Thanks a lot GC1,
I will try that. It is a bit slow, but when placing the stop order speed is not that critical.
Will let you know if it works.
I believe the stop distance can be configurated for each simbol (which can be very useful), I will try to figure out what the 1.000 away means

I am interested in opening an account with IB and have already submitted the online application. However, I have some questions about the requested document. I sent an inquiry using the online form and also created a "WebTicket", but I have not received any response for almost 2 weeks now. It certainly doesn't make a good first impression toward IB. Does anyone find it troublesome to contact them when having trade problems?

I will leave my questions here in case someone at IB is more willing to answer them here. I would be thankful if anyone who has been in similar situation helps answer some of them.

- I need to submit a proof of address. However, all my documents are in Thai language as I am living in Thailand. Do I need to make a translated copy? If so, what is the procedure for the translation? If I have my bank in Thailand issue an English statement, would it be acceptable?
- The online page shows that I should submit the W-8 Addendum. Do I need one? If so, where can I get the form?
- Can I make a wire transfer to/from a bank account not in my name? What about ACH?
- Would there be a problem if I delete and re-create the funding instruction for the initial deposit?

Hello. I can't trade TF contracts (e-mini Rusell 2000). I don't get data from IB. I folow the same steps as to trade YM, NQ or ES, but I never get TF data. Do you know of any reason why this could be so? Thanks.

You have to subscribe to InterContinental and New York Board of Trade (1 USD a month) in Account Management on IB web site.

To InteractiveBrokers:

CME Group to Launch Forex E-Micro Contracts

The E-Micro are however not tradavle; I see bid/ask but when trying to trade, I don't get margin information and the report is refused.

I tyhink there is no reason to block these cash settled contracts for your customers.

These micro futures are a great tool to make some money, but also to limit the risk.

Can you look into thise contracts?

Thats got to be high on IB's list of things to provide. They're 1/10th the size of standard contracts so they cut nicely into forex territory ... thanks for the heads up wmbelg.

There are now also mini VIX contracts (symbol VM).

Multiplier 100.


So one VM is now around 4000$ compared to 40000$ for the regurlar contract.

By the way: VM is already trdable.
