I just don’t know. Is it because I have not been trading for quite sometime or is it a new feature that just came up today. Again after going through my FirstMetroSec online brokerage account I stumbled to this new feature under the TRADING section
To tell you the truth it is like my very own Stock Computation Tool which you can find in my RESOURCES Tab. It is basically a computation tool to let you know how much will be your cash outlay or cash proceed from your buy/sell stock transaction.
A pop out window will open with two box for buying and selling transaction. Fill in the appropriate fields and press enter to calculate.
Other fields will be automatically populated/filled upon pressing enter. Though there is a “Place This Buy Order” and “Place This Sell Order” below doesn’t seem to work during offline or it is still not yet activated.
Well at least this feature will guide you in your buy or sell trades. The ability how much you are really paying or receiving gives you a clearer picture of your day-to-day trading. Yes this feature is not yet perfect(I hope FirstMetroSec will make a one pager platform like that of other online stock broker) but at least we are seeing improvements .
