For example, the look and feel of the platform, can be customized through the use of GUI skins, or by saving complex workspaces. ECN2 Trader™ features a robust charting system with several visualization styles and an advanced back-testing  module which includes several strategy reports. For manual traders, the software features visual trading from the Charts, including the possibility to click and trade, or trading from the Scalper-Book, a vertical display of the market (vertical ladder view) where orders can be managed and built on a single scaled system while maintaining fully FIFO position management. For automated traders, the software features the Powerscript Language™.
