    Trading options?
  3. I hope there is something wrong, as my account isn't correct. I have a GBP/USD trade open that is nothing to do with me. Very strange.

    Excerpt of IB bulletin:

    To all traders:
    Wed Aug 23 10:37:12 2006 EST

    There is a new feature in the Account window that shows FX positions in a
    'contract' style view. This presentation is intended to be part of an
    upgrade to our FX trading services to allow traders to track their pnl for
    FX activity. The numbers you see represent all IDEAL and IDEALPRO trades
    executed in 2006.

    It seems this has caused some confusion amongst traders. We will roll back
    the presentation on the account window. You can refresh your account window
    by logging out and back in. We will re-expose the contract style view for
    FX activity on a new FX-trader page that will be released in the next few

    We apologize for any confusion this presentation in the account window may
    have caused.
