Pity IB's site is so confusing, with some of the links apparently leading in circles or to unavailable pages.

For a UK resident, trading mainly US indices, what are the costs: minimum initial deposit (in £), whether that has to be maintained, etc?

Required Minimums

Minimum 10000 USD initial deposit.
After that you can withdraw money, but you must have at least USD 2000 in your account to trade a margin account.

Can someone tell me what the smallest amounts are that I can trade on dow and main euro futures with interactive, I want to trade quite often per day but I only want to start in small sizes so I'm just weighing up the pros and cons of direct access with spread betting, many thanks

The smallest contract will be the YM or mini Dow, one contract of which is worth $5 per point, and trades with a one point spread most of the time. The DAX is E12.50 per half-point, averages a 1 point spread (2 half points). Eurostox50 E10 per point, 1p spread.
Obviously these contracts are a fixed size regardless of which DA broker you choose.

No, no, no

the EStx50 is € 10,00 per point only!!!!! So is the BUND! Both are recommended for starters, although moving slowly only. Faster ones that are small are IBEX and CAC40.

Kind regards
