    Want to check whether I understand this correctly.

    It appears that as a retail trader residing in Australia, I can't trade on margin:

    Bottom of page says:
    Due to regulatory restrictions, Interactive Brokers does not currently offer margin lending to natural persons who are residents of Australia

    If true then IB account is pretty useless in Australia. I can only trade on a few pairs and cannot trade on margin.

    Am I reading this right?

    contact some other broker
    that may be IB specific company policy.
