Build 6.9.516 - March 26, 2014

Display Frozen Market Data, High Precision Forex Quotes, Ability to Launch Account Mgmt

Recent updates to mobileTWS for Android include:

Display Frozen Market Data - A static snapshot of the last known quote (bid, ask, and sizes) will be displayed when markets are closed. Note that static data is displayed only for tickers that have a market data description. Frozen data is identifiable by its grey background and small diamond-shaped icon preceding the quote.

High Precision Forex Quotes - We now offer high-precision quotes for Forex to 1/10 of a pip, versus the current 1/2 pip quote. Please note that the 1/10 pip affects the quoted prices only and does not affect the order routing. Additionally, this only applies to ticker row data and is not yet reflected in charts, deep book or Time and Sales data. To enable high precision forex quotes, open Configuration and check High precision Forex quotes.

Launch Account Management - You can now launch Account Management from within mobileTWS without having to log in separately. To launch Account Management, use the Manage button in the upper right corner of the Account page, or use the Configuration page. Note that this feature is not available in Read-Only mode, as it requires login verification.

You can now add structured products to a watchlist by entering the ISIN. You can locate a product’s ISIN using the Contract Search accessed from the Help & Contacts menu along the top of the IB web site.
