    For accounting reasons, I am interested in this, an account held in a single currency.

    I dont really understand how they do it, wether they convert on each day or each trade...

    Could anyone tell what is the real cost of this for scalping stocks ?
    How much does it add, per share ?


  2. as I understand margin interest is applied only to overnight borrowing (losses too ...)

    otherwise gains/losses can be transferred using their FX system as triggered
  3. Do traders pay interest on intraday margin usage at IB (borrowing during trading hours only)?
