One of the greatest advantages of a web-based platform is it's availability. Ironbeam's online platform is fully integrated with our downloadable platform, meaning that users can seamlessly switch from one to the other. The online platform provides much of the same capability as our desktop software, plus some additional features only available online such as free daily research from futures and options experts; contract specifications detailing tic value and worth; and margin requirements and calculation. The web-based platform also offers charting, live quotes, account history, and most of the other tools available on the desktop platform.
Finally, for those traders who don't prescribe to the either the Windows or Mac way of computing, the online platform provides you with an electronic trading platform capable of performing on any system that has Java installed.
