Wonder if anyone can help with this. If I open an account with IB do you have to keep the $2000 minimum in the account to trade or the minimum margin for a given instrument?

christoff, you must maintain $2,000 in your account in order to: trade futures or SHORT stocks.

To go LONG stocks you can go below $2,000 in your account (I think $100 is minimum).
