I was looking forward to IB opening in canada, but then I had the very bad news that I cannot daytrade if anytime my cash balance falls below 25k. (the law they say) Even if you put 25k in (US dollars) if say your account falls to 24.99k, then they woulkd freeze your account. (what the rep said when I called in) This is BS, smalltime daytrader like me are screwd. I have only 10k capital to work with, but with margin it would be more then enough. for my style of trading. Is there another broker that would accept canadiens and allow a 10k capital account? IB has been a huge dissapointment, and I am again looking for a broker that will take canadien and has a commission comparable to IB.
