This will be achieved via new go-to screens. Go-to screens get traders to the tasks they most often perform with just a click (or tap).

The platform will unify desktop, tablet, and mobile trading. Traders can review their account information, add a stock to a watchlist, and set their preferences on their home computer then pick up where they left off on their smartphone.

Radar trading

When traders type the first few letters of a security in the search bar and the platform goes to work, instantly giving them a list to choose from. Once they are done with it, they will see a small icon in the left toolbar with the security’s symbol and percentage change. The platform makes it easier to find it, keep it on the radar, and pounce when the time is right.

Research tools

The company is loading the new platform with research tools to make trading smarter and faster. Traders can read news articles and watch streaming videos directly from Morningstar, access Market Intelligence for reports, earnings, and other fundamental research. Education tools will also be available via a library of help articles, FAQs, how-to videos, and blogs.
