Interactive Brokers strategy is to provide our clients new value. For example, last year we provided multiple free upgrades to our software, we added new exchanges and services.
We are always considering new products, exchanges, features, services and etc. If we get considerable interest/feedback in adding CFD's to our product list we will consider it.

JonnyT and others on this board recommend you, and you appear to offer everything I need, so it's just a matter of finalising my setup.

Thank you for the feedback and I will look forward to hearing from you. In the interim good luck trading!

In my portfoilo I have a few holdings in penny stocks such as Platinum Mining(PMCI), Black Rock Oil(BLR) and Warthog(WHOG ). I cannot see these listed on http://www.interactivebrokers.com/en...e&ib_entity=uk , does this mean I wouldn't be able to transfer them to IB and trade in them?

Dear Osho67:

As long as your Interactive Brokers account name matchs your wire transfer (withdrawal) instruction and appears in the name of the account you wish to forward the money too, there is no problem. With respects to JohnyT's comment, NO COMMENT

Yes I would be interested in direct access CFDs.
Ideally would like per/share commission structure for UK. EU and US CFDs to allow
cost effective automated basket trading. Per transaction exchange costs
can be passed on as is.

Dear SamuelHogg:

Can you provide me the ISIN and/or CUSIP numbers for the shares you want to trade? Further on what exchange they are traded on, so I can check and reply back to you.

Dear SamuelHogg:

We do not support trading services to Platinum Mining(PMCI), Black Rock Oil(BLR) and Warthog(WHOG ). Rather we only support FTSE shares.

CFDs

Why would anyone want IB to provide these when they already offer direct access non-OTC marginable long and short positions in a large range of stock and futures markets?

It seems to me that you've already got what you want (only better) ...

IB Futures Coverage

All,
The lead-in to this thread says that this thread is for questions directed at, and answered by, IB. That's good because I'm considering closing my IB acount...

Now, that's not because I think IB are bad - far from it. If I close my IB account it will be done reluctantly. However, I just don't like the apparently limited futures coverage they offer. My trading has been switching towards futures over time and i keep finding that markets I want to trade aren't covered by IB - Cotton, Soy Beans, Pork bellies, NYBOT US Dollar, Cocoa, Live Cattle Options. And the list goes on...

I'm preparing to start testing trading strategies that will take me predominantly away from stocks into commodities. So, is IB going to be widening it's futures offerings any time soon or do I need to start looking at other brokers?


Thx,
D

Fundjunkie:

Interactive Brokers offers direct access to over 50 exchanges worldwide from a single account, currency and trading platform, respectfully. For example for futures solely, we support E-CBOT, CFE, CME (Globex), Eurex US, NYMEX, Montreal Exchange, Euronext (Belgium, France, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom), Eurex, Borsa Italiana, MEFF, ICE, SNFE, OSE.JPN, TSE.JPN, SGX and KSE.

Interactive Brokers strategy is to expand its coverage to new markets, so we can add new value for our clients. Shortly as an Interactive Brokers client you will be receiving a Communique confirming our new markets that we believe will be of interest to you. Please stay tuned. Sorry we cannot provide you more particulars as we cannot give to much away to our competitors.

Two questions for IB

(1) If my systems fail where can I ring IB to take some corrective action on my positions?

(2) Day/month/year statements are there but havnt yet received an e mail about this. Are these statements safe to use or could there be some adjustments that may come? e.g 2005 statements are there but there is as yet no e mail from IB. Can I use these statements?
