Is there nobody interested in lumber.

Volumes on the electronic exhange are already relatively high, but we as InteractiBrokers clients can't trade them.

Obviously not and you are the only person I have come across who wants to trade this. If there are not enough people trading it then IB wont list it but I wish you good luck.

Hi, I wish to ask a few questions about IB, sorry if they have been asked before but 146 pages a tad long for me to read it all.

I am Uk based and wish to do various things, listed below, trading short term, medium and long.

a, may I purchase USA & Uk shares with IB and retain the shares long term including recieving dividends that come with the company? if so how would that work? I wish to be non leveraged on these purchases. For my long term portfolio.

b, May I have a non-leveraged account and only trade with the cash that is in the IB account? and then also have a leveraged account seperate from the non-leveraged account as mentioned above.

c, Can I lose more than my deposited cash with IB in a volitile market. To what extent will my liabilitees be?

Hi,

Can someone from IB please tell me how much commission will it cost me to sell 10 contracts of call option in QQQQ including buying back the 10 contracts as well (round trip).

Thanks.

Forget to say that I have the same 1000 QQQQ for more than 6 years. It means the "selling call" is covered without the need buying the stock in terms of calculating commissions.

Thanks.

I have not used my IB account in a long time and I am unable to access it, now. There is an error between my user name and password, although I was reasonably sure that it is correct. Any attempt to communicate with them on my part requires this combination so its like hitting a stone wall. They tell me that there is no correlation between username, password or email address so do not want to know me.

I am hoping that an IB official reads this post and will help me out.
