tastyworks desktop version 0.35 release 3/8/2019
This latest update includes the addition of the following features:
- Average Fill Price price column (Avg Fill) in the Activity tab
- Days Since Open column (D's Open) in the Positions tab
- tastytrade broadcast in the right-hand sidebar
- Market Newsfeed in the right-hand sidebar
Average Fill Price
Whether your Position had multiple legs or was partially filled initially, the new Average Fill price column, labeled as Avg Fill, will indicate your average fill price. If you're trading a one-lot, then you'll notice that the Avg Fill price displayed will align with the History tab. However, if you were trading more than a one-lot and your order had multiple fills, then the put that calculator away, because the Average Fill price column will do the math for you.
Days Since Open
There's no need to head to the Activity tab and search to see when you initially opened a futures or equity options position. Now, in the Positions tab, you can view how many days you've had a future or equity options position open in your portfolio. The column is labeled as D's Open when added to the Positions tab.

tastytrade Tab in the Right-Hand Sidebar
If you love watching tastytrade and are tired of flipping back and forth between the tastytrade tab just so you can follow along, then you'll be happy to hear that the tastytrade tab is now in the right-hand side bar. If your monitor has enough Real Estate, then you can view the broadcast while trading simultaneously.
To prevent flipping between windows in the sidebar, you'll still be able to see your Position Details and Orders window, similar to the Overview tab.

In addition to the tastytrade broadcast in the right-hand sidebar, there is now a Market Newsfeed. This feed provides headlines of the overall market. The Market Newsfeed now joins the Alerts tab in the sidebar. You can locate it by clicking the News/Alerts.
tastyworks desktop version 0.34 release 2/20/2019
This latest version update includes the addition of Ext, or Extrinsic Value, to Account Details at the top of the platform. Ext measures the total extrinsic value of all your options positions.
Ext will display a negative number if your account is net long options or display a positive number when your account is net short options.
To accommodate this new Ext column in the Account Details area, Delta and Theta are no longer decimalized to the hundredth (0.00) and will display as a whole number instead, rounded to the nearest whole number. The ability to view a decimalized number will return in the form of a display option in the platform settings menu, which we plan to implement soon.
Additionally, the Ext column in the Positions tab is no longer displayed as an absolute value. Instead, it will show as a positive number when you are short an option (blue box) or a negative number when you are long an option (orange box). The symbol group will sum up the total Extrinsic Value (yellow arrow). Below is an example of a short Iron Condor position. You'll notice that the two short legs have a positive Ext value and the long legs have a negative value.

Maintenance Excess in the Balances drop-down menu
If you have a margin account and click the Balances drop-down menu , located immediately to the right of your account, then you'll see Maintenance Excess. What is maintenance excess? It is the amount of excess cash and/or equity outside of your maintenance margin requirements. This tells you how close you are to a maintenance margin call (when it is positive) or the real-time amount of a maintenance margin call (when it is negative). To learn more click here.
tastyworks mobile version 1.6.2 release 10/25/2018
Our most recent release of the tastyworks mobile app is mainly comprised of bug fixes and display improvements.
First, an underlying that does not trade options will no longer load within table or curve mode. An underlying that only trades stock will revert to stock mode after symbol entry.
Closing orders for stock or outright futures positions can now be closed using the strategy selector.
Account activity in the History tab can be selected by tapping each transaction. Selected transactions will highlight grey and total beneath the Amount heading.
Improvements have been made to handle chart data better and address display issues.
Lastly, a slight change to the positions tab was made to accommodate the display of stock positions.
