    arggggggggg!! I am tearing my hair out trying to get some info from IB... Someone help??

    I am going to open an IB account with £3000 GBP I live within the UK, (I used to have a trading account but I converted my cash to USD) IB have this new base currency option where I can have my cash in GBP & apperntly trade US/ NASDAQ stocks with it, is this true?

    & How does the margin work do I still get *2 in GBP, or would I have to convert it to USD to get margin........

    & I am aware of the only 4* a week trading under 25k, I still get *2 margin tho right?

    I really don't know help!:confused: :) :( :D :eek: :( :p :confused:
