X_TRADER 7.4's innovations include an Estimated Position in Queue (EPIQ) indicator, new supported order types including Trailing Stops and OCOs, integrated charting and analytics through X_STUDY™, single-click "Go to Market" functionality and numerous enhancements to TT's automated spreading tool, Autospreader®.
