How do I rename or choose an alias for an algorithm?

  1. Open the Settings menu from the application toolbar
  2. Choose Algorithm aliases from the settings list
  3. Choose the appropriate broker from the drop down
  4. Enter your preferred name for the algo in the Alias column and click Save (you can edit an existing alias in the same manner)
  5. Click Reset to remove an alias
  6. Restart FlexNOW to apply these changes

In the example below, the trader wants to see “VWAP Custom” and “TWAP Custom” instead of “CUSTOM1_EMEA” and “CUSTOM2_EMEA”.
