Account Summary

The Account Summary tool gives you a real-time snapshot of everything happening with your account. This is where you'll find your consolidated gain/loss (G/L), balance, and order information for an account. It displays how much your account is up or down for the day or since purchase on open positions and positions you closed out that day. The balance section highlights buying power balances for quick reference as a seamless part of your trade flow. You'll also have access to information on the number of open orders, open positions, trades executed today, and price improved orders.

For definition on balances shown on the Account Summary tool, go to Balances.

  • Price Improvement

    We pride ourselves on execution quality and are committed to sending eligible orders to the best performing market centers.

    You can view the following price improvement details for an account on the Account Summary tool:

    • Number of Price Improved Orders
      This number reflects the count of eligible executed orders within the specified time frame with a weighted average execution price below the Ask Price (for buys) or above the Bid Price (for sells) at the time the order was submitted. Price improvement data is not provided for the following: not held orders, all or none orders, sell short orders, and orders placed outside of standard market hours.
    • Total Price Improvement
      This is the sum of net price improvements on eligible orders executed for the stated time frame. For buys and sells, price improvement is displayed per execution and per order, only when an order has been net price improved. Price improvements at the execution and individual order level are rounded down to the nearest penny.

    Price improvement details are provided for domestic stock and single leg option orders entered during market hours after the primary opening, provided there is a National Best Bid and Offer (NBBO) at the time the order is placed. Price improvement details are for informational purposes only and are not used for regulatory reporting purposes. Buy orders with a weighted average execution price below the National Best Offer (NBO) are considered price improved. Price improvement for buy orders is calculated by subtracting the weighted average execution price from the NBO, then multiplying by the number of executed shares to arrive at the net price improvement for the order. Sell orders with a weighted average execution price above the National Best Bid (NBB) are considered price improved. Price improvement for sell orders is calculated by subtracting the NBB from the weighted average execution price, then multiplying by the number of executed shares to arrive at the net price improvement for the order.
