  • Account - summary tab
  • Account - orders tab
  • Account - positions tab
  • Account - executions tab
  • Watch list
  • Level 1 and level 2
  • Options

    Note: by default the columns that are visible will be selected.

  3. Select the checkbox next to the columns you want to display, or select the column and then click Show. In this example, we're modifying the information shown in the watch list window.
