Like how my workspace on Interactive Brokers Traders Workstation (IB TWS) looks? Why not download it and try it out yourself? This includes all my settings including order defaults and display setting. Keep in mind that I have optimized it for my trading style and my monitor size (22″, 1900 x 1280). Let me know what you think if you give it a try. Also, please be aware that I have certain order presets (such as discretionary amount) that are not suitable to most traders. Please use this workspace only to see how I have it configured and to get ideas for your own workspace. Do not just load it and trade with it, not knowing all the presets I have. One preset I have is to have a ‘discretionary’ amount of 3 cents, such that the software will try to fill any limit orders 3 cents beyond the limit. Due to changes in IB’s software I do not think it is now possible to remove that setting.
