I certainly don't want details of your network configuration, I just want to know whether my orders would go to the UK or the US, fairly innocuous information I would have thought. I'm not yet a client but this is one thing I'll be taking into account when deciding whether or not to open an IB account.

Sim Mode

I have recently opened an account with IB and need to establish if TWS has a simulation mode. Please advise.

Yes it does - they'll email you details when your funds have cleared in your account. If not, chase them up for it.

Can somebody please tell me the IB symbol for FTSE cash? I've searched many times on the symbol lookup...

Also, can an IB representative tell me if I need UK stocks trading permissions to receive this index, and Tick-LSE, Trin-LSE.

I've just subscribed to LSE non-pro level one for £10 per month to receive this data, it seems strange I may have to wait for two days to get it when I have no interest in trading stocks.

Thanks for any help, I would have gone direct with these queries, but the ticket system is down and chat help is not working for me.

You need to open a Paper Trading account as per the instructions on the following link:

http://www.interactivebrokers.com/en...p?ib_entity=uk

As Jack O'Clubs said you will not be able to access this until your main account is approved and funded. The reason is that it inherits the same attributes as the main trading account including access to all of the market data, which in many cases is chargeable.

However in the meantime if you want to get used to TWS etc they also have a demo account:

You can practice on 15 minute delayed data, but it might not include the particular markets you are interested in
