Interactive Brokers enriches IBot user experience

Maria Nikolova

IBot is now offering supplemental articles and information from external sources, like Wikipedia and Investopedia.

Online trading major Interactive Brokers continues to enhance its natural text interface to trading – IBot, underlying its commitment to make it easy to get market and account information quickly.

IBot is now offering supplemental articles and information from external sources, like Wikipedia and Investopedia. These third-party additions are clearly marked in IBot’s search results.

Let’s recall that, in June 2018, the company introduced the “IBKR IBot Skill” for Amazon Alexa, which lets traders access Interactive Brokers’ content and data from any Alexa-enabled device, including the Echo, Dot, and Fire TV.

Alexa can install this skill for a trader through a simple voice command: “Alexa, open IBKR.” Once initiated, traders can ask Alexa for the latest market updates (which she is set to provide courtesy of briefing.com), real-time quotes, volume, and other market data, and general information pertaining to Interactive Brokers.

IBot’s text-based interface helps traders complete key trading tasks without having to navigate anywhere else. IBot’s text entry field accepts commands you enter in plain English, and responds by presenting you with the data or information you requested. Traders can get quote details, create and submit orders (including complex algos), look at account values, find website information, complete Account Management-based tasks, as well as open a chart via IBot’s intuitive interface.

To use IBot

  • 1. From the Mosaic menu, click IBOT.
  • 2. Enter a command in the text box at the bottom of the IBot interface using everyday language.
  • 3. Interact as needed with IBot’s response.
