IB's is pleased to announce that IDEALPRO is now available from 19:30 EST to 17:00 EST covering 21.5 hours of the day. Within a 4-6 weeks we expect to bring this close to full 24 hour availability. In addition, we will be reducing the margin for [non-base] currency assets substantially and adding additional liquidity providers to the platform. IB acts as a pure broker in FX. Unlike most brokers, we do not participate as the counterparty in the spread because it is obvious to us that taking the other side of our clients' orders is a conflict of interest, and not in the clients' interests. Our goal for IDEALPRO is to provide the fastest, least compromising FX brokerage service. We hope you agree with us.
