Hello, Here are some new ideas I would like to see in a future version of TWS (I copy this to IB management too). 1. (option) TWS always start minimized as an icon in the right corner of the task bar 2. (option) TWS icon in the right corner of the task bar gets animated: turn green when a buy order is executed, turn red when a sell order is executed. yellow will be connected but no order, dark will be connection problem. ? on the icon will appear when a new bulletin is received... 3. of course when you click on the icon, TWS GUI appears. 4. when you put your mouse on the icon, account # and total PnL is displayed. This mode is interesting for people accessing IB API only.
