25 August, 2018 seen 14,260A time ago I opened a brokerage account with Lynx Broker, which turns out is affiliated with Interactive Brokers. As I opened my account from Europe, by default my base currency was set to EUR, which in fact is nice and neat, as SEPA transfers from my bank to brokerage account happens almost instantly (in the same day). Now, as I started to acquire US…
Interactive Brokers is a damn good brokerage account where you can trade stocks, options, and futures, I've been amazed by this brokerage account for years.
Sometimes some glitch happens, but nothing too serious - one such glitch happening - is a missing Portfolio tab in Classic TWS.
I should note I have faced this on my MacBook only - might be or not be related to the TWS versions, not sure.
It happens when you log in to the TWS, there is no Portfolio tab:
In my case it was showing only Watchlist tab. I tried to add new Portfoio tab by pressing +, but nothing actually really worked as expected.
In the past I have spent good time figuring out how to get back Portfolio tab, sometimes I was able to find it and drag it in from the finder menu, clicking on the TWS icon and pressing - show all windows (sometimes Portfolio tab is in a seperate window in Mac)
anyhot, I found a much easir and simpler solution
From Account - > Portfolio Window
And it brings back Portfoio window under a seperate tab.
Hope it helps! If so, please leave a comment below!
