Chicago, IL, United States, 2006/08/30 - Online options broker AOS, Inc. has upgraded their real-time account management tools at aosbroker.com. Clients can view balances, positions, watch lists and buying power in real-time, and download historical account information among other features.
The newly enhanced Account Status allows clients to access comprehensive data on real-time stock and option buying power, overall account value, current position value, margin requirement and total value residing in money market funds and cash.
“Real-time account metrics are critical for active traders seeking to understand their buying power during the trading day,” said Jere Wickert, president of AOS, Inc. “AOS’ on-going commitment to elevate our real-time technologies, from our web and direct-access trading systems to our high-speed execution engine, will further enhance our clients’ ability to trade and invest with confidence.”
AOS clients can also view and update their account profile online, including the ability to change account statement delivery and Auto Trade service status. Clients using Auto Trade can specify or change how trades from any active service are allocated – as a percentage of the overall account value or by number of shares or option contracts traded.
Further, account holders can link all of their AOS accounts to permit convenient viewing of current and historical activity without having to log in for each account.
Clients can also perform customized queries to view trade history from the selected account. Data results can then be sorted and downloaded into Microsoft® Excel®, Quicken®, or any number of portfolio management software or web-based platforms. Daily, monthly, and money market statements are available in Adobe® Reader (PDF) format for viewing consolidated activity and account values. All statements can be conveniently downloaded for year-end tax reporting.
