    I stopped out of a position yesterday morning and the funds still are not available for trade. How long is this supposed to take?


  2. have you contacted IB today to ask them that question?

    this site can get you some opinions on IB etc

    but one must really contact their reps directly

    via email , chat online or phone for the answer you seek

    I tried calling, it's after hours.
  4. did you fund with check...are you USA?

  5. If you are a non-margin account, it's likely trade date +3 before the funds are avaiable for trading.

    If you are a margin account, it should be available on the spot.

    Best to ask IB.

    Thanks for the clarification. It's a non-margin acct.
