Checking Maintenance Requirements of Stocks pre-market: IB CLIENTS ONLY!

Recommended Posts

It's possible to create a hotkey in DAS that will allow you to check the margin requirements of a particular stock before actually buying/shorting the stock. Please note, this is for IB clients only!

via hotkey in DAS


If you enter the symbol in the montage then press the hotkey configured for above, it will launch.

If there's no value then it's standard 25% for long and 30% for short.

This helps to know to ensure you do not use all of your buying power before taking a position.

For example: CBAY has 100 so just straight equity.
