Free Riding Rule

In a cash account, an investor must pay for the purchase of a security (meaning, the trade must settle) prior to selling that security. If an investor buys a security and then sells that same security without paying for the security in full by settlement date, the investor is considered to be “free riding.” Accounts that commit free riding violations will be restricted for 90 days, during which time the account can only purchase securities using settled funds.

Free riding examples that would be considered a violation at Interactive Brokers

Example A:

1) On T, the account has settled cash of $10,000

2) On T, the account buys ABC for $10,000

3) On T+1, the account sells ABC and buys $10,000 of XYZ

4) The customer sells the XYZ shares without depositing sufficient funds to pay for the purchase of XYZ in full

 

Example B:

1) On T, the account has fully paid for stock in ABC and no excess cash

2) On T, the account sells $10,000 of ABC

3) On T, the account buys $10,000 of XYZ

4) On T+1, the account sells the XYZ shares without depositing sufficient funds to pay for the purchase of XYZ in full

 

The end of day surveillance process would consider both of these scenarios to be free riding violations, which would restrict the account to only purchase using settled funds for 90 days. IB has put certain controls in place to help prevent free riding violations.

 

常見問題- 轉換為以IBUK作為持有經紀商

 

一般問題

 
問:將發生什麼變化?

答: IB將擴大由IB UK清算和持有的客戶活動範圍,以包括某些當前由IB LLC處理的業務。目前,除實體商品(如黃金、白銀)和未在交易所掛牌的差價合約(CFD)外,IB UK通過IB LLC清算所有客戶活動。為區分由IB英國清算的和轉介給IB LLC處理的IB英國的活動,我們創建了一個稱為IBUKL的內部記賬賬戶,用於記錄IB英國的活動。該IBUKL賬戶將被用於清算和持有更廣泛的產品類型,包括股票、ETF、期權、期貨、期貨期權和外匯。

 
問:為什麼要這麼處理?

答: IB客戶群既包括美國賬戶也包括非美國賬戶,正傾向於變得更為國際化。目前很大一部分非美國客戶群的活動在美國經紀自營商IB LLC處清算、持有並託管(除CFD、實物金屬及所有通過IB印度和IB日本賬戶處理的活動),將部分活動轉移到IBUKL具有很大優勢,因規管結構更接近於客戶所在地。

這些優勢包括能將客戶的非美國商品和證券頭寸整合進同一個賬戶部分、通過頭寸對沖和應用基於風險的保證金計算方法享受更有利的保證金、通過合併當前不同項目下的現金餘額來降低借款成本/提高利息收入、以及盡可能減少美國稅務的報告義務。
 
 
問:IB UK和IBUKL有什麼區別?

答:盈透證券(英國)有限公司(“IB UK”)是一家由英國行為監管局(FCA)授權在英國運營的經紀商。相比之下,IBUKL不是法律實體,而是一種內部的記錄或標記慣例,用於指定通過IB UK交易的客戶業務子項目。目前,該活動僅包括由IB英國清算且作為對手方的場外產品,包括非交易所掛牌的CFD和實體商品(即黃金和白銀)。

 

問:貴公司計劃如何推出產品?

答:一開始,我們將向已有的IBUKL產品服務範圍添加非美國股票指數產品(即以同一種貨幣交付的期貨和期權)。這包括FTSE、CAC、恆生、日經及DAX等指數。我們將為這些產品創建一個新的“國際股票指數”許可,並向新客戶和合格原有客戶提供。合格原有客戶包括有期權權限、以及在過去12個月中持有頭寸或開展過頭寸交易的非美國賬戶。這些原有客戶將自動獲得該許可。

非美國股票指數產品轉換完成後,我們將按照以下順序擴大涵蓋產品的範圍:外匯、其他期貨及非美國股票。

 

問:開立了IBUKL賬戶的客戶是否會同時擁有IB LLC的賬戶?
答:在大多數情況下可能會。如果客戶僅交易由IBUKL賬戶清算和持有的產品,理論上他們無需開立IB LLC賬戶。有其他頭寸的客戶將保留或需開立IB LLC賬戶。

 

問:IBUKL賬戶會像IB LLC賬戶一樣有多個部分嗎?

答:不會。IB LLC賬戶下的多個部分反映了美國二元分化的監管結構,即證券產品由證券交易委員會(SEC)監管、而大宗商品則由商品期貨交易委員會(CFTC)監管。除了聯合監管的個股期貨以外,CFTC或SEC的法規對另一個監管機構管轄的賬戶中的產品的清算或保證金要求均不作規定。比如CFYC和SEC的客戶保護規則,儘管兩者的目的相似,但應用不同;此類規則旨在隔離一定金額的資產,以便償還與賬戶的證券或商品板塊相對應的權利主張,但僅以單個部分的潛在主張為限。

IB UK的主要監管方英國行為監管局(FCA)同時監管證券和商品,所有IBUKL頭寸將被放置在一個賬戶部分中。


問:IBUKL賬戶中的頭寸將適用何種保證金方法?
答:頭寸不適用美國Reg. T保證金要求,而是適用基於風險的(VAR)方法。初期,當新產品被遷移至IBUKL賬戶,本地交易所/清算方法(通常為SPAN)將被沿用,賬戶的保證金要求將是多種方法計算結果的加總。未來,IB將對整個賬戶使用統一的保證金計算方法,即基於IB當前獨有的投資組合保證金計算模型。

 

問:需要簽署額外的披露聲明或協議嗎?在哪裡可以看到?

答:對於由IBUK持有產品的IBUK客戶,新的客戶協議可在IB網站的產品與服務>表格與披露板塊找到。

 

 
問:我能否在賬戶間劃轉資金?
 
答:由於IBLLC和IB UK是獨立的法律實體,多餘資金無法自動在兩個賬戶間轉移,除非是為了滿足保證金要求。在某些情況下,IB會自動轉移所需的資金,以滿足IBLLC和IB UK賬戶的保證金要求。賬戶管理中剩餘資金劃轉選項仍將有效,但僅會影響IBLLC賬戶。

 

問:在資產轉移期間及轉移後利息怎麼計算?
 
答:在IBLLC持有現金餘額的客戶將繼續依據其在證券和商品賬戶中持有的現金餘額分別計算利息。在IB UK持有現金餘額的客戶只有一個現金餘額,利息都根據這個餘額計算。
 
 

客戶保護

 
問:IB UK賬戶能為我提供何種保護?
 
答: IB UK是英國金融服務補償計劃(“FSCS”)成員。補償標準會不斷變化,有關當前補償標準的詳情,請參考FSCS網站www.fscs.org.uk/
 
 
問:我從哪裡可以獲得有關客戶保護的更多信息?
 
答:您可參考知識庫文章KB2012了解有關客戶保護的更多信息。
 
 
問:IB UK是否提供高於行業標準的額外保護?
 
答: IB UK不提供高於FSCS標準的額外保護。
 
 
問:勞埃德(Lloyds)的保險是否也覆蓋IB UK的賬戶?
 
答:不覆蓋。倫敦勞埃德保險公司的某些保險人提供高於SIPC標準的保險範圍;但不適用於IBUK持有經紀商持有的產品。

 
問:如果變更賬戶後對我的違約保障會變差,我為什麼還要變更賬戶?
 
答:將資產託管在IB UK有多項好處。這些好處包括能將客戶的非美國商品和證券頭寸整合進同一個賬戶部分、通過頭寸對沖和應用基於風險的保證金計算方法享受更有利的保證金、通過合併當前不同項目下的現金餘額來降低借款成本/提高利息收入、以及盡可能減少美國稅務的報告義務。
 
 
問:我能否選擇繼續使用IBLLC賬戶以便享受SIPC的保護?
 
答:目前,IB想要將某些產品組遷移至IB UK,因此,所有持有相關產品組的客戶將被遷移至IB UK。將來這些產品可能可以通過IBLLC持有,但目前尚不可以。
 
 
問:IB UK破產而IBLLC不破產的情況可能發生嗎?

答:理論上可能,但我們認為這種情況不會出現。 IB LLC和IB UK都是同一家母公司盈透證券集團有限公司(Interactive Brokers Group LLC)的全資子公司。成立獨立實體主要是出於應對監管的目的,我們相信這兩者中任何一家都不會破產,母公司更不可能只讓其中一家破產。此外,由於IB約85%的股權是管理層和員工持有的,所有者出於經濟利益的考慮會極力保護其投資、不致讓這兩家實體破產。

 

 

 

Can I have more than two individuals on a joint account?

IB offers three types of joint accounts: Tenants with Rights of Suvivorship, Tenancy in Common and Community Property. Each of these joint account types is limited to two account holders.

Applicants interested in opening an account with muliple owners in excess of two may consider the corporate, partnrship, limited liability company or unincorporated legal structure account types offered by IB.  Note that documentation establishing proof of formation and address are generally required at the point of application.

Converting From a Single to Joint Account

The process of adding a second owner to an existing single account for purposes of converting to a joint account is outlined below:

1.       As the joint account structure differs from that of the individual in terms of account holder information required, legal agreements and, in certain cases, taxpayer status, direct conversion is not supported and a new joint account application must be completed online.
 
The joint application may be initiated online from the single account by logging into Account Management and clicking the Settings and Account Settings options followed by clicking the gear icon next to the words "Create, Move, Link or Partition an Account" in the Configuration section. This process will allow you to retain your existing user name, password and security device for purposes of operating the joint account. Be sure to request trading permissions and, if necessary, margin status, sufficient to maintain the positions currently carried in your individual account.  Note that if your account is managed by a financial advisor or you are a client of an introducing broker, please contact your advisor or broker to initiate the new application (you may need to make arrangements with your advisor or broker for fees that have accrued but not yet paid if the individual account closes).
 
The joint account application requires Compliance review and approval and documentation evidencing the identity and address of the second account holder may be required. If this is the case, notice as to the required documents and how to submit will be provided at the conclusion of the online application.
 
 
2.       Once you have received an email confirming approval of the joint account application, send a request from your Message Center authorizing IB to manually transfer positions from your single to joint account. Prior to submitting the request you should make sure to close all open orders in the individual account to ensure that no executions take place following the transfer.
 
Due to the manual steps and scheduling required, you should allow a minimum of one week after joint account approval and submitting your request for the transfer to take effect. 

 

IMPORTANT NOTES
 
1.       Note that exchange regulations preclude ownership transfer of derivative contracts such as futures and options. If you are holding such positions you would either need to close them prior to the transfer taking place or request that they remain in your individual account.
 
2.       Prior to processing the transfer, you should make sure to close all open orders in the individual account to ensure that no executions take place following the transfer.
 
3.       The SMA (Special Memorandum Account) balance in your individual account will not transfer to the joint account. In certain cases this may impact your ability to open new positions in the joint account on the first day after the transfer is completed.
 
4.       Elective options such as market data subscriptions and participation in IB's Yield Enhancement Program will not be carried over to the joint account and must be re-initiated to continue.
 
5.       The cost basis of transferred positions as reported in the activity statements will remain unchanged for tax purposes.  The cost basis as reported in your trading platform (which is not used for tax reporting purposes) will not transfer over to the joint account but may be manually adjusted.
 
6.       Once the transfer has been completed and assuming all positions have been transferred your individual account will be designated for automatic closure. Note that certain balances such as dividend accruals can’t be transferred until paid, after which they will then be transferred and your individual account closed.
 
7.       You'll receive any applicable tax forms for the reportable activity transacted in each of your individual and joint accounts at year end. Access to Account Management for you individual account will remain after it has been closed for the purpose of reviewing and printing activity statements and tax forms.
 
8.       IBKR does not provide tax advice or investment guidance and recommends that account holder consult with qualified professionals to determine any legal, tax or estate planning consequences associated with single to joint transfer requests.

Designation of Eligible Contract Participant

Account holders may designate their status as an Eligible Contract Participant (ECP) by completing an online questionnaire provided via Client Portal/Account Management.  In the case where the account holder has provided information via the application process which suggests that they meet the ECP financial and/or organizational qualifications (see KB2731), the questionnaire is posted online in Account Management.  If the information submitted at the point of application does not support ECP qualification, the account holder may update their information online to obtain the questionnaire.  Outlined below are the steps necessary to access the questionnaire.

 

Step 1. Determine if the ECP questionnaire has been posted to your account:

For individual accounts, log into Client Portal/Account Management and select the Settings, Account Settings, and then Investor Category menu options. If you reported net worth in excess of the minimum qualifying threshold, you will be provided with the ECP questionnaire. Note that account holders reporting net worth below the ECP qualifying threshold may be provided with questionnaires for different investor categories (i.e., Accredited Investor).

For organization accounts, log into Client Portal/Account Management and select the Settings, Account Settings, and then Investor Category menu options. If your organization is of a specified category (e.g., registered broker dealer, FCM) or reported net worth in excess of the minimum qualifying threshold, you will be provided with the ECP questionnaire. Note that organizations reporting net worth below the ECP qualifying threshold may be provided with questionnaires for different investor categories (i.e., Qualified Purchaser).

If the ECP questionnaire has been posted to your account, complete and acknowledge the document via electronic signature. If the questionnaire has not been posted to your account, follow Step 2 below.

 

Step 2. Update your account information:

For individual and organization accounts, if your net worth exceeds the minimum qualifying threshold of $10 million, you may log into Client Portal/Account Management and select the Settings, Account Settings, and then Financial Information menu options. Included on that page will be a section where account holders can update and confirm their financial information. Note that updates to this information are subject to review by our Compliance Department prior to taking effect. Once changes have taken effect and, assuming those changes meet the qualifying threshold, the ECP questionnaire will be made available as noted in Step 1 above.

Eligible Contract Participant - Definition

IMPORTANT: Note that regulations are subject to change and clients are responsible for determining whether or not they qualify as an ECP. Please refer to "7 U.S. Code § 1a – Definitions" to ensure you are reviewing the most current definition of an ECP.

Account holders should take note of the below excerpt from the definition which is likely to be the most relevant.

  4. 在全球範圍進行交易
  5. 拓展您IB經驗的五個要點

 

1. 您的資金
存款&取款基本信息。所有轉賬都通過您的賬戶管理進行管理
存款
首先,通過您的賬戶管理 > 資金 > 資金轉賬 > 轉賬類型:“存款”創建一個存款通知(如何創建存款通知)。第二步,通知您的銀行進行電匯轉賬,在存款通知中提供詳細銀行信息。
取款
通過您的賬戶管理 > 資金 > 資金轉賬 > 轉賬類型:“取款”創建一個取款指令(如何創建取款指令
如果您通知要進行超出取款限額的取款,則會被視為異常取款,我們因此將需要匹配銀行賬戶持有人和IB賬戶。如果目的地銀行賬戶已被用作存款,那麼取款將會被處理;否則,您必須聯繫客戶服務并提供所需文件。
錯誤排查
存款:我的銀行發出了資金,但我沒有看到資金記入我的IB賬戶。可能的原因:
a) 資金轉賬需要1至4個工作日。
b) 存款通知缺失。您必須通過賬戶管理創建存款通知并向客戶服務發送一條咨詢單。
c) 修改詳情缺失。轉賬詳情中缺失您的姓名和IB賬戶號碼。您必須聯繫您的銀行索取完整的修改詳情。
d) IB發起的ACH存款7個工作日內限額為10萬美元。如果您開立的是初始要求為11萬美元的投資組合保證金賬戶,最好選擇電匯存款以減少您第一筆交易的等待時間。如果選擇ACH,會需要等待近2周時間,或者可以選擇臨時升級至RegT。
取款:我已經請求了取款,但我沒有看到資金記入我的銀行賬戶。可能的原因:
a) 資金轉賬需要1至4個工作日。
b) 被拒。超出最大取款限額。請檢查您賬戶的現金餘額。注意,出於監管要求,存入資金時會有三天置存期,之後才可以被取出。
c) 您的銀行退回了資金。可能是因為接收銀行賬戶與匯款銀行賬戶名稱不匹配。

 

2. 設置您的賬戶以進行交易

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.

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.

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.

Linking Accounts

Overview: 

Account linkage allows for individual account holders maintaining multiple existing accounts or seeking to open a new account the ability to group those accounts together.  In the case of a new account, linkage afffords the opportunity to open the account without having to complete a full application, with the account holder providing solely that additional information which is specific to the new account.  New account linkages are initiated either from the Account Management/Client Portal of the existing account (via the Settings > Account Settings > Create, Move, Link or Partition an Account menu options) or automatically when initiating a new application from the website. The following article outlines the steps for linking one or more existing accounts.

1) Login to Account Management/Client Portal and select the Settings and Account Settings menu options. 

 

2) On the Account Settings screen, you will see a section titled "Configuration". Click the Configure (gear) icon next to the words "Create, Move, Link or Partition an Account".

 

3) The Create, Move, Link or Partition an Account screen will list the various linkage options offered for your particular account. In order to link the account to one or more existing accounts, check the box to "Link All of My Existing Accounts Under a Single Username and Password" and click CONTINUE.

 

4) The Select Username screen will open and will list the accounts eligible for consolidation. Please note that there is no ability to consolidate a subset of the accounts. If a decision is made to consolidate, it must include all. In addition, while an account holder may place the consolidation request at any time, the actual consolidation takes place as of the close of business each Friday. 

5) Select which username you want to keep from the drop down menu. The screen will update to display the security device for the selected username. Once your accounts are linked, you will use the selected username and security device to login to any of the linked accounts. When finished, click CONTINUE.

6) You will be prompted to enter the username and password for each account to be linked, followed by additional authentication using your Secure Login device. Enter the username, password and authentication values for each account to be linked on the next screens, clicking CONTINUE to advance to the next screen.

7) We aggregate the financial information and trading experience information for all accounts to be linked. Verify your financial information and trading experience for the accounts to be linked, and then click CONTINUE.

8) Verify your account information and click CONTINUE. If you need to update your financial information, trading experience or account information, wait for those updates to be approved and then restart this linking procedure.

9) Verify any saved bank information you may have and click CONTINUE. Follow the remaining prompts on screen.

For information on how to cancel a linkage request, see Canceling a Pending Link Request.

IMPORTANT NOTES

* Once linked, account access to Account Management/Client Portal and the trading platform is accomplished using a single user name and password each of which will contain a drop-down window for selecting the account that the owner wishes to act upon.

* Linked accounts use the consolidated monthy commissions to calculate the Monthly Minimum Activity fee. Total commissions between the linked accounts must be at least (number of accounts) x USD 10 in order to avoid a fee. If the monthly consolidated commissions are less than this amount, an activity fee is charged on an account-by-account basis using the Standard Activity Fee calculcation. 

* As market data subscriptions are billed at a session level (i.e., user name) and only a single TWS session can be open for any one user at a given time, account holders previously maintaining subscriptions for multiple users have the opportunity to consolidate subscriptions to a single user.  Account holders wishing to view multiple TWS sessions simultaneously may add additional users (subject to separate market data subscribtions). In addition, only those market data subscriptions already associated with the surviving user name will remain in effect following consolidation.  Account holders maintaining different subscriptions across multiple users are advised to review those subscriptions subject to cancellation in order to determine which they wish to resubscribe to under the surviving user name.  Also note that the market data subscriptions either terminated or initiated mid-month are subject to billing as if they were provided for the entire month (i.e., fees are not prorated).
