IBKR Mobile for iOS 2020 Release Notes
We've completely re-imagined the Main menu to make navigation easier and more intuitive with key tools and services at your fingertips - no swiping required!
- The Account window is easily accessed by tapping Account at the top of the menu.
- Just below the Account widget, quick-tap icons give you access to Notifications, Alerts, and IBot FYIs.
- We've shortened the menu to show all key tools with no swiping, and included a new series of expandable features with easy-tap icons just below to replace the long list of text commands.
We continue to add support for mobile orders. Our latest update includes Trailing Stop Limit orders.
Post-Order Status Screen: When you submit an order, the Post Order Status screen appears and shows the current order status along with a set of next step action and information buttons. You can elect not to see the screen by unchecking it in Configuration.
Exit Strategy: Set up an exit strategy for an order using the Exit Strategy tool. You can define a bracket order to capture profit (Profit Taker) and help minimize loss (Stop Loss) using the Exit Strategy tool. Use one or both orders and mdify as needed. The Exit Strategy is available from the Post Order Status screen when valid, and also from Quote Details (when valid) for a current position.
Additional Translations: We now support Arabic and Hebrew languages, and will continue to add to/enhance these translations.
Built-in Tax Optimizer: Now you can change a trade's cost basis quickly and easily without leaving your trading platform using the built-in Tax Optimizer tool. To open Tax Optimizer, use the More menu.
Type Ahead with Smart Filtering: Finding the product you want to trade is now easier than ever! Start typing a symbol or company name in the Search for Symbol field, and our advanced type-ahead technology displays a list of products to choose from. Tap the product you want to add it to your tool, or continue typing to narrow down the list. Don't see a asset type you want? Tap the "Show More" button at the bottom of the list to view unsubscribed products. You can request trading permissions for these in Client Portal. It's now easier than ever to find a product to trade. Smart filtering with type-ahead technology lists the best-matching products as you start to type a symbol or company name, prioritizing those for which you have trading permissions. Tap a product to add it to your screen.
Pick Up Where You Left Off: If you need to quickly check a text message or an email, when you return to the app you will now return to exactly the same spot in the app.
This version also allows you to enter negative prices for certain Futures contracts.
TipRanks International Expansion: TipRanks ratings have been expanded to include non-US stocks, with added coverage for over 6,700 Canadian and European companies. TipRanks evaluates recommendations by financial analysts and bloggers, and then ranks those recommendations based on historical accuracy and performance.
To view TipRanks Ratings and Sentimental Analysis, open Quote Details for a stock and expand Analyst Reports. Tap Show More, then select TipRanks Analyst Ratings or TipRanks Sentiments.
TipRanks Ratings and Sentiments are available across all of our trading platforms, including Desktop TWS, Client Portal, and IBKR Mobile for Android.
