    There are so many threads on IB that I I no longer no where to post. So I'm starting a new thread which I'll come back to from time to time with upcoming news...

    So here goes:

    As of tomorrow, all accounts with over 25K in equity will receive 4:1 margin all the time.

    Great news. I hope that the Universal account comes out soon after the beta testing is completed.
  3. Thanks Def, we really appreciate your up to date comments on the happenings at IB!
    Keep it up :)

    margin leverage @4:1 for account over 25k isn't a news...it has been there since long in any brokerage

    I'm not impressed with the postings...anyway, good try

    I am thinking of opening an account with Interactive Brokers. Their server seems to be slow. Has that been a problem? Also, how secure are the funds placed with Interactive Brokers compared to say Schwab or Etrade? rmj.

    Thanks Def !

    Please keep the info coming ...

    I get more info from listening to you than from the website

    It's amazing how rude people (on the Internet) can be when they don't have to look you in the face ...
