Account View

The Account View window gives you access to all the information about your trading account that you previously set up in Settings - Trading - Accounts. Note the colored outline - the color is there to indicate which trading account the window represents and is set in Settings - Trading - Accounts.  The Linked setting next to the account, if selected, will make sure that all other Linked trade windows will switch accounts if one of them is switched.

 

The window has three tabs:

 

Positions

 

Trading - Account - Positions

 

The Positions tab shows all the positions held in the account, and various data points associated with each position. The columns in the table of positions can be selected and rearranged in the same way it is done on Portfolios.

 

For any positions that have open pending transactions, those are shown together with the position.

 

On the Filter section in the Main tab of the ribbon menu, you can filter the shown positions by symbol. You can also open new Trade Windows such as Trade Ticket, another Account View, or Trade Log from the ribbon menu.
