see how the price has changed since the story broke, making it really simple for you to spot whether it had a positive or negative effect on the price.

Broken Breaking Price

Marty, the flux capacitors are working, we can go back in time...

One of the most requested features was quietly rolled out today, you can now go back 7 days in the past and see what we were saying.

Get started now by clicking the calendar icon in the bottom right. You’ll need to be logged in for this feature to be enabled.

Datepicker

Help, I need somebody! Help, not just anybody!

Ok, we never were any good at karaoke either but we have got a whole lot better at helping you understand our platform, and how it can help you. We’ve added a load more insights into each of the aspects of the system and have even thrown in some videos for you to take a look at.

Bonus Round! We’ve also added little ‘jump to’ icons on components that have specific help sections, you can find these in the top right of each component:

Help Links

Timezones getting out of kilter

Some of our American users were kind enough to point out there was an issue with the price over time charts falling out of alignment with the sentiment, pulse and volumetric graphs. This was a simple case of cross-timezone, UTC, GMT confusion and it’s all cleared up now and everything should now neatly line up.

Help Links

14/03/2016 - Mix it up again

Did you try and customise a blade and get an error that looked like this?

If you did, good news! We’ve sorted it so now you can change the layout of the blade to suit your needs any time day or night.

11/03/2016 - Back to the future

We had a few reports that people had been having issues going “Back” and “Forwards” on their browsers, we’ve given the Delorean a kick and our flux capacitors are operating as they should. 2015 here we come.

09/03/2016 - Wondering what the icons mean? Wonder no longer

Sometimes it’s the little things that help the most, today we have released a small improvement that adds tool tips..

07/03/2016 - Bugs squish

We’ve been listening to you and from your feedback we have been busy going through our algorithms, validating the data and squishing lots of little bugs along the way.

02/03/2016 - All shook up with timezones

Visiting the site from America? You may have noticed that some of your charts were offset by a few hours (but all still in sync like any good boy band). We’ve fixed the issue so that now all graphs are showing the same times wherever you’re visiting us from in the world.

01/03/2016 - Follow us!

We heard a few of you weren’t following us on Twitter as you didn’t know where we are, wonder no longer, follow @tradingwebsite on Twitter now or click the shiny new icon:

27/02/2016 - Get to the latest story again

Sorry, some of our users have been unable to get to the story view over the past day or so, we’ve got to the bottom of the error so you can now see the stories in all their glory again!

26/02/2016 - We’re not negative enough!

It turns out that when we rolled out our new sentiment charts the other day we didn’t let the negative vibes flow and they were getting chopped off. We’ve fixed the charts so now you get all the negative sentiment you can handle.

25/02/2016 - Get in line

Thought you were seeing things? Turns out you weren’t. Every now and again we found that the mini volumetric and sentiment charts didn’t start at the same point in time. We’ve fixed this up so now they align beautifully unlike before...

24/02/2016 - Close me please

Sometimes things go wrong and we just left you hanging with a blade open which wasn’t cool. We’ve had a play and have added a close cross so there’ll be no more of this:

24/02/2016 - Index missing icon

Did you notice that Index alerts were missing an icon? No? We did and now it’s not!

23/02/2016 - Name changer

Love lists? Love keeping all your favourite companies to hand? So do we, what we didn’t love however was the fact that we couldn’t change the name of the watchlist once it was created. We’ve just pushed a fix live that now allows you to once again name your favourite companies whether it’s FANG, Companies to Watch or just Stuff.

23/02/2016 - Errors are now pretty

Were you one of the unlucky ones to hit an error on our system? Boring wasn’t it! Well now we’re a little more inviting and helpful rather than leaving you on a somewhat blank screen.

Hopefully you’ll never see it but if you do, let us know!

22/02/2016 - We accidentally banished "meh"

Due to a minor change we made today we were rounding sentiment values of less than 1 down to 0 meaning where there was little to no difference in the sentiment we didn’t show anything:

19/02/2016 - Graphs getting a haircut

We’ve noticed a couple of the charts since we rolled them out have been getting cut off at the top of the chart, we’ve put in a fix that should correctly scale the charts now.

16/02/2016 - Welcome to the site!

Did you feel a little lost when you first came to the site? We’ve just redesigned the homepage of the site to hopefully feel a little less lost and also introduce you to the system. We’ve got more in the works but this has to be better right?

12/02/2016 - Get your finger on the pulse

We’ve added pulse to the table of companies for you so now you have no reason not to have your finger on the pulse of the entire Index at any time day or night!

10/02/2016 - SOC (Save Our Clicks)

When you’re logged out we’ve cut down on a couple of the clicks to log into the important area, all you mouse lovers can breathe a sigh of relief.

03/02/2016 - Get your things in order

01/02/2016 - Welcome aboard

We don’t like to leave you hanging when you first come to the site so we’ve improved the homepage to include a demo link to show you around the system.

26/01/2016 - Charting to new levels

You asked for it and we’ve now overhauled the charting feature on your dashboard!

Featured together on one blade, this allows users to easily see and compare the different charts, with any confusion.
