The Order Book displays all the orders for all the accounts that you have access to for the current trading day. The most common columns are visible by default. Each order listed will have a submission time, market description, buy/sell volume, price, order type, and status. Buy orders are displayed in blue, sell orders in red. A list of fills will exist if the order has been partially or completely filled. Order status provides you with important information regarding the current state of your order. Many additional Columns are available in Order Book Properties, Columns Tab.
Filtered views of your orders are provided by the View Tabs at the top of the screen. Simply click the view you desire and Order Book will display the appropriate orders. The default, All view, is an unfiltered view showing you all orders placed during the current trading day. The Working view displays only the working orders. The Filled view shows only orders that are partially or completely filled. Refer to the View Tabs section for a more detailed description of Order Book views.
The Order Book also allows you to print the contents of a view, pull or revise orders and retrieve additional Order Details.
