IB Margin Call Question

  1. Hi,

    I have an account with IB that I don't use anymore, its a Reg T account, and decided to withdraw funds last week (GBP). Bringing the balance close to zero.

    I have no open positions at all, yet I get a margin call on friday telling me they have liquidated my positions and sold £4950 GBP.

    My account is now -£4950. Can anyone tell me why this has happened and what I can do about it? Is this a mistake considering I have no positions open?

    Thanks in Advance.

    had the same message when i transfered all my funds back home... dont remember what was the explanation, but it was nothing to worry about...
