IB Intraday Margin's gone for a few days.


Senior member
Just a heads up to look at your exposure. IB are obviously concerned that risks are higher again - fasten your seatbelts.

IMPORTANT NOTICE regarding Intraday Margin

In light of the market volatility and the continuing turmoil in
financial services stocks, IB will eliminate intraday margin
reductions. Commencing at 10:30 P.M. EST today, contracts which
utilize value-at-risk margin models such as SPAN, Eurex, or TIMS in
the commodity sub-account. Traders may consult the account window in
the Trader Work Station to see what the overnight margin will be. We
expect that intraday margin reductions will remain suspended for
subsequent trading sessions and we will make further announcements as
market conditions develop.

Regardless of the likelihood of large, rapid changes in market
conditions, we recommend that traders examine their portfolios to
consider their exposure under extreme-move scenarios.
