    I want to reset my IB paper trading account back to one mil(or lower if its possible).So at the end of the year its easy to tell how I have done.Does anyone know how to do this.I logged into account management and went to paper trading where it states my paper account is active but there was no way to alter anything about it.:confused:

    ps,I got it up $600k trading futures but I still dont have the bottle to use the strategy in my real account.:(
  2. Go to trading access in a/c management and reset is there.

    osho,as I stated in my opener,I did exactly that.There is nothing that can be reset there.Since you obviously have done it,could you please be specific about what is missing from my page.The page states my user name and account number and states the account is open.There is nothing else.Please tell me what else you see in your account.
  4. look under trading access in account management

    Make sure you are logged in to your paper account.
