The new version of the IBKR Mobile app for iOS devices allows traders to view an instrument’s position values in the account’s Base Currency.

Online trading major Interactive Brokers has released new versions of its mobile apps for iOS-based and Android-based devices.

The newest version of IBKR Mobile for iOS-based gadgets enables traders to view an instrument’s position values in the account’s Base Currency.

Further, watchlists are now seamlessly shared between platforms. Traders should use the Browse Lists feature on the Watchlist page to get access to the new functionality.

Regarding the app for Android-based devices, Interactive Brokers invites traders to try the new FX Conversion tool, designed to simplify managing one’s currency balances. Also, traders can now close a currency balance directly from either the Account or Portfolio screen.

In terms of future improvements, the brokerage promises the addition of in-depth fundamental and analytical data to the app. In preparation for this change, the developers are adjusting how the News, Reports, Research and Orders sections in Quote Details are displayed.

To hide this new data, one has to simply tap “Sections” from the More menu (3 dots) in the top right of the Quote Details 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.
