International stocks and IB

Discussion in 'Interactive Brokers' started by killATwill, Nov 1, 2005.

  1. I have a normal US IB account. By default, am I allowed to make LSE and TSX trades, or will I need sign additional documents? Also, will I first need to convert my us dollars into pounds and candos to execute those trades via IB?

  2. You can trade any product that is legal for us citizens. The IB web site lists the items not allowed. IB automatically converts the currency, you do nothing. It's an amazing system.
