We are slowly building in new tools to help you with your trading. The latest tool to be added is Price Feed which allows you to view a live update of what price is doing and also set key levels to be notified by SMS.
To find this tool, within the control panel there is a drop down in the top navigation called “Toolbox” – click this and find the Price Feed toolbox.
We have moved Simpletrader.net across to SSL. You can now only access the site from https (it will automatically redirect you if you try any other method). We are strong believers in keeping information as safe as it can be, and as such this is 1 of the small migrations we are doing over the next few months to increase security for users.
What SSL means for you?
SSL creates a secure connection between the user and our servers so that data that is transferred between the 2 parties is completely secure.
We have added a new module that we’ve named “Layer2”. After the recent issues seen with Million Dollar Master having his account drained from an external source we are taking security very seriously and building some new features to help protect accounts even further.
Layer2 does checks with your IP location and will prompt you to enter a few security questions if it feels you are logging in from a new location or public place.
This is totally optional, and you can enable this by clicking Layer2 inside your portal (top right). Any problems please just let support know.
After a long weekend we have done extensive updates to the entire network.
– No VPS had any downtime out of the 150 that were serviced
– EA and DC have had some updates applied to the servers that run them and these are all back online since 7:30pm GMT
– We have added additional network database nodes to handle an increase in overall traffic. We can now hold approx 500% more load than previously 🙂 Onwards to the future.
This weekend (Saturday 19th October 2013) between 10:00 GMT – 23:00 GMT we have a maintenance window which is going to effect both the VPS platform and Simpletrader network.
The VPS platform will only be effecting customers on nodes:
All customers on these nodes have already been informed via email. We do not expect the VPS to require rebooting however there is a chance of this so please check your VPS on Sunday to make sure all required services are booted.
The Simpletrader maintenance will simply disable services connected to Direct Connect and EA Servers while we do maintenance to our database cluster. This will not effect anyone and is being done to enhance our overall network.
Welcome to our newest Technician Daniel Fukuda.
Daniel has a great background in IT and will be a great addition to the team being able to jump straight into helping with the technical side of the Simpletrader and VPS platform. I’m sure a lot of you will meet Daniel on the support desk so give him a warm welcome 🙂
We are shortly to release an API for vendors to start integrating their own websites with Simpletrader. More information on this will be released in the coming weeks, but it will be a REST API with ability to pull basic information with an API ID/Key which we provide.
If you’d like to beta test it, please just get in touch with support.
