Icons are like people – they come in different shapes and sizes, and they’re all useful for different things. For your reference, we’ve created a legend that should give you a clearer idea of the functions and locations of various platform icons. 


 Alerts - Located in the Symbol Detail menu.

 Displays details for your accounts (Portfolio delta, theta, Net Liq, P/L Day, etc.) - Located on the top right-hand side of the platform window.

 Displays account Cash Balances and Day Trade Buying Power - Located next to account number when the Accounts drop-down menu (icon above) is expanded rather than collapsed.

 Dividend - An upcoming dividend ex-date is approaching.

 or  Earnings announcement before market open or after market close - Located under Symbol Detail in the right sidebar menu and Watchlists (if "Earnings Date" column is added). The left arrow “<” denotes before the bell, or open, and the right arrow “>” denotes after the bell, or close. 

 Earnings with day countdown - located under the ‘Underlying Indicator’ column and Symbol Detail. 

 Earnings - Upcoming earnings date; located under Symbol Detail.

 Flatten - Located within an open position in the Active Trader Interface. Clicking flatten will cancel all working orders for a specific underlying and close out the position so the account is flat (no open position on a specific underlying). Flatten does not liquidate the whole portfolio.

 Filled - Located in the Order pane, which appears in the right sidebar menu or in the Activity tab; indicates a filled order.

 Filter Funnel - Located in the Trade and Watchlist tabs; enables you to filter different expirations (Trade tab) or conditional metrics (Watchlist tab).

 or  Sidebar menu show and hide, respectively - Located on the top right-hand corner of the platform. Clicking this will make the right sidebar menu appear/disappear. In the menu, you can see Symbol Details, Position Details, and the Order pane. 

 In-the-Money (ITM) - Displayed next to symbols in the Positions tab whenever an options position is in-the-money. 

 Liquidity Indicator - Liquidity of the symbol on a 1-4 scale, with 4 being the highest (shaded = filled); the results displayed by this indicator are based on tastytrade’s proprietary formula. 

 Live activity filtering range - If displayed, this icon is located next to the filter menu in the Activity tab; when this icon appears, it indicates that the way you’ve filtered your date range to view your trading activity includes today’s date, so you are viewing the tab on a “live” or “activity-to-date” basis (End Date for the filter range will be the current date). 

 Not-live/historical activity filtering range - If displayed, this icon is located next to the filter menu in the Activity tab; when this icon appears, it indicates that the way you’ve filtered your date range to view your trading activity does not include today’s date, so you are viewing the tab on a “not-live” or “historical activity” basis (End Date for the filter range will be a prior date). 

 Markets are Live and Connected -  Located in the bottom left-hand corner of the platform.

 Markets are not open or Lost Connection -  Located in the bottom left-hand corner of the platform.

 Page Indicators - Located wherever there is an overflow of displayed columns; empty circles indicate another page that can be accessed. 

 Partially-filled order - Located in the Order pane or Activity tab; the fraction shows the portion of the order that has already been filled.

 Partial fill, canceled order - Located in the Order pane or Activity tab; this indicates an order that was partially filled but was canceled.

 Partial fill, expired order - Located in the Order pane or Activity tab; this indicates an order that was partially filled but then expired. For example, a day order that was not filled all the way would be considered expired at market close that day.

 Reject - Located in the Order pane in the right sidebar menu as well as in the Activity tab; if you hover over this icon, you will be able to see why an order was rejected.

 Settings Menu - Located throughout the platform; all of these little cog/sprocket icons take you to the same general platform settings menu, but they differ in that they will direct you to different parts of the menu (like quick-links). 

 Theta - Located in the Positions tab (if displayed) or wherever underlying details are shown.

 or  Trade Shield - Located next to your account number(s) when the Accounts drop-down menu is fully expanded rather than collapsed. When the Trade Shield next to a specific account is shaded white, that indicates that the account is your default trading account (the one your orders will be routed through). Clicking on a gray Trade Shield next to another account will switch that account to your default trading account and turn its Shield white. 

 Vega - Located in the Positions tab (if displayed) or wherever underlying details are shown.
