Interactive Brokers Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:IBKR) has released its May IB Communiqué to inform clients worldwide about the latest enhancements to its Trader Workstation platform (TWS).
Adaptive Algo Order Type – Price Improvement or Fast Fill? Now you can have both. Marketable orders generally result in a fast fill. Non-marketable orders may deliver a better price, but may take a long time to execute and may not even get filled. Enter the Adaptive Algo, the newest member of our growing IB Algo family. The Adaptive Algo aims to deliver the best of both worlds. By adapting to market conditions, it attempts to achieve the fastest fill at the best all-in price.
Integration of External Accounts – PortfolioAnalyst is an easy-to-use online performance analysis and reporting tool. Now you can use PortfolioAnalyst to see the current performance of all of your financial accounts, including your investment, checking, savings, annuity, incentive plan and credit card accounts held at financial institutions outside of Interactive Brokers.
Portfolio Builder – Portfolio Builder allows you to create and invest in custom-designed strategies and then track their performance in your existing portfolio.
Bloomberg TV Added to TWS – Our robust, real-time Mosaic news panel just got better. We now offer a Bloomberg TV feed that brings you live, streaming news from one of the world’s most trusted sources for financial news and market information.
Apple Watch – It’s never been easier to check your IB account activity. Now configurable as an Apple Watch Glance, you can check key account metrics such as Net Liquidation, Orders and Trades, Excess Liquidity and your Current Positions with a glance at your wrist.
New Online API Documentation – Our new online API documentation hosted on GitHub is full of benefits for clients who want to use our API.
