By default, the Balances tab is partitioned into sections, displaying all asset types simultaneously. The Account No drop-down list allows you to display a specific asset type (Equities/Options, Futures), or specify a certain TradeStation account that you currently have open. For general information, see About TradeManager.

  • Account No Column - Contains values and other information that provides specific details related to the field in the row.
  • Show/Hide   - Used in the Account No column for all account types, and in the Currency Column for Futures. The show/hide buttons allows you to show or hide the details listed within the selected fields.

Balance summaries are available for any Equities/Options, Futures accounts that are active in TradeStation. For multiple accounts in an asset category, the balances for each account will display in a separate column.
