Creating a Spread Chart

With a single contract displayed in an Instruments & Spreads chart, a user can create a spread by clicking the + button in the top, right-hand corner of the window. This will add a set of drop-down menus at the top of the window. The larger drop-down menu allows the user to add an operator and multiplier to each leg of the spread. If nothing is selected in this drop-down, there is an implied +1. If a +1 is displayed, the user can change it to -1 by simply clicking on the operator. The user can also change the ratio by clicking on the 1 and typing the desired multiplier. After setting the desired legs and ratios for a spread, click the refresh button to display the spread chart.
