Hi,

I'm interested in opening an account with IB and just wanted to ask what the minimum deposit needs to be. On the website it says $10,000 but earlier in the forum it said $2,000

Can anyone clarify which amount it is?

Thanks

Our minimum margin account initial deposit was previously $5,000, never $2,000.
It was increased for a number of factors e.g., clients trading in margin accouts should have sufficient funds to trade, considering how volatile markets are and etc).
