    I have a question about the IB account statment. Under the cash report there is "cash settling MTM" listed. What does that mean?

    At IB's website I found the following:
    "Cash Settling MTM shows mark-to-market gains and losses for Futures and CFDs, as well as Options that settle into cash."

    Now, are that gains/Losses that are already closed and how are they different to the "normal" closed trades (net trades)?

    Thanks and regards
