- Adds New Forex products
Interactive Brokers Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:IBKR) has released its November IB Communiqué to inform clients worldwide about the latest enhancements to its Trader Workstation platform (TWS) and new product offerings.
IB Announces Greenwich Compliance
Interactive Brokers recently announced the launch of Greenwich Advisor Compliance Services Corp. as a new resource for experienced investors and traders wishing to start their own investment advisory firm. Greenwich Compliance professionals have regulatory and industry experience who are able to assist investment advisors trading on the IB platform with their registration and compliance needs.
New Financial Products Launched
Interactive Brokers expanded its product offerings this quarter. IB now offers Forex Contracts for Difference (CFDs). Eligible clients can also now trade Forex CFDs using IB’s FXTrader. CFDs are derivative trading instruments that offer opportunities to trade on the price movement of various financial assets.
Natural Language Interface
IB recently rolled out IBot, which lets customers easily enter commands in Trader Workstation in simple text. With IBot, users can access quotes and charts and even enter orders and trades. IB’s developers are working on more IBot enhancements, including voice recognition for mobile devices.
Now you can view sector performance at a glance. This popular tool has expanded reporting capabilities, with heat maps to show sector and symbol performance. IB also added a new color-coded bar chart to show performance by asset class.
Keep Informed with IB FYIs
Customers can keep abreast of upcoming events that could impact their investments with IB FYIs. Notifications are customized based on each customer’s trading activity and portfolio. For example, the recently released Options Exercise FYI can notify you about the last trading date for options positions you hold, so you’re always up to date on your options.
IB Feature Explorer Makes Finding Features Fast
To help people quickly locate all the tools and information IB offers, we created the IB Feature Explorer. Accessible from the home page and every menu on IB’s website, the Feature Explorer helps customers easily find information.
