  7. Added password recovery link. An account password can only be restored via the relevant broker. The link shows the broker's contact details.

  8. Added ability to share a link to an channel.

    Share a link to your channel through the app

  9. Improved user experience when connecting to an account with trading restrictions.

    Trading can be limited for various reasons: investor mode connection; a trading agreement has not been accepted; broker verification has not been completed and others. Previously, the reason for the unavailability of trading functions was not explained.

    Now, if trading is restricted, the order placing button in the Trade section will be grayed out. When pressed, it will show the relevant information and recommendations.

  10. Improved workflow with SSL certificates which are used for advanced authentication.

    Now, when the user connects to an account with advanced authentication, the app will show a brief description of the required actions.

    Improved work with SSL certificates

    A certificate can be imported from a PFX file. Save the necessary file in the Files app and then use the import function in the start dialog.

    It has also become possible to import certificates to files, which enables the use of certificates on other devices. To do this, go to Settings \ Certificates and select "Export" in the certificate menu.

  11. Construction of price charts has been transferred to Metal, which is the latest-generation graphics API used in Apple devices. This significantly increases the chart, indicator and object rendering performance.
  12. Fixed substitution of Stop Loss and Take Profit levels in the Depth of Market. For FIFO accounts, stop levels will be automatically set in accordance with the stop levels of existing open positions for the same instrument. This process is required to comply with the FIFO rule.
  13. Fixed requoting. When a requote is returned, the user is given a short time to accept or to decline the new prices. If no action is taken within the required time frame, the request is automatically rejected and the requote window is automatically closed.
  14. Fixed display of time in the Chart section when using the dark interface theme.
