IB Futures traders: check your monthly statement to see if ST vs LT gains is wrong

    got my monthly statement from IB for november today. i only trade futures and, of course, it is always broken down as LT vs ST gains. this month, the statement is showing ALL gains as short term gains- obviously a BIG problem.

    i called them and they told me to submit a trouble ticket- i guess to go with the other trouble tickets dating back months that they haven't responded to. don't have a lot of confidence that this one will be any different.

    anyway, i can't imagine this only happened to my account, so check yours and please post whether it's correct or not.
  2. I got the same problem.

    I wonder why those programmers at IB
    mess up with statement format

    Just leave the format alone.

    My monthly statement is a mess. Trades can't be viewed, columns cut off. May be a Leopard issue, I suspect. Never had this particular problem before.
