After you have installed MotiveWave™ and configured your workspace, the first window that you will see when opening that workspace will be the Console. The console provides access to all the features in MotiveWave™ and it is initially configured with a default layout.

The console is organized into different pages (see screenshot above; please note: pages are only available in the Professional and Ultimate editions of MotiveWave™). To access a different page, simply click on the page tab at the bottom of the console window. The default set of pages are as follows:

  1. Home – The home page contains a sample layout that has a single chart area and two spots at the bottom for watch lists.

  2. Charts – Sample layout of 6 charts

  3. Floating – Sample floating stations provide an alternative to split layouts

  4. Account – Layout containing information about your account, orders, positions and historical trades.

  5. Trade Report – Functionality to generate a report that can be filtered by account, instrument, and date

  6. Options – Sample layout containing Option Chains. Note: this page is only available on brokers that support options trading.

  7. Scan – Layout for using the scanning functionality within MotiveWave™

  8. Optimize – Contains a strategy optimizer panel for Back Testing, Optimization and Walk Forward testing of automated strategies.

The following screen shots illustrate the default set of pages in the console:
