Trader Workstation Key Enhancements. We remain dedicated to improving our clients' trading experience. With that in mind, here are some important recent enhancements to our TWS trading platform. We have made significant enhancements to our mobile trading platform this past year. In addition to introducing a modern look and feel for maximum usability, we streamlined and improved many features in IB TWS for Mobile, including Order Entry, Option Chains, full screen charts, and, by popular demand, added a color theme selector.
We are pleased to announce that not only is IBot available on IB TWS for iOS, but also includes voice support using a recognition engine specially fine-tuned to understand financial terms. This is a natural way to trade on the go.
We've also made IBot smarter - it now supports more trading commands. You can now get voice feedback from our desktop platform TWS in your native language. For example, if you set your TWS desktop language to German, the audio feedback for all key actions will be in German. Today's traders demand the best research available. That's why we have expanded our research to include the following premium research providers: All News and Research.
Beginning in January , IRA customers will no longer have to pay this fee. We recently added support for Advisors who require special account structures. For Advisor consolidators that service other smaller Advisors, we now have an Advisor-Advisor account in which an Advisor can manage multiple Advisors. For Advisors who need to manage multiple accounts for a single client, have these accounts margined together and have the ability to let different traders manage parts of a client's money, we now offer the Advisor-Separate Trading Limit account, which lets an Advisor manage a client account with a Separate Trading Limit account below.
