This lesson is an overview of what to expect from the Fixed-Income Trading for TWS course.

Study Notes:

There are several tools in the IBKR Trader Workstation to enable fixed-income traders and investors to make buy and sell decisions on a host of securities, including government, corporate, and municipal bonds, among others.

In this course, we’ll walk you through how to use these tools— namely how to create and configure fixed income-related watchlists, how to navigate the advanced market— and global bond scanners, and how to use a dedicated bond scanner layout to chart the performance of securities, as well as make order entries.

By the end of this course, you should learn how to search for, select, analyze, and make investment decisions about specific fixed-income products.
