√úbersicht: 

Please be advised that IB has increased the initial margin rates to 100% on low capitalization stocks (currently defined as companies with less than$250 million in market capitalization). The maintenance margin increases will occur in stages starting with an increase to 50% beginning after the EU market close on Friday, January 25th, 2013 and will be implemented as follows:

Monday January 28th, 2013: Maintenance Margin - 50%

Thursday January 31st,2013: Maintenance Margin - 75%

Tuesday February 2nd, 2013: Maintenance Margin - 100%

The list of stocks which are subject to this margin increase can be found on the following page:

Upon implementation, any of the incremental margin increases may result in a margin deficit in the account. A margin deficit implies that an account becomes subject to automated liquidation. Please carefully review the current positions within your account and adjust the portfolio accordingly.
