In addition to this, I would like to know @Ironbeam if Firetip works on Mac OS? A lot of people ask, and not many platforms do.

Hey @Ironbeam, What is the difference between legacy Firetip and the new Firetip X?

Hey @tturner86 - good question.

Anyone that's used legacy Firetip will notice that there many of the widgets in Firetip X have the same names. The core tools from legacy Firetip are there, but Firetip X approaches these tools from a new angle.

Firetip X is completely formula based. Traders can use the 300+ built-in indicators and formulas, or create and edit their own. These formulas can not only be used as indicators, but can also be applied as custom order types, trade signals, or plotted to your quote board as their own cell/column/row. This includes the ability to code directly to the API from the front end trading platform. Legacy Firetip doesn't have the formulas or API capabilities that X has.

Another difference is that Firetip X uses the same code across all platforms/operating systems. You can create a workspace on the web platform, and open it on your iPhone, Android, tablet, or the desktop app and vice versa. You can even code indicators or formulas on the Android or iOS app if you really wanted to.

Firetip X will also feature the new spread builder in an upcoming release - where a user can create a new option or futures spread and submit it to the exchange to create the instrument if valid & send out an RFQ to trade it (if the spread doesn't already exist).

There are many more differences which I'm sure we will cover in future webinars on here, but these are a few of the big ones that come to mind
