The Traders Clock

By April 26, 2019August 9th, 2019Tech, Trading

The Traders Clock – for Windows

This is a multiple time zone, floating transparent digital clock, designed for traders. It is easy to place over the top of charts, thus needing no screen space of it’s own. It pre-warns of important news events expected to affect the markets we trade and will advise  you of the daily/weekly economic calendar events. It is reasonably customisable and you should read the notes in the readme to configure the clock for your time zones etc. Out of the box, it is configure with default/demo settings for GMT.

What this does…

Err, tells you the time, and warns of any upcoming news events…  Oh, yeah, there is also an activity timer to tell you to get up and move your butt once in a while. It’s really not good to sit for too long, you know…  You can turn it off or change the timing, if you wish.

2019.05.09 Small update to fix issue where release version had the news filter empty. You might need to right click and set the news filter for news warnings to start showing…  Also changed to multiple news events at the same time are handled better.

None yet. I’ve been running this myself for quite some time.
