Special Features

You’re here for knowledge and research. You’re here to make money, so you probably want to jump right in. Or you can invest a few minutes to learn more about the features that AvidTrader provides to help you digest and apply new trading ideas. Then let’s start.

  • Dashboard. The first page that is displayed when you login to AvidTrader is the “Dashboard”. Links to all other areas are provided on this page, and all other pages link back to the Dashboard. If you want to “bookmark” one page on this site for easy access to everything else, it is the Dashboard.
  • My Account. You can manage your settings from the “My Account” link that is found at the top of the Dashboard. Everything from contact information and password, to chat display settings can be edited whenever you choose.
  • My Research. Whenever you find a research page that interests you, click on “Add to My Personal Research Folder” in the page’s top right corner. These pages will be added to your “My Research” page where everything you’ve selected will be just one click away. My Research also identifies when your selections were most recently updated, potentially saving you from scanning content that you’ve already read.
  • User Guide. This “User Guide” is an invaluable resource for making the most of your AvidTrader membership. Its is linked from the top of every page for easy access. Easier access is found by clicking on the various context sensitive help icons found in the research itself, to open the User Guide at the relevant page.

You can always login again from the top right corner of the site’s public pages.
