Logging In

To use WebTrader, your Internet Security and Privacy options must be set to the default levels. To check, on the Tools menu select Internet Options (IE) or Options (Firefox). On the Security and Privacy tabs, click Default Level if that button is active. If the button is gray, you are using the required default levels.

To log into WebTrader

  1. From the login menu in the upper right corner of the IB home page, select WebTrader from the drop-down list.

You will also see the WebTrader Beta selection when available. The beta is a live test version of the WebTrader application. You can log into beta to test new features, but remember that you are still trading through your live IB account.

  1. Enter your IB user name and password, then click Login. To view WebTrader in another language, select the language before you click Login.
  2. If you check the Store settings on server check box when you log in, any changes you make to your preferences, modes, market view and more will be saved to a remote server and will be used the next time you log into WebTrader regardless of where you initiate the session.

    You can only be logged into one IB trading session at a time, including TWS, MobileTrader or WebTrader.

  1. The first time you log into WebTrader, it opens on the Market page, which displays market data for selected instruments. On every subsequent login, WebTrader opens on the screen that was displayed before your last logout.
