Interactive Brokers beefs up Risk Navigator capabilities in TWS platform
If traders have multiple models in their TWS portfolio, now they can add a Model dimension into their Risk Navigator “My Portfolio”.
Electronic trading major Interactive Brokers is working on further enhancements to its TWS platform. The latest (beta) version of the solution improves the capabilities of the Risk Navigator by adding Model Slicer.
If traders have multiple models in their TWS portfolio, now they can add a Model dimension into their Risk Navigator “My Portfolio” using the Dimensions menu, and a new “Model” drop-down category that appears in the navigation area that they can use to filter their positions in the report table and on the plot.
As FinanceFeeds has reported, Risk Navigator Cash Adjustment now treats position changes like virtual trades, and adjusts the cash in your what-if portfolio accordingly. The Risk Navigator “what-if” portfolio will now treat actions to add, remove or change existing positions just like simulated buy/sell orders, and keep the Net Liquidation Value of your portfolio as if in response to an actual trade, to act more like a real account. Alternatively, you can change the configuration to allow basic position changes that will affect the NLV or to ask each time, from the Settings menu using What-if Cash Adjustment.
Consider setting an initial cash amount for a new what-if portfolio, or update the cash amount at any time. You can also update the size of your what-if stock positions by entering the cash amount into the “Value” cell of your what-if portfolio.
Also, you can update what-if stock position sizes by entering cash amount into the Value cell of what-if portfolios. You can enable or disable “Fractional Theoretical Positions” using the Settings menu.
