    Any idea if one is able to connect and trade from his IB account from La Havana in Cuba - a non US account and non US citizen ?

    Thanks Trendlover, from you link I noted one can you use wifi from some hotels with their laptop, which is a good beginning. Yet besides the safety issue, I also wonder if the connection is good enough (not to daytrade, but to place a couple of important orders if necessary) and most importantly wether IB tolerate trading from Cuba, or if one is to face some kind of system limitation after trying to log in ?

    Anyone here has ever traded from Cuba, even via different brokers ?
  3. Fidel, I told you before, daytrading is a loser's game. Stick to swing trading like your brother... :D

    Didn't work for me. IB will detect the IP coming from Cuba and block any access to TWS.

    Thanks JJ90 for the feedback, that's the kind of stuff I was afraid of - better not go with some volatile positions open .
