The quote lookup field at the top of the trading tool has some distinctive features. Such as Universal Symbol Search. Anything in the platform that requires a symbol to present information will be hooked up to this symbol. So if you search for AAPL, any component or widget in the platform will show information for AAPL.

In the Universal Symbol Search field, start typing a company name or ticker and we will automatically show a drop down of the possible companies. This makes it easier and faster to find the symbol you’re looking for.
