Couple of questions about IBKR

Recommended Posts

So I seem to have two account numbers Both are similar with only 1 number differing the fist number after the U.  I am trying to connect DAS to IBRK and am not sure which to use.

I opened a margin account but dont seem to have any margin ie. my cash value is the same as my buying power. can anyone explain this to me?

Also has is it just me or is IBKR customer service not great?  I was flirting with a couple of other brokers and they called me a few times to see if I needed any help setting up my account.

Ive sent messages to IBRK and got no response and also rang them and was on hold for 30 min so I just gave up.

Hi Yenren,

Did you manage to solve the margin issue? I'm preparing to go live and have noticed the same thing on my account?

Thanks,

Matt.

make sure you have set a margin account in account settings immagine.png.9817382efdd18eb3ccb2c6f0224e9e39.png

and that you have at least $2500 funded and check the BP on the web by clicking Details in the Portfolio
