Interactive Brokers rolls out Version 0.03 of IBKR Desktop platform
Electronic trading major Interactive Brokers has rolled out Version 0.03 of the recently introduced IBKR Desktop platform.
Version 0.03 of IBKR Desktop comes equipped with multi-chart mode, re-imagined news & research, and column customization.
Traders can choose a multi-chart layout to view multiple charts on the same page. Modify “sync” settings to use the same or different symbol, interval, crosshair display, time and date range. You can view up to eight charts at a time. Indicators, drawings and other overlays are applied to the active (selected) chart.
. To open charts, click the Quote icon in the left panel, than click the Charts tab.
Phase 1 of IBKR’s column customization development lets you add, remove and rearrange columns on your Watchlists, Portfolio, and Option Chains. Click the gear icon to manage columns.
- Use the “+” in Available Columns to move a column to the Selected Columns section.
- Use the “-” in Selected Columns to remove a column from the view.
- Click, hold and drag the three horizontal lines in Selected Columns to rearrange.
Earlier this year, the broker introduced IBKR Desktop, its new platform built from the ground up using a more modern UI framework that provides simplified navigation. Designed to provide the perfect alternative for retail clients who prefer a more lightweight platform, IBKR Desktop includes many of the same features as TWS and also runs as a standalone desktop application.
