I've called IB before on this but was never able to figure it out. How on earth do you fix all the forex problems? If you trade the GBL (EUREX) and then try to convert everything in dollars, in the FX Portfolio section of the "Account" tab, it opens a "Virtual FX Position" (see attachment), which as far as I know can make you lose a lot of money - it's like a regular forex trade, as powerful as a future or even more (depending on the amount obviously). However, if you go to the Portfolio tab and close that "Virtual FX Position", it works and closes it. Now, once again, you have a problem with that other menu, called "Market Value - Real FX Balance". Instead of having all dollars, now you have euros as well. If you convert the euros, to have all dollars, once again you are opening a "Virtual FX Position". If you close that position, you have euros again in "Market Value - Real FX Balance". On and on... it seems that once you make the mistake of trading a product in euros, you can never have a zero balance in euros and a closed "Virtual FX Position". Anyone knows how to solve this problem? My dream all these years has been to have a "real fx balance" with just dollars, and no open "virtural fx positions".
