Order Management

Manage all of your orders in one location. The console contains an order management panel that displays all outstanding orders. From here you can create new orders, adjust or cancel existing orders.

Order Presets

Streamline your order entry by configuring commonly used order sizes, increments and stops. Presets can be adjusted for instrument types as well as specifically for an instrument.



Workspaces may be used to separate different brokerage accounts. Each workspace instance contains its own local database instance that stores all information related to that workspace. This includes the following:

  • Instrument Data: An Instrument represents a specific stock, futures contract, option, index, forex pair etc. Specific information related to each instrument is stored locally. The exact type of information stored is dependent on the broker and the type of instrument. Instrument Organizer state is also stored in the workspace. This includes all instrument folders, their configuration state and the instruments that they contain.

  • Chart Data: Chart data downloaded from your data service is cached locally to improve the performance and enable access to your charts when the data service is not available. Data is stored in the following bar sizes: 1 Minute, 5 Minute, 30 Minute, 1 Day

  • Analysis Files: Charts are used to display historical and real time data for a specific instrument as well as the analysis (eg studies, markup, trend lines, commentary etc) that you have created. Analysis data is saved in the workspace and associated with the given instrument. This information may be exported in XML format and shared with other MotiveWave users.

  • Window State Information: When the MotiveWave application is closed, the size and position of the console and all open charts is saved within the workspace. The next time you open this workspace all windows will be restored to the last known state.

  • Configuration Data: Configuration data includes account connection information (passwords are NOT stored), theme settings, order presets etc.



MotiveWave themes may be used to configure an appearance to suit your style and taste. There are two aspects to configuring a theme: Window Theme and Chart Theme.

chart theme

The Window Theme affects the style of all windows and dialogs. This includes the window decorations (title bar, menu bar, tool bar, status bar etc) as well as the menu styles, backgrounds and gradients.

The Chart Theme affects the style of the chart area. This includes the background, button, bar colors and default colors for text, lines and fill.
