I may take a job that would change my status from individual to professional. Beyond a change in some data access fees, how will my IB service change? I have this vague impression from somewhere that IB will send my employer a monthly summary of my trading activity. Is that so? I ask because, while I have absolutely no problem obeying relevant regulations, firm-specific rules can often be egregious. For example, requiring prior approval for all trades - which can take hours. Also, there may be outright bans on derivatives and some arbitrary restrictions on 'short-term trading.' And I strongly prefer that my investment/trading activity is not a subject of banter at the water-cooler that feeds into workplace politics. Would like to hear from IB customers who also have 'professional status.' Also happy to hear from IB.
