To access the Product Search window, select the magnifying glass icon found to the top left of the screen in the top menu bar. When you access the Product Search window you will have two search functions available. You can either use the Category Search, Text Search or a combination of the two. With the ability to use these search methods, this allows for greater flexibility.
The top section of the Product Search will allow you to search for products by category. Below the category search section, you will find the text search field. This will allow you to search for products by name. The product search results will be displayed below the text search field.
To use the category search, firstly select an Asset Type from the 1st column. All our products are categorised by asset and will be found under one of these selections. Once you have selected an Asset Type, you will be presented with further options in the 2nd column. Some Asset Types have 3rd and 4thcolumns so that you can narrow your search down even further.
A key feature of the category search is that you do not need to search in column order; for example you will be able to select ‘Single Shares’ in the 1st column, ‘All’ in the 2nd column and then ‘Banks’ in the 3rdcolumn. This will allow you to view all banking single shares that we offer in all available countries. To narrow down the results, you could then select a country in the 2nd column. This will then display relevant banking single shares for that country. To reset your search, just select ‘All’ in the 1st column.
To find a product by name, start typing in the ‘Text’ field. You will be able to find products by their name or product code. You do not need to input the full product name, just type the first few letters and the results will filter accordingly. To reset your search, just delete the text you have entered.
Category and Text Search
The Product Search also allows you to search using a combination of both the Category and Text searches. Using single shares as an example, if you did not know what type of share the product you are looking for is, but you do know the country it is based, you will be able to narrow the search down using the text field. Using this method allows you to narrow your search down to locate the products that you wish to trade.
Once you have searched for the specific product several options will be available to you. By hovering your mouse over the specific product row, four options will become available to you. You will be able add the product to your currently active watchlist, view the product information and open a buy or sell deal ticket to place a trade or order. If you click the underlined product name in the product search window, you will also be able to access the Product Information.
