One of the major benefits of ViewPoint is there is no requirement for Java which Trader required. This means ViewPoint is compatible with the following browser technologies:

  • Chrome (latest version)
  • Mozilla FireFox (latest version)
  • Safari (latest version)
  • Microsoft Edge (latest version)

For the best experience we recommend updating your browsers to the latest versions available. To help with this, we encourage you to have your browsers on an auto update schedule. Browsers such as Chrome and Mozilla FireFox will update in the background when you close and reopen your computer's browser.

Along with improvements that come with browser updates for security reasons, it’s always a good idea to install updates when they are made available.

Links to download the latest browser versions can be found below:

No, IRESS ViewPoint will be available to all IRESS Trader subscribers whether you have qualified or paid for the subscription. The pricing structure will also remain the same. View qualification and pricing information.

If some widgets aren’t appearing correctly you’ll need to adjust your screen or image resolution. If you have too many widgets or not enough space for them, the widget abbreviation will simply appear.

Another option to show more data in less space is to layer widgets over the top of each other, then browse between the tabs. You can add a widget over an existing one by clicking on the menu item in the top right hand corner and selecting add widget. The new one will appear as an additional tab.

You can also detach a widget to display them outside of the workspace area by clicking on the menu item in the top right hand corner and selecting detach. Then drag the window to wherever you would like it to be placed.
