Thanks for the info , call me old fashioned but I am some what nervous about sending £ overseas, I'd like to knock on their door if and when I had to, and with GNI based on the other side of London they seem within reach, perhaps I am over cautious. I would be interested to hear if anyone else has qualms about overseas brokers/international accounts etc..
There is a London office if you feel the need to bang on their door :cheesy:
I have no problems sending money overseas anymore, it seems you have to these days. The only problem is that the UK banks charge you for sending the money
I can understand your concerns, but once you've done it a couple of times it becomes easy.
I would say that any UK broker wil charge you heavily for trading the US
There is nothing wrong with the IB platform "if" people can be bothered to learn how to use it to its full potential. But I am happy for the "point and click" brigade to constantly be at a disadvantage in their order execution compared to me.
