Interactive Brokers adds privacy mode to mobile app
Tapping on a sensitive field will hide its value along with other sensitive items.
Online trading major Interactive Brokers continues to improve the capabilities of its mobile applications. The latest enhancements concern the IBKR Mobile app devices.
Version 8.62 of the app for iOS devices, which was just released, introduces a privacy mode. If a trader taps on a sensitive field, such as the Net Liquidity, the mode will hide its value along with other sensitive items. Another tap on the field will restore the value.
The preceding version of the solution introduced a new FX Conversion tool, designed to simplify managing users’ currency balances. Also, traders got the ability to close a currency balance directly from either the Account or Portfolio screen.
Earlier this year, the IBKR Mobile app saw a raft of enhancements, ranging from addition of a new order type to improved access to the Services screen. MidPrice orders for stocks was made available for users of the IBKR Mobile solution. As FinanceFeeds reported when covering the enhancements to the TWS Desktop platform, MidPrice orders are designed to split the difference between the bid and ask prices, and fill at the current midpoint of the NBBO – or better.
Also, that version of the IBKR Mobile app introduces mobile ChartTrader. Traders got to use this intuitive and powerful tool to set order pricing right from their chart. They can open the chart from the sidebar on order entry, or use 3D touch on the chart to define a limit order. Another improvement concerns Calendar Events, as users of the app got to view Instrument Details and place an order from an event.
