​Trade button colours for Stocks, Stock CFDs, Futures and ETOs

In SaxoTrader, the trade buttons for Stocks, Stock CFDs, Futures and ETOs currently use the following colours to indicate market status:

  • Yellow – live prices and market is open
  • Purple – delayed prices or market is closed


From 1 December 2016, trade buttons for these instruments will be aligned with the new Order Driven Execution FX/CFD colour conventions and the TraderGO platform as follows:

  • Red/Blue – live prices and market is open
  • Grey – delayed prices or market is closed


Alternative trade button colours

On 1 December, a more neutral blue trade button colour will be available as an alternative to the bright red/blue colours in SaxoTrader. The trade buttons colours will be red/blue by default, but you can switch to the alternative colours from Options -> Colors.
