I wish to open a UK IB account and have a query about funding it. Can I do a BACS transfer from a UK bank account ? Alternatively, can I write a cheque in sterling or use my debit card ? Also, does IB do BACS transfers to a UK bank account when one needs to withdraw cash ? Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can send GBP funds by BACS if speed is not important. I believe all GBP withdrawals are CHAPS and you get one fee-free one per month.

Hi IB,

I have saved a couple of chart templates, and I want to use one of them as default when I open up a chart from the market scanner. Is that possible?

I can right click on a normal Quote Monitor page, "Charts", then one of my templates, but this option is not available in the market scanner page, and I can only right click, "Analysis", then "Realtime Charts"

Cheers,

Adrian

Re: Interactive Brokers

hi, I opened an account and got the confirmation. I launched the TradeWorkstation, but I could only see two sample quotes. I think it is because my fund has not arrived yet, Will I be able to see all the quotes if my fund arrives?

And I notice quotes of many markets are not free (are the fees listed monthly fee, by the way?). Can I trade the stocks/futures/FX... even if I don't get the quote service from you (I may find quotes elsewhere)?
