Trading UK stocks using IB's Web Trader

  1. Hi, does anybody know if it's possible to use Interactve Brokers 'Web Trader' to trade UK stocks?

    I'm in the office and our firewall doesn't allow the full-blown IB TWS to run on our network. But, I can run their web interface (Web Trader). I've used it to successfully trade US stocks & options but when I enter a UK stock, such as HBOS, whilst it recognises the stock in the 'Edit Market View' tab, it doesn't show any prices for the stock or any way of trading it.

    Has anybody else out there managed to trade UK stocks on IB's Web Trader?

  2. Doh! Scrap that request, I wasn't subscribed to LSE data!
