To actively use Guidants, you need to be a BasicMember, which is free. This will enable you to use the most important of all of Guidants’ functionalities (e.g. to trade, save charts, desktops, watch lists and write comments). With Guidiants PRO you have a few added benefits, such as increased storage capacities, access to additional widgets, and more.
The Guidants Market is the central page, from where you can load a widget or a desktop. You can find there, as well as on our Guidants User Guide page, a review of all widgets and the different pre-set Desktops with short descriptions (detailed descriptions of all widgets can be found in our Guidants User Guide).
Guidants is designed for the following browsers: Google Chrome, minimum Internet Explorer 9, Mozilla Firefox and Safari. In order to guarantee proper functioning of the platform, please make sure that you have the latest version of your browser installed.
  • Click on the icon showing the small monitor in the top menu bar. This will open a new, blank desktop.
  • Now click the Market button to open the Guidants Market . The Guidants Market menu is located on the left side.
  • Click on Widget to get an overview of all widgets.
  • Now select those widgets which you want to load onto your desktop. To do this, click the plus (+) sign. Repeat this process for each widget you want to load.
  • For some widgets you still need to determine the value to be displayed in the widget. Just click on the menu bar (in the upper left corner of the desired widget) and then on Select Instrument (Instrument wählen) . This opens an input window, into which you enter the desired value or its initial letter.
After you have loaded your desired widgets on your Desktop, you can connect them by grouping them into a set. To do this choose the same colour in the lower left corner of each widget. If you want to have more than one colour-coded set please use another colour for your next group of connected widgets. Now, by clicking on a specific topic or instruments within a set, you will automatically see the related topic/instrument in the connected widgets.

If you want widgets to remain connected but only in one direction (i.e. to send data, but not to receive any), select Widget from the action menu, then choose Connect with Set (mit Set verbinden) , followed by Receive Data (Daten empfangen) . Note: Some widgets (such as charts) can receive data from others, but cannot send data.

All your own customised Desktops are stored in the sidebar under the screen icon. Click on the desired Desktop to open it.
No, this is not possible as the colour of the chart adjusts automatically to either the light or the dark theme of Guidants. However, it is possible to create a standard template for the chart.
