  3. 如何交易
  4. 在全球范围进行交易
  5. 拓展您IB经验的五个要点

 

 

1. 您的资金
存款&取款基本信息。所有转账都通过您的账户管理进行管理
存款
首先,通过您的账户管理 > 资金 > 资金转账 > 转账类型:“存款”创建一个存款通知(如何创建存款通知)。 第二步,通知您的银行进行电汇转账,在存款通知中提供详细银行信息。
取款
通过您的账户管理 > 资金 > 资金转账 > 转账类型:“取款”创建一个取款指令(如何创建取款指令
如果您通知要进行超出取款限额的取款,则会被视为异常取款,我们因此将需要匹配银行账户持有人和IB账户。如果目的地银行账户已被用作存款,那么取款将会被处理;否则,您必须联系客户服务并提供所需文件。
错误排查
存款:我的银行发出了资金,但我没有看到资金记入我的IB账户。可能的原因:
a) 资金转账需要1至4个工作日。
b) 存款通知缺失。您必须通过账户管理创建存款通知并向客户服务发送一条咨询单。
c) 修改详情缺失。转账详情中缺失您的姓名或IB账户号码。您必须联系您的银行索取完整的修改详情。
d) IB发起的ACH存款7个工作日内限额为10万美元。如果您开立的是初始要求为11万美元的投资组合保证金账户,最好选择电汇存款以减少您第一笔交易的等待时间。如果选择ACH,会需要等待近2周时间,或者可以选择临时升级至RegT。
取款:我已经请求了取款,但我没有看到资金记入我的银行账户。可能的原因:
a) 资金转账需要1至4个工作日。
b) 被拒。超出最大取款限额。请检查您账户的现金余额。注意,出于监管要求,存入资金时会有三天置存期,之后才可以被取出。
c) 您的银行退回了资金。可能是因为接收银行账户与汇款银行账户名称不匹配。

 

2. 设置您的账户以进行交易
现金与保证金账户的区别:如果您选择快速申请,默认您的账户类型为配备美国股票许可的现金账户。如果您想使用杠杆并以保证金交易,参见此处如何升级为RegT保证金账户
交易许可
为了能够交易特定国家的某一特定资产类别,您需要通过账户管理获得该资产类别的交易许可。请注意,交易许可是免费的。但您可能需要签署当地监管部门所要求的风险披露。如何请求交易许可

Welcome to Interactive Brokers

Overview: 

Now that your account is funded and approved you can start trading. The information below will help you getting
started as a new customer of Interactive Brokers.

  1. Your Money
  2. Configure your account to trade
  3. How to trade
  4. Trade all over the World
  5. Five points to enrich your IB experience

 

1. Your Money
Deposits & Withdrawals General Info. All transactions are administered through your secure Account Management
Deposits
First, you create a deposit notification through your Account Management > Funding > Fund Transfers > Transaction Type: “Deposit” How to create a deposit notification. The second step is to instruct your Bank to do the wire transfer with the bank details provided in your Deposit Notification.
Withdrawals
Create a withdrawal instruction via your secure Account Management > Funding > Fund Transfers > Transaction Type: "Withdrawals" How to create a withdrawal instruction
If you instruct a withdrawal over the Withdrawal limits, it will be considered an exceptional withdrawal and we will therefore need to match bank account holder and IB account. If destination bank account has been used for a deposit, withdrawal will be processed; otherwise, you must contact customer service and provide the documents needed.
Troubleshooting
Deposits: My bank sent the money but I do not see it credited into my IB account. Possible reasons:
a) A fund transfer takes 1-4 business days
b) A Deposit Notification is missing. You have to create it via your Account Management and send a ticket to Customer Service
c) Amending details are missing. Your name or IB account number is missing in the transfer details. You have to contact your bank and ask for the full amending details.
d) ACH initiated by IB is limited to 100k USD in a 7 business period. If you opened a Portfolio Margin account where the initial requirement is 110k, a wire deposit might be the better deposit option to reduce wait time for your first trade. If selecting ACH a wait time of almost 2 weeks or a temporary downgrade to RegT can be possible solutions.
Withdrawals: I have requested a withdrawal but I do not see the money credited to my bank account. Possible reasons:
a) A fund transfer takes 1-4 business days
b) Rejected. Over the max it can be withdrawn. Please check your account cash balance. Note that for regulatory requirements, when the funds are deposited, there is a 3 day holding period before they can be withdrawn.
c) Your bank returned the funds. Probably because receiving bank account and remitting bank account names do not match.

 

2. Configure your account to trade
Difference between Cash and Margin accounts: If you have chosen the FastTrack application, by default your account type is a cash account with US stock permission. If you would like to get leverage and trade on margin, here how to upgrade to a RegT Margin account

In order to be able to trade a particular asset class in a particular country, you need to get the trading permission for it via your Account Management. Please note that trading permissions are free. You might however be asked to sign risk
disclosures required by local regulatory authorities. How to Request Trading Permissions
Market Data
If you want to have market data in real-time for a particular product/exchange, you need to subscribe to a market data package charged by the exchange. How to subscribe to Market data
The Market data assistant will help you choose the right package. Please watch this Video explaining how it works.

4. Trade all over the World
IB accounts are multi-currency accounts. Your account can hold different currencies at the same time, this allows you to trade multiple products around the world from a single account.
Base Currency
Your base currency determines the currency of translation for your statements and the currency used for determining margin requirements. Base currency is determined when you open an account. Customers may change their base currency at any time through Account Management.
We do not automatically convert currencies into your Base currency
Currency conversions must be done manually by the customer. In this video you can learn how to do a currency conversion.
In order to open a position denominated in a currency that you do not have in your account, you have two possibilities:
A) Currency conversion.
B) IB Margin Loan. (Not available for Cash Accounts)
Please see this course explaining the mechanics of a foreign transaction.

Log In Account Management / AM Quick Start Guide / AM Users Guide
4. Secure Login System
To provide you with the highest level of online security, Interactive Brokers has implemented a Secure Login System (SLS) through which access to your account is subject to two-factor authentication. Two-factor authentication serves to confirm your identity at the point of login using two security factors: 1) Something you know (your username and password combination); and 2) Something you have (an IB issued security device which generates a random, single-use security code). As both knowledge of your username/password and physical possession of the security device are required to login to your account, participation in the Secure Login System virtually eliminates the possibility of anyone other than you accessing your account.

Depositing Canadian Dollars via Bill Payment

IB provides Canadian residents a variety of ways to deposit funds into their IB account including wire transfer, electronic funds transfer and Bill Payment.  Canadian Bill Payment is a particular form of electronic funds transfer which allows for the transfer of funds into your IB account via an online payment service provided by your financial institution (usually through a checking account). 

To initiate a Bill Payment you will first need to log into your online banking website, select Bill Payment and add Interactive Brokers Canada as a payee along with your IB account ID (typically begins with the letter 'U').  Depending upon your particular financial institution and whether IB is recognized as one of their program participants, your institution will likely indicate an expected delivery date of 1-2 business days for transfers. 

Once IB has been set up as a payee, you may initiate transfers through your bank by selecting IB as a recipient and establishing the payment (deposit) amount and delivery date. After instructing your bank to initiate the transfer, it's important that you log into your IB account and create a deposit notification.  This notification ensures that the funds will be properly matched and credited to your account upon arrival and not held in suspense.  To create a deposit notification, select the Funds Management and then Funds Transfers menu options from Account Management.  Then select Deposit Funds from the Transaction drop-down list, Bill Payment from the Method drop-down list and Proceed with Transaction from the Instruction drop-down list. You'll then be prompted to enter the amount of your deposit and the sending institution.

A key benefit to using Bill Payment is that funds are credited to your account immediately upon arrival and are available for withdrawal 3 business days thereafter.  This is in contrast to regular electronic funds transfers which are subject to a 4 business day hold prior to being credited to your account and have restrictions if withdrawn to an institution other than that from which the funds originated.  Most Canadian financial institutions offer the ability to remit funds via Bill Payment to Interactive Brokers Canada.

How to deposit funds to your Interactive Brokers account via a Check

Withdrawal restrictions applicable to assets transferred via ACATS?

Assets transferred to IB via ACATS are subject to a hold period of 10 business days, the count of which begins the day after the transfer has settled and ends at midnight of the 10th business day thereafter. Note that assets are often credited to an account holder’s equity and made available for trade prior to transfer settlement. The date at which a given ACATS deposit is eligible for withdrawal may be determined through the View Transaction History function within Account Management.

How can I check the status of funding transactions?

Overview: 

IBKR provides account holders with a tool that provides real-time updates and current status of all deposit and withdrawal transactions relating to both cash and positions which have taken place over the prior 45 calendar day period. This tool is made available through the secure Account Management application and may be accessed via the Transfer & Pay and then Transaction History menu options.

Display

By default, the Transaction History page shows all of your funding transactions for the past ten days. You can adjust that up to the past 90 days by adjusting the time slider. Click and drag the slider right or left to change the time. The page updates to display all of your funding transactions for the selected period.

By default, transactions are displayed by date in descending order. Change the sort order by clicking any column heading. To change the sort order from descending to ascending, click the column heading again. For example, if you want to view all deposits listed together, click the Type column heading.

Click the Configure (gear) icon to configure the transaction history to display additional information, including Account ID, Account Title and Method.

To view transaction details, click anywhere on a transaction row. Details for the transaction appear in a popup window. From the transaction detail popup window, you can perform any of the following operations:

  • Cancel any transaction that has a status of Pending by clicking Cancel. Click Yes to confirm the cancellation.
  • Print the transaction details by clicking Print.
  • Stop payment on a check withdrawal.
  • Close the popup window by clicking the X icon in the upper corner.
    • Note: DO NOT CLICK THE CANCEL BUTTON UNLESS YOU WANT TO CANCEL THE TRANSACTION.

Search and Filter

Search for a specific transaction by Account ID, Account Title, Transaction Type (deposit, withdrawal, etc.), Transaction Method (check, wire, etc.), or Status by typing the search criteria in the Search field, and then clicking the Search (magnifying glass) icon. Search words are not case-sensitive.

Filter the transaction history by Transaction Type, Method or Status.

Print and Export

To export your transaction history to an XLS file (Microsoft Excel-compatible), click the Export icon located in the upper right corner of the page. You are prompted to save or download the .XLS page to your computer (depending on your web browser). Once saved, you can open that file in Microsoft Excel.

 

How to Initiate ACH Transfers

Background: 

Automated Clearing House (ACH) deposits/withdrawals may be made to your IBKR account from and to your bank. The method referred to as ‘ACH Initiated by Us’ means your transfer request will be automatically processed through a message sent to your bank by IBKR.  Prior to using this method, you will need to create a standing instruction through Transfer and Pay which authorizes IBKR and your bank to electronically transfer funds between the two accounts. You will be asked to verify your bank in one of two ways:

  • Traditional: We will issue test transactions in the form of small debit and credit amounts to your bank account. Note that this request does not actually move your funds.
  • Instant: You will be asked to select your bank and enter your username and password to verify your credentials immediately.
    • Note: Instant ACH verification uses a third-party service

Once established, this transfer method can be used for future deposit and withdrawal requests. 

Initiating an ACH Transfer: 

  1. On the Transfer & Pay > Transfer Funds menu, after you select the transaction type, currency and the transaction method, you enter and save your bank information just as you would for any other deposit or withdrawal method. Note that you do not enter an amount.
  2. For ACH withdrawals, as part of the bank information you enter, you are asked to enter a bank information name and select the Bank Information Usage. This selection tells us if you would like the ability to reuse this bank information for both withdrawals and deposits (Debit & Credit), or only withdrawals (Credit).
  3. You will be asked to verify your bank in one two ways:

Traditional

  1. Select Traditional Verification                                               
  2. Enter a Nickname and choose a Usage Type
  3. Select the Bank Country and Bank Account Type
  4. Enter the Bank Account Number and Confirm the Bank Account Number below
  5. Click the Search button to find the Receiving Bank
  6. Search for your bank and enter the ABA Routing Number
  7. You will be asked to confirm your request via electronic signature and security token authentication which authorizes both IBKR and your bank to act upon any transfer requests you provide through IBKR;
  8. Within 1-3 business days, two random credits (deposits) each less than one dollar and a corresponding debit (withdrawal) will be issued to your bank account.
  9. You will need to monitor your bank account for these transactions as they will be needed to confirm this funding instruction. Note that these transactions may take place on different days.
  10. Once you have these amounts, log back in to Client Portal and from the Pending Requests menu option select the Confirm Amount link adjacent to your instruction enter the credit amounts.
  11. Once you have entered the correct amounts, you may use the ACH instruction for deposit and withdrawal transfers.
     

 

Instant

Instant Account Verification (IAV) allows IBKR Clients the opportunity to have bank and account information verified instantly during the account set-up process. IAV is now presented to clients as an option in addition to the traditional process of verifying bank and account information which sends small dollar value transactions back and forth over the course of a few days.

  1. Select Instant Verification
  2. Enter a Nickname and choose a Usage Type
  3. Click the Verify Bank Account button
  4. Select your bank from the pop-up window
  5. Enter the login credentials for your online banking account, and click Next

c) Enter the Response String returned into the Passcode field.

 10. Click Continue.

Success! You may use this transfer method for future deposit and Withdrawal transfers.

Be Careful…
For steps 4 and 6 above, the following points are important to keep in mind:

Step 4- When logging into your online banking site, be sure the username and password is entered properly. For example, case sensitivity, middle initials, etc. may be a part of your username and password. An error message will appear if there is an issue.

Step 6- For security reasons, the name of the bank Account Holder must match the name on the IBKR account. If the names do not match, the following message will appear.

Note that IBKR does not charge any fee for ACH deposits and accounts are afforded one free withdrawal request per month.  Also note that ACH deposits are subject to a 4 business day credit hold after arrival prior to being credited to your account.  In addition,  if funds are withdrawn to a bank other than the originating bank, a 44-business-day withdrawal hold period will be applied.

 

 

Why does IBKR place a hold on the funds deposited via check when my bank has already debited the funds from my account?

Overview: 

 

IBKR, like any bank client, is subject to the hold periods that banks by regulation are allowed to place upon check deposits. While these regulations generally provide for full availability to be provided within 2 to 5 business days, banks in certain instances may not make the funds available until the 11th business day, and a key factor in determining the availability timeframe is whether the check is drawn upon an institution whose Federal Reserve check processing office is local relevant to IBKR’s bank (which is determined based upon the routing transit number or ABA bank code listed on the check).  As it is not operationally feasible to distinguish and track the clearance of individual checks given a large and geographically diverse client base, IBKR has opted to use a uniform hold period of 6 business days for check deposits (with funds made available on the 7th business day).  This timeframe had been selected based upon a review of historical data which suggests that the risk of non-payment of funds to be sufficiently minimal after that period.

 

To minimize any delays associated with the receipt and crediting of deposits, IBKR strongly recommends that clients deposit funds via wire transfer as this process introduces few of the credit risks or operational overhead typically associated with checks.  In addition, funds deposited in this manner are immediately credited to your account upon arrival and are not subject to any processing fee by IBKR.

Does a deposit subject to a "Credit Hold” accrue credit interest during the hold period?

Overview: 

The answer depends upon the method of deposit.  In the case of deposits made via ACH, any interest accrues from the date the deposit arrives through the four-business day credit hold period after which it is credited to the account.  In the case of check deposits other than Bank Checks, no interest is accrued during the credit hold period.  Bank Checks and wire transfers are credited to the account effective upon receipt and are therefore not subject to any credit hold.

Interest paid to you varies with market conditions.  For information regarding the amount of interest currently paid on credit balances see www.interactivebrokers.com/interest
