Rich and powerful
This is one muscular platform.
It also happens to be loaded with features. When we built IQ,
we made a wish list of everything a trader needs, plus some
really cool extras. Then we proceeded to put a check-mark
beside everything on the list. What this means is you can
interact with a massive amount of market and account data, and
the platform will respond lightning-fast to your every key (or

effortless as it sounds.
Simple, flexible, connected. This is what complete control

You'll never miss a thing.
Market data is your view on the exchanges. With IQ, the view
is amazing: expanded routes, expanded market depth, more ECNs,
and more ways to package it together into your own personal
panorama (we call it a subscription or a data plan).
All U.S. market data is available as live streaming straight
from the market to IQ. We offer a number of subscriptions to
different exchanges. Depending on your trading activity levels,
we often reduce the price on data.
Enough studies, drawings, and charts to
satisfy the most dedicated technical research enthusiast. And
easy to use for the rest of us.
Technical analysis is at the heart of IQ (and many a
trader). With a single click from anywhere in the platform, you
can analyze the movement and performance of a symbol (or
overlay another symbol for comparison). We’ve incorporated more

indicating patterns, volatility, momentum and support /
resistance levels. There are more drawings so you can work the
data how you want, from trendlines all the way up to Fibonacci
arcs, fans, retracements and extensions. Construct your chart
for any interval you like, and then set the display for
candlesticks, lines, bars or mountains. Whatever your visual
cues, the indications you watch to trigger a trade, we’ve
polished and perfected them. Think of it as technical analysis,
