Navigation and Trading Platform
Users will find that the Web Browser Trading Platform closely resembles our Desktop Platform’s feel and functionality. Much like its counterpart, the web platform is built into several customizable and distinct panels. Each is labeled in numerical order below.
- Web Navigation Header
- Left-panel Quick View Watchlist
- Right-panel Symbol Overview and Details
- Middle-panel Primary Window
- Navigation Panel and Account Selector
Web Navigation Header
The platform's topmost section comprises the dashboard, trading platform, and account management buttons, symbol search field, connectivity status, platform settings, and sign-out button.

The symbol typed into the Symbol Search field will become the active symbol across the platform. Additionally, users can click on symbols in the positions or watchlist tab to select a new active symbol.

F. Users can access the platform settings by clicking on the gear icon in the top right of the platform. Any adjustments to your settings will permeate across all other platforms. For example, if you set your default stock order quantity to 1 share on the Web Platform, that will also set your default stock order quantity to 1 share on the desktop platform (and vice-versa). If a setting is unavailable or not working as intended, please open the legacy web platform or desktop platform and adjust your settings from there.

Right-panel Symbol Overview and Details

The middle panel will populate the active tab selected via the left-side Navigation Bar. Each platform tab overview can be found in the section below.
