    Hi,

    Simple question, is it possible to trade CFD's (US stocks) through the TWS API? I am in the U.K. so I have access to them.

    I haven't opened an account yet, wanted to know prior as it may dissuade me.

    To be clear, CFDs are not available for US residents and only via IBUK.

    For US residents and stocks, if you're looking for a similar type product, look no further than single stock futures trading on One Chicago.
