    I've finished completing the steps to open an IB account, and can log in now. but I dont really know what to do next. There doesnt seem to be any instructions.

    I remembered reading something about account approval, so do I just wait for them to approve the account opening?

    Right now, there's nothing in the account and when I log in, it says Trading persmissions -- completed, Market data -- to be completed. and that's about it.

    What are the next steps? and how long does it take? hope some of you ib guys can assist, just want to know my timetable coz I'm moving from datek, and it seems to be taking quite some time for any progress, or if any at all (maybe its just my fault).

  2. Just wait, they will come to you soon ...
  3. I was told to wait for an confirmation email before wirring the $. It took a few days in my case. Just like trading, wait for it to come to you, don't go chasing it. :p

    Cheers!! :)
