Here you can also change which items from your menu and how they are displayed. When you scroll down you can adjust almost any visible element of the platform. You are able to turn on candle information on hover (OHLC) or hide account balance. At the bottom, you will find the advanced settings where it is possible to reduce the FPS (frames per second). Doing that you allow running IQ Option platform on older hardware.


Below the appearance, you will find the “Trading” tab. Here you have the possibility to enable the trade completion for both, binary and digital options. Then you can select for which assets you want to open and close the positions without confirmation and whether you wish the same settings to apply for your demo account. You can also choose how your opened transactions data are displayed on the asset tab.
