What is Time and Sales?

Time and sales show all of the transactions of sales that occur, in real time. Time and Sales will show you information such as the time the transaction occurred, if it is on Bid Side or Ask Side (Or sometimes in the middle!), and the transaction amount.  Below is a short video on setting up Time and Sales on the Interactive Brokers Trader Workstation.




Details of Time and Sales


  • Date and Time - The date and exact time that the trade occurred
  • Direction - Is the price going up or down? On the Bid or Ask?
  • Price - The price at which the trade occurred
  • Volume or Size - The number of contracts (or shares, etc.) that were traded
