IB: SPI - S&P/ASX 200 Index (Australia) - Margin error

Discussion in 'Order Execution' started by eveningtrader, Jul 17, 2008.

  1. IB home page said intraday margin is $10,000, but when try to place an order, TWS say margin require $100,000.
  2. When I go to place an order with 885 it says initial margin 12,162.96 and maintenance 9,733.64 which I believe is correct.

    Everything is OK here. Margin calculations not depend on TWS version.
  4. I think it's the front end. It crashed earlier. Everything works fine now after uninstall, reboot, and reinstall the front end.
