    I'm based in Switzerland and have been trading equity and index warrants for close to eight years. Has anybody any experience trading with IB in the Swiss (SWX, Virt-X) and German (Dax, EUWAX) markets ?

    Is it possible to trade all warrants that are listed on the SWX ? I went to the IB web page and there were only aobut 30 SWX warrants listed
    :confused: while more than 3000 are traded on the SWX.

    I also could not find any information about EUWAX. Is it possible to trade there using IB ?

    How fast is order execution in Europe, has anybody run into problems ?

    I also trade some exotic warrants (Knock-out and turbo warrants). I often get in and out of a position within minutes, so it is crucial that the system is reliable.

    Any input is higly appreciated :D

  2. Try posting on the IB bulletin board...sorry I know zippo about it. If you have an account with IB you might also open a ticket to ask...
