There are 4 things which make Figaro different to your current trading platform:
Figaro provides a wealth of market data tools, and you can use the platform's configurability to build your own preferred view from the many widgets which Figaro makes available:
Figaro provides unrivalled control over your trading activity:
You can also use the platform's powerful scripting to automate your trading - auto-generate a script for an order which you place regularly, and turn that into a custom one-click icon in the software's banner.
You can use Figaro's Data Transfer widget to copy settings between your devices, or to share content with other people.
For example, you can download a chart, send it by WhatsApp or Telegram (or email, or post it on a web forum), and other people can then upload that exact view into their own copy of Figaro.
Figaro has comprehensive scripting - even on mobile!
The platform can write scripts for you for common actions, such as placing trades or opening widgets. You can then turn these scripts into icons in the software's banner, giving you instant access to important tasks.
Software developers can go far further and write new content for the Figaro platform - chart indicators, trading algos, or whole new widgets of the software.
The web app can integrate with Microsoft Excel via a downloadable bridge, and this bridge also provides http and websocket interfaces into the web platform. You can write code in the external environment/language of your choice, such as Python or C#, and communicate with the Figaro platform to read account and price data or place trades.
It's also possible to send messages into Figaro from outside the platform, including the ability to create push notifications in the iOS and Android apps. You can create mail from any environment which can make HTTP requests - for example, an EA in MT4/MT5. It's also possible to write scripts inside Figaro which receive such mail, analyse it, and carry out automated actions.
Figaro is in a test phase, and can only currently be used to trade demo accounts, or in data-only mode.
You can connect Figaro to the following demo trading environments:
Figaro also has a data-only mode which displays indicative market prices, with no trading account or trading functionality. You can log in to data-only mode with your FX Blue username and password.
