IB Save Page?

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by DisciplinedHedg, Apr 19, 2002.

  1. Where is the main untitled trading page saved?

    ie. Everytime I access my account from my laptop vs my desktop computer, the main trading page is different. Same when I access the standalone app vs the java app on the same computer.

    I'm assuming they save these in certain locations?

    Anyone know the specifics of this so that I can access the same tickers everytime I open IB no matter from where or what app? Is it as simple as saving the basket?

    the data is stored locally on your computer (once you hit the save data button

    To copy the TWS Symbols Page to another PC/user:

    1. Go to My Computer and Click on C:
    2. Click IBJts folder (if you are using the browser version) or Go to the
    C:\jts folder (if you are
    using the installed version)
    3. In there, you should see a numbers of sub-folders (i.e. dblsxykm).
    4. The difficult part is to trying to determine which folder is for which
    username.
    5. Inside those folders, you should see a file called jts.pg
    6. Copy this file to a disk.
    7. If you want to put this to another computer, then open up My Computer on
    your other computer and
    repeat steps 1 to 3.
    8. Paste the jts to the folder that you copied the jts The folders should
    have the same name
