Stocks & Commodities V. 22:12 (83-85): Product Review: Terra Nova Investor by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan
The idea of direct-access order entry has long been associated with active traders who make several trades per day. But lately, products that mimic direct-access platforms but without the bells and whistles of a fullfledged trading platform are entering the marketplace. One such product is Terra Nova Investor from Terra Nova Online. This platform is targeted to the less active equity, futures, and options trader who is interested in taking the first step into the world of direct-access trading.
Since Terra Nova Investor is a browserbased platform, it’s relatively easy to download. Once you open an account, you will receive a user name, domain, and password that will enable you to install and run the program.
Navigating through all the features this platform has to offer does take some getting used to. Basically, what you get are the most-actives, gainers, losers, to selecting the data to display. In Figure 2 you get a glimpse of the choices.
