    I am trying out IB's demo. I can not find any of the minor or exotic pairs on their FXTrader. How can I find them please, or do they only offer majors?

    Also, anyone knows when one opens an account with IB and, say, I want to transfer in GBP, and then transfer it to USD after it gets to my IB account, will they give me the prevailing spot rate? Other brokers (or sending banks) rip off by taking a couple of hundred pips which is ridiculous IMO! :mad: I hope that's not the case with IB!

    I noticed that IB charges 0.0001 of the amount transfered using IDEAL but I just want to make 100% sure that the money transfered will not lose any value!
