The MarketColor Grid is the starting point to quickly assess the technical condition of a new trade session, the JSDesktop renders our market state MarketColor Bias (MCB) indicator using a proprietary grid layout that reveals the opportunity landscape across a large number of markets at a glance. Using this method a trader can quickly evaluate the technical conditions of many markets and focus on the ones that align with their trade plan and offer the best profit opportunities for the session. For traders that trade in several market sectors multiple grids for each market sector can be configured.
JSDesktop MarketColor Grid
Market Cells. An individual market is represented by a cell within the grid. The background color, text color, text size, along with the textual descriptions in the corners of each cell are all used to describe the technical conditions of that specific market. A context sensitive “?” HELP built into the application provides users with the ability to easily understand the meaning of these graphic indicators.

A pull-down box located above the MarketColor Grid is used to select the desired indicator and change what the data the grid is displaying.
