IB Increased Margins

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by Kalparker, Jun 23, 2010.

  1. So IB is removing intraday margin. Also they say they are raising futures margin. Anyone know the amounts?
  2. Where is IB saying this?

    All I see different about futures on the IB website is: "Due to market conditions and until further notice, Intra-day margin benefit rules for currency futures have temporarily been suspended."
  3. Yeah they sent that, but they also said they will raise margin levels for futures by 25%.
  4. was this an email? I see nothing in email or the site
  5. I got it as a message through tws. I'm guessing they are taking effect on july 1st.
  6. When I see this I feel more secure ... the fewer people maxing out their margin the better. Of course I didn't see the new margin rates :eek: :eek:
  7. I see no TWS bulletin, have no messages in the message center and no email about any futures margin changes.

    Maybe IB will let me know next week. :confused:
  8. Don't see it in TWS, message center, or email. I think they're just raising YOUR margin.
