How do I place an order using IRESS ViewPoint?

To place an order using IRESS ViewPoint follow these steps:

Start by logging into your nabtrade account and navigating to: Trading > Launch IRESS Trader.

A dialogue box will appear with the option to launch either IRESS Trader or IRESS ViewPoint, select IRESS ViewPoint and Log On.

Once IRESS ViewPoint has launched, you can access the Fixed Order Entry widget from the main order window or from within any widget.
