I was wondering if there are any detailed screenshots available of the app in use, since it is now in live testing. Apologies if I’ve missed these, or the points below have already been raised elsewhere.
I’m particularly interested in how the portfolio will look. I was looking at the web interface of one of my dealing accounts today and found it wasn’t really useful or do what I wanted. It showed a stock ticker, buy price, value, and total gain / loss. However, to get further info such as a chart, daily change etc. it was 2 or more clicks away which is cumbersome and slow in a browser. I can’t imagine how this would translate to an app in any quicker format.
I’ve seen / used various mechanisms that work well, either a couple of easy switch tabs like price (price, day gain, day gain %), value (no., value, total gain) and details (chart etc.); or showing one metric like day gain, which when tapped on changes the whole list to day gain %, volume, etc.
There are various methods, so I was just hoping to see what we can expect and perhaps put in some early feedback.
Ultimately, what we expect to see is going to differ based on strategy and intent, so making it easy to switch will be crucial.
When it comes to charts, again, the ability to easily switch the timeframe being viewed and also to tap the line and see a specific time + value would be great. Similar to how the XE Currency app charts work. Two fingers on the chart to show the difference between points - that would be awesome!
I’m assuming eventually US and UK will live in the same list, though being able to look at them individually might be useful just to see total invested in $, compared to £.
