Searching for stocks through IB?

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by short&naked, Sep 21, 2008.

  1. I see that IB categorizes their stock offering in categories and sub-categories (Right-click on a stock symbol and click Description).

    Simple question: Is there a way to screen/search for stocks through IB using this information? I wasn't able to find a search engine through TWS.
  2. I think the closest you'll get is creating a Market Scanner page in TWS.
