One of the key metrics for judging whether an app is user-friendly or not is by checking how fast and easily you can find crucial information. Many of the latest features of the Angel One iOS Super App have been designed to serve exactly this purpose.
What is New?
- Addition of new indices to the Watchlist starting with FINNIFTY or Nifty Financial Services.
- Easy sorting of contracts on your Watchlist based on Expiry, Strike Price and option type (i.e. PE/CE).
- Option to filter the Open Orders & Order History pages based on the expiry date.
- Option to filter your Open Orders and Positions pages based on the asset segment i.e. Cash, F&O, Currency, Commodity and Indices.
Addition of Indices on Watchlist
It only makes sense that you should be able to check the daily movement in the price of indices just like any other scrip on your Watchlist. Therefore, from now on, you can add indices like Nifty 50, Nifty Bank, Nifty Financial Services and Sensex directly to your Watchlist and track them daily.
More indices will soon be made available for being added to your Watchlist in the coming weeks.
To add indices to your Watchlist, follow these easy steps:
- Go to the search bar.
- Type the index you want to track.
- When the index appears on the list below, click the star sign next to it to add it to your Watchlist.
While searching for an index, you may narrow down your search to only indices by choosing the Indices option next to the other options of Cash, F&O, Currency and Commodity.
This will help you avoid sifting through multiple options and futures contracts on the index and find the index directly. If you want to view further details on an index on the Watchlist, simply click it.

You can also add the indices to the top two cards on the Home page by following these steps:
- Open the Angel One Home page and check below ‘Market Today’. There you will find two indices and the change in their values since the previous day’s closing.
- Next, click on the down arrow on the right. You will see the list of available indices. Choose the preferred index by checking the box next to it, along with one more index out of the remaining three.
- Click on “SAVE,” and you will see your preferred index added to the card.
You can follow the same method to change the indices on the main cards of your Watchlist as well.
This brings us to the next new feature on the Watchlist!
Contracts Sorting on Watchlist
A user may be tracking multiple derivative contracts with the same underlying asset in the Watchlist. If these contracts are arranged alphabetically, then it becomes difficult for the user to find the one that requires urgent attention over the others.
To solve this problem, users can now sort their contracts in the Watchlist based on the following:
- Expiry Date
- Strike price and
- Option type i.e. CE/PE
Contracts with the earliest expiry dates are ranked first, and within them, they are further sorted based on their strike prices.
The contracts are sorted in a similar fashion on the Positions page as well.
Let us now take a look at similar efforts made to increase the user’s navigability in the Orders module.
Filtering Open Orders, Order History and Positions
Traders and investors with a high number of orders active at the same time often face this issue where Cash, F&O, Currency, and Commodity orders are bundled in the same list.
But this is no longer a problem on the Angel One app!
With the latest release, you can filter your Open Orders and Positions pages based on the asset segment i.e. Cash, F&O, Currency, Commodity and Indices.
This filter will appear only when more than one asset classes are part of the Open Orders or Position list.

In addition to the above filter, the expiry date can be used as a filter on the Open Orders and Order History pages.
All you have to do is go to the Open Orders or Order History page, click on the filter button and scroll down, where you will find the list of expiries. Selecting a particular expiry from this menu will filter open orders or past orders of that expiry date only. This feature is applicable across multiple segments.
Here are some of the other features that have also been introduced to improve your Angel One experience –
- MTM (Mark-to-Market) is now displayed on the Chart and Option Chain of an asset for better portfolio tracking. The MTM figure would include all your derivatives open on that asset. For example, if you are on Nifty 50 Charts, then the MTM shown would be the combined figure of all Nifty 50 Futures and Options contracts in your Position book.
- GTT (Good Till Triggered) orders can now be easily tracked under the GTT history tab. The GTT History section will show all your triggered, expired and cancelled GTT orders.
- Option chains have also seen some changes. For example, when you land on the option chain from an options contract, the Strike Price (and not the Spot Price) of that contract is now shown at the center of the screen.
- The Notification Centre has also been revamped to make it more user-friendly and clutter-free. Now, alerts, news, and announcements are easier to consume and manage.
