How Does that Benefit the Traders?

Here are the top launches introduced by Interactive Brokers, which will provide a more comprehensive experience to its users. They are:

MultiSort Screeners

MultiSort Screeners allow users to sift through and organise data using multiple criteria simultaneously. This is a blessing for traders who prefer to analyse a wide range of information, such as fundamental data, historical performance, and technical indicators, simultaneously. With MultiSort, users can easily input multiple preferences and get results. 

Users can select up to 10 sorting factors and utilise up/down arrows to designate whether lower or higher values are preferable. Additionally, users can specify the “Importance” level of each factor, with options ranging from “Somewhat Important” to “Very Important.” As factors are adjusted, the screener dynamically updates in real-time.

Option Lattice

Option Lattice, a graphical representation of options chains, helps identify potential outliers like Implied Volatility, Open Interest, Volume, or Last Price. This means users can now easily undertake cross-comparisons of different option contract metrics. This is applicable for different expiry dates, too.

Option Analysis 

This new launch aims to give users an in-depth analysis (editable) of a single underlying asset. It has many metrics like Option Volume, Implied Volatility, Historical Volatility, Sker, Open Interest, and more.
