Investar Beta with many new exciting features

Today is the day! We are pleased to announce a new release of Investar Beta and with it many new exciting features, improvements, and even better usability.

What’s New?

Auto-SR Zone Detection

As per customer feedback, we have added a new feature “Auto-SR Zone Detection” widely also known as “Auto Supply-Demand Zone Detection”.

Supply-Demand Zones (or Support-Resistance Zones or SR Zones for short) are areas of supply/demand created in the chart. Nearby Support/Resistance lines can be clubbed together to create a Support/Resistance zone. Using S/R zones instead of S/R lines can improve the accuracy of trading immensely as it can help you to avoid false buy/sell signals as well as give better targets and stop losses.

To enable Auto SR zones, just right click on the chart as shown below:

Simply click on “Enable S/R Zones”, then you will be able to see S/R zones

Enable Auto S/R

Note: You have to Enable Auto S/R in order to use this feature.


To configure Auto-SR Zones, please do the following:

  1. Select Tools->Options from the main menu
  2. Select the Auto S/R tab and then the S/R Zones sub-tab.

Auto Trend Line support in the chart

The auto-trend line feature determines the current uptrend and down trend line and draws them.

Trend lines may also be drawn manually using the drawing tool on the charting toolbar, but with our new feature Auto Trendline feature, it not only does it automatically but also colors the trend lines based on strength (blue for strong, red for not so strong).

To enable Auto Trendline:

Step 1: To configure it, select Tools->Options option on the main menu:

enable Auto Trendline

Step 2: Select Auto Trend line tab and configure its settings

configure Auto Trend line settings

Step 3: To view Auto Trend line make sure you have checked the options for Trendlines and Click OK.

Step 4: Now, simply Right click on the Chart and click Enable Auto-Trend Line as shown below.

Enable Auto-Trend Line

and you can see the Trendlines on your selected chart.

You can now add custom timeframes to the software. Simply do the following:

  4. If you check the “Align candle grouping to market hours”, then the candles will be aligned to market hours. (e.g. for Hourly timeframe, first candle will be 9:15 am to 10:15 am instead of 9:15 am to 10:00 am, if this option is not checked.
