|Have you ever wanted to enter Trader Workstation commands in simple text? Now you can with IBot, our new text-based natural language interface for TWS. Simply enter commands in English, and IBot responds quickly with the requested data or action. IBot helps you complete key TWS trading tasks from a single place without needing to navigate anywhere else.
IBot understands commands in nine different trading categories, including quotes, charts, orders, trades, and your account. IBot can also modify commands (for example, change that sell order to a buy order), provide help, show company information, and help you contact customer service.
To use IBot, first open it from the New Window drop down by selecting IBot (beta) - type to trade. With IBot open, use the text entry field at the bottom of the window to enter your command. For example, type "Buy 300 ibkr at 34" and press Enter. Your part is done. IBot will perform the specified action (in this case, creating a limit order for 300 shares of IBKR at a limit price of $34.00). Review the order and submit, or click the Edit button to modify any order parameters.
Give IBot a try. If you need help, watch the demo by typing "demo" in the entry field, or get help by typing "help." If you enter a command that IBot doesn't understand, chances are we just haven't added it yet!
Coming soon: IBot with voice recognition on your mobile device.
