美國微型市值股票限制

簡介
爲遵守非注册證券賣出相關法規、最小化非公開報價證券交易過程中的人工處理,IBKR對美國微型市值股票實施了一定限制。下方列出了該等限制以及與此話題相關的其它常見問題。 

微型市值股票限制

  • IBKR將接受來自符合條件之客戶的美國微型市值股票轉帳。符合條件的客戶包括:(1) 資産(轉帳前或轉帳後)不低于500萬美元的賬戶,或資産規模不低于2000萬美元的財務顧問的客戶;幷且(2) 美國微型市值股票投資占比不到其賬戶資産的一半。
  • IBKR將只接受符合條件的客戶能够確認股票系從公開市場買入或已在美國證監會(SEC)進行過注册的美國微型市值股票的大宗轉帳1
  • IBKR不接受客戶被OTC標記爲“買者自負”或“灰色市場”的美國微型市值股票轉帳1或開倉委托單。持有該等股票倉位的客戶可以進行平倉;
  • IBKR不接受爲了回補在IBKR的空頭倉位而進行的美國微型市值股票轉帳;
  • 僅執行客戶(即只通過IBKR執行交易,但在別處清算)不能在其IBKR賬戶中交易美國微型市值股票。(IBKR可對在美國注册的經紀商例外對待);


微型市值股票常見問題

什麽是美國微型市值股票?
“微型市值股票”是指市值介于5000萬美元到3億美元之間幷且價格低于5美元一股的(1) 場外交易股票或(2) Nasdaq和NYSE American挂牌股票。就該政策而言,微型市值股票包括市值等于或低于5000萬美元的美國上市公司股票,這種股票有時也被稱爲納級股或者是在與微型市值股票相關的市場上交易。

爲避免股價短期小幅波動導致股票被反復重新分類,所有被分類爲美國微型市值股的股票只有在其市值和股價連續30天均分別超過5億美元和5美元的情况下才會重新分類。

微型市值股票通常股價很低,常常被稱爲仙股。IBKR也可設置例外,包括對股價低但近期市值上漲的股票。此外,IBKR不會將非美國公司的ADR視作微型市值股票。

微型市值股票在哪裏交易?
微型市值股票通常在OTC市場而非全國性證券交易所交易。其通常由做市商在OTC系統(如OTCBB)和OTC Markets Group管理的市場(如OTCQX、OTCQB和Pink)以電子方式報價。該類別下還包含非公開報價的股票和被指定爲“買者自負”、其它OTC或“灰色市場”的股票。

此外,美國監管部門也將在Nasdaq和NYSE American挂牌、價格等于或低于5美元一股且市值等于或低于3億美元的股票視爲微型市值股票。


如果IBKR收到來自符合條件之客戶的轉倉,其中一個或多個倉位是微型市值股票,會怎麽樣?
如果IBKR收到包含微型市值股票的轉倉,IBKR有權限制其中任何微型市值股票倉位的賣出,除非符合條件的客戶能够提供適當的文件證明該等股票系在公開市場買入(即通過其它經紀商在交易所買入)或者該等股票已經根據S-1或類似股票注册聲明表在美國證監會進行過注册。

符合條件的客戶可以通過提供經紀商給出的能够反映股票買入交易的經紀報表或交易確認來證明股票確實是在公開市場上買入。符合條件的客戶也可以通過提供其股票在美國證監會(Edgar系統)進行注册的備案號(以及任何可證明股票就是注册聲明上所列股票的文件)來證明股票已經過注册。

注意:所有客戶隨時都可轉出我們對其實施了限制的股票。

IBKR對主經紀賬戶有什麽限制?
活動包含主經紀服務的客戶在IBKR同意接受的來自其執行經紀商的交易方面被視爲符合條件的客戶。然而,儘管主經紀賬戶可以在IBKR清算美國微型市值股票,但在IBKR確認股票根據上述程序可以賣出之前,相關股票將受到限制。要爲在公開市場上買入的股票移除限制,請提供執行經紀商出具的正式賬戶報表或交易確認,或者讓執行經紀商提供有公司抬頭的顯示IBKR賬戶名稱和賬戶號碼的簽字函件,函件應說明股票系從公開市場買入幷應提供交易執行的詳細信息(日期、時間、數量、代碼、價格和交易所)。如果股票是通過發行取得,則函件必須提供相關注册聲明文件或鏈接幷說明該等股票是發行股票的一部分。

總結:如果多頭倉位不再受到限制則可以接受賣出多頭交易。賣出空頭交易可以接受。買入多頭交易可以接受,但倉位將被限制,直到向合規部門提供足够資料將限制移除。不接受買入補倉交易和日內軋平交易。


如果您買入的股票被重新分類爲“灰色市場”或“買者自負”股票怎麽辦?

如果您在IBKR賬戶中買入的股票之後被分類爲“買者自負”或“灰色市場”股票,您將可以繼續持有倉位、平倉或轉倉,但無法增加持倉。


我賬戶中微型市值股票交易受到限制的原因是什麽?
您被限制交易微型市值股票的主要原因有兩個:

  • 與發行方存在潜在關聯:美國證監會規則144對發行人的關聯方交易股票(包括微型市值股票)有一定限制。如果IBKR發現微型市值股票交易活動或持倉接近規則144規定的交易量閾值(“規則144閾值”),則IBKR會限制客戶交易該微型市值股票,直到完成合規審查。
  • 微型市值股票轉倉:如果客戶近期將微型市值股票轉入其IBKR賬戶,IBKR會限制客戶交易該證券,直到完成合規審查。

如果符合其中一種情况,相關證券交易會受到限制,客戶會在賬戶管理的消息中心下收到相應通知。該通知將說明限制的原因以及客戶爲了解除限制必須采取的措施。


爲什麽IBKR將我視爲微型市值股票發行方的潜在關聯方?
“關聯方”是與發行方存在控制關係的人士,如執行官、董事或大股東。

規則144適用于包括微型市值股票在內的所有證券。但是,鑒于交易微型市值股票涉及高風險,如果客戶的微型市值股交易和/或持倉接近規則144閾值,IBKR將限制客戶交易該微型市值股票。該等限制在合規對客戶的潜在關聯方身份進行審核幷作出决定之前將保持生效。

對于潜在關聯方審核,爲什麽我需要要求每兩周進行一次新的審核?
客戶的關聯方身份可能會在IBKR完成上述潜在關聯方審核後很快發生變化。因此,IBKR認爲如果客戶的的微型市值股交易和/或持倉仍然接近規則144閾值,每兩周刷新一下潜在關聯方審核較爲合適。

資金轉賬限制

簡介

作為反洗錢工作的一部分,IBKR會對某些客戶存款和取款實施限制。該等限制針對的是具有較高反洗錢風險之國家相關的轉帳,同時會考慮客戶的居住地、取款目的地和轉帳資金的計價幣種等因素。1下方對該等限制進行了簡要介紹。

 

限制概述

  • 在被認定為具有較高反洗錢風險之國家居住或擁有聯繫地址的客戶不得將資金取到位於另一具有較高反洗錢風險之國家的賬戶,除非其在該國也有聯繫地址。
  • 在被認定為具有較高反洗錢風險之國家居住或擁有聯繫地址的客戶不得從位於另一具有較高反洗錢風險之國家的賬戶發起存款,除非其在該國也有聯繫地址。
  • 在被認定為具有較高反洗錢風險之國家居住或擁有聯繫地址的客戶只能將資金取到其曾從中收到過存款的賬戶。
  • 客戶只能以其基礎貨幣、其本國貨幣或通用貨幣(如USD、EUR、HKD、AUD、GBP、CHF、CAD、JPY和SGD)取款。
  • IBKR會對客戶取款的目標銀行數目進行限制,不論客戶或銀行的所在國家或地區。

請注意,客戶如果要創建被限制的網上銀行指令或發起被限制的存款或取款,系統會阻止其操作並報錯。

 

1在確定一個國家是否具有較高反洗錢風險時,參考的是金融行動特別工作組(FATF)提供的信息。金融行動特別工作組是一個政府間國際組織,致力於打擊洗錢、恐怖主義融資和其它對國際金融體系完整與公開反洗錢指數構成威脅的行為。

Funds Transfer Restrictions

INTRODUCTION

As part of its anti-money laundering efforts, IBKR implements restrictions on certain client deposits and withdrawals. These restrictions apply to transfers associated with countries considered to have elevated AML risk and consider factors such as the client’s residency, the withdrawal destination and the denomination of the currency being transferred.1 An outline of these restrictions is provided below.

 

OVERVIEW OF RESTRICTIONS

  • Clients residing or maintaining an address in a country designated as having elevated AML risk may not withdraw funds to an account located in another country that has elevated AML risk unless they also maintain an address in that country.
  • Clients residing or maintaining an address in a country designated as having elevated AML risk may not deposit funds from an account located in another country having elevated AML risk unless they also maintain an address in that country.
  • Clients residing or maintaining an address in a country designated as having elevated AML risk may only withdraw funds to an account from which that client received a first-party deposit.
  • Clients may only withdraw funds in their base currency, their home country’s currency or common currencies (e.g. USD, EUR, HKD, AUD, GBP, CHF, CAD, JPY and SGD).
  • IBKR may restrict the number of banks that a client may send money to, regardless of the domicile of the client or the bank.

Note that clients who attempt to create an online banking instruction or initiate a deposit or withdrawal which is restricted will be blocked from creating that instruction or initiating that transaction and will be presented with an online error message.

 

1In determining whether a country is associated with elevated AML risk, consideration is given to information provided by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), an intergovernmental organization which promotes measures for combating money laundering, terrorist financing and other related threats to the integrity of the international financial system and other public AML indices.

U.S. Microcap Stock Restrictions

Introduction
To comply with regulations regarding the sale of unregistered securities and to minimize the manual processing associated with trading shares that are not publicly quoted, IBKR imposes certain restrictions on U.S. Microcap Stocks. A list of those restrictions, along with other FAQs relating to this topic are provided below. 

Microcap Restrictions

  • IBKR will only accept transfers of blocks of U.S. Microcap stocks from Eligible Clients. Eligible Clients include accounts that: (1) maintain equity (pre or post-transfer) of at least $5 million or, clients of financial advisors with aggregate assets under management of at least $20 million; and (2) have less than half of their equity in U.S. Microcap Stocks.
  • IBKR will only accept transfers1 of blocks of U.S. Microcap Stocks where the Eligible Client can confirm the shares were purchased on the open market or registered with the SEC;
  • IBKR will not accept transfers1 of or opening orders for U.S. Microcap Stocks designated by OTC as Caveat Emptor or Grey Market from any client. Clients with existing positions in these stocks may close the positions;
  • IBKR will not accept transfers of U.S. Microcap Stocks to cover a short position established at IBKR;
  • Execution-only clients (i.e., execute trades through IBKR, but clear those trades elsewhere) may not trade U.S. Microcap Stocks within their IBKR account. (IBKR may make exceptions for U.S.-registered brokers);


Microcap FAQs

What is a U.S. Microcap Stock?
The term “Microcap Stock” refers to shares (1) traded over the counter or (2) that are listed on Nasdaq and NYSE American that have a market capitalization of between $50 million to $300 million and are trading at or below $5. For purposes of this policy, the term Microcap Stock will include the shares of U.S. public companies which have a market capitalization at or below $50 million, which are sometimes referred to as nanocap stocks or trade on a market generally associated with Microcap Stocks.

To avoid situations where minor, short-term fluctuations in a stock price cause repeated reclassification, any stock classified as U.S. Microcap will remain in that classification until both its market capitalization and share price exceed $300 million and $5, respectively, for a 30 consecutive calendar day period.

As Microcap Stocks are often low-priced, they are commonly referred to as penny stocks. IBKR may make exceptions, including for stocks traded at low prices that recently had a greater market cap. In addition, IBKR will not consider ADRs on non-US companies to be Micro-Cap stocks.

Where do Microcap Stocks trade?
Microcap Stocks typically trade in the OTC market, rather than on a national securities exchange. They are often electronically quoted by market makers on OTC systems such as the OTC Bulletin Board (OTCBB) and the markets administered by the OTC Markets Group (e.g., OTCQX, OTCQB & Pink). Also included in this category are stocks which may not be publicly quoted and which are designated as Caveat Emptor, Other OTC or Grey Market.
In addition, U.S. regulators also consider stocks listed on Nasdaq or NYSE American trading at or below $5 with a market capitalization at or less than $300 million to be Microcap Stocks.

What happens if IBKR receives a transfer from an Eligible Client where one or more of the positions transferred is a Microcap Stock?
If IBKR receives a transfer containing a block of a Microcap stock, IBKR reserves the right to restrict the sale of any Microcap position(s) included in the transfer unless the Eligible Client provides appropriate documentation establishing that the shares were either purchased on the open market (i.e., on a public exchange through another broker) or were registered with the SEC pursuant to an S-1 or similar registration statement.

Eligible Clients can prove that shares were purchased on the open market by providing a brokerage statement or trade confirm from a reputable broker reflecting the purchase of the shares on a public exchange. Eligible Clients can establish that the shares are registered by providing the SEC (Edgar system) File number under which their shares were registered by the company (and any documents necessary to confirm the shares are the ones listed in the registration statement).

NOTE: All customers are free to transfer out any shares we have restricted at any time.

What restrictions will IBKR apply to Prime accounts?
Clients whose activities include Prime services are considered Eligible Clients solely for the purposes of those trades which IBKR has agreed to accept from its executing brokers. However, while Prime accounts may clear U.S. Microcap Stocks at IBKR, those shares will be restricted until such time IBKR confirms that the shares are eligible for re-sale under the procedures discussed above.  To remove the restriction for shares purchased on the open market, please provide an official Account Statement or Trade Confirmation from the executing broker or have the executing broker provide a signed letter, on company letterhead, showing the IBKR account name and number, stating that the shares were purchased in the open market, along with the details of the executions (date, time, quantity, symbol, price, and exchange).  Or if the shares were acquired through an offering the letter must provide documents or links to the relevant registration statement and state that the shares were part of it.

To summarize: Sell Long trades will be accepted if the long position is no longer restricted.  Sell Short trades will be accepted.  Buy Long trades will be accepted and the position will be restricted until Compliance is provided with sufficient information to remove the restriction.  Buy Cover trades and intraday round trip trades will not be accepted.


What happens if a stock you purchase gets reclassified as Grey Market or Caveat Emptor?

If you purchase a stock in your IBKR account that at a later date becomes classified as a Caveat Emptor or Grey Market stock, you will be allowed to maintain, close or transfer the position but will not be able to increase your position.


What are some of the reasons why Microcap Stock trading may be restricted in my account?
There are two primary reasons why you might be restricted from trading in a Microcap Stock:

  • Potential Affiliation to Issuer: U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Rule 144 places certain limitations on trading of stocks (including Microcap Stocks) by an “affiliate” of the issuer. If IBKR observes trading activity or holdings in a Microcap Stock that are close to the trading volume thresholds under Rule 144 (“Rule 144 Thresholds”), IBKR may restrict the customer from trading the Microcap Stock until a compliance review is completed.
  • Transfer of Microcap Stock: If the customer has recently transferred a Microcap Stock into their IBKR account, IBKR may restrict the customer from trading in that security until a compliance review is completed.

If one of the above reasons apply, trading will be restricted in the security and a notification will be sent to the customer’s message center in Account Management. This notification will describe the reason for the restriction and the steps the customer must take before IBKR will consider lifting the restriction.


Why does IBKR consider me to be a potential affiliate of a Microcap Stock issuer?
An “affiliate” is a person, such as an executive officer, a director or large shareholder, in a relationship of control with the issuer.

Rule 144 applies to all securities, including Microcap Stocks. However, given the heightened risks associated with trading Microcap Stocks, if a customer’s trading and/or holdings in a Microcap Stock are close to the Rule 144 Thresholds, IBKR will restrict the customer’s trading in the Microcap Stock.  This restriction will remain in effect pending a compliance review into the customer’s potential affiliate status.

For the Potential Affiliate review, why do I need to ask for a new review every two weeks?
A customer’s affiliate status may change soon after IBKR completes the above-referenced Potential Affiliate review. As such, IBKR believes it is appropriate to refresh a Potential Affiliate review every two weeks if a customer’s trading activity and/or holdings in the Microcap Stock remain close to the Rule 144 Thresholds.

Where can I find a list of stocks that IBKR has designated as U.S. Microcaps?
A list of stocks designated as U.S. Microcaps by IBKR is available via the following link: www.ibkr.com/download/us_microcaps.csv

Note that this list is updated daily.

Where can I find additional information on Microcap Stocks?
Additional information on Microcap Stocks, including risks associated with such stocks may be found on the SEC website: https://www.sec.gov/reportspubs/investor-publications/investorpubsmicrocapstockhtm.html
-----------------------------------------------------------
1This includes transfers by any method (e.g., ACATS, DWAC, FOP), conversion of Canadian listings to their U.S. equivalent via “Southbound” transfer, transfers to cover existing short positions, IB Prime customers executing with other brokers and clearing to IBKR, etc.

 

South African Rand (ZAR) - Onshore/Offshore

Overview: 

Explanation of Onshore/Offshore South African Rand (ZAR)

Background

The South African Reserve Bank (SARB) has currency exchange control rules in place for South African residents. A South African resident is a person (i.e. a natural person, body corporate, foundation, trust or partnership) whether of South African or any other nationality who has taken up residence, is domiciled or registered in the Republic of South Africa (RSA). A resident account is also the account of persons resident, domiciled or registered in the Common Monetary Area (CMA). The CMA comprises of the Republic of South Africa, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland. There are no exchange control restrictions between the members of the CMA and they form a single exchange control territory.

The rules stipulate that there is a yearly limit placed on the amount of ZAR that can be taken out of the country by South African residents – i.e. taken "Offshore". ZAR that remain in South Africa are deemed “Onshore”.

Each resident can take the following amounts offshore per calendar year:

  • ZAR 1 million can be taken offshore as a “Single Discretionary Allowance”
  • ZAR 10 million can be taken offshore as an “Foreign Capital Allowance”

Only institutions licensed as “Authorised Dealers” (AD) are able to send ZAR outside of South Africa and so offshore. An AD is responsible for reporting the offshoring of any ZAR to the SARB. As a result, residents sending ZAR offshore must accurately state the purpose for which the ZAR is being sent. Residents must receive approval from an AD before they are able to send any ZAR offshore. Prior to taking ZAR offshore as part of the Foreign Capital Allowance, residents must also have additional clearance from the SA tax authorities.

The full exchange control rulebook from the SARB can be found here: https://www.resbank.co.za/RegulationAndSupervision/FinancialSurveillanceAndExchangeControl/EXCMan/Pages/default.aspx

Current Situation

Our cashiering account is a non-resident account. Therefore, we are permitted to:

  • Receive deposits in ZAR from other non-resident accounts.
  • Disburse ZAR from our cashiering account to non-resident accounts.
  • Receive deposits from accounts of South African residents.
  • Disburse ZAR to accounts of South African residents.

如何通過銀行電匯轉帳存入資金?

要向賬戶進行電匯存款,您首先需要通過客戶端提供存款通知。登錄客戶端後依次選擇轉帳與支付>轉帳資金菜單選項。在這裡,轉帳類型選擇“存入資金”,存款方式選擇“銀行電匯”。

系統會提示您輸入發款銀行詳細信息,包括存款金額、幣種和匯款機構。您完成信息填寫後,系統會以可打印的形式顯示所有詳細信息(如,ABA號碼、Swift BIC代碼以及銀行賬戶號碼),您可將這些信息提供給銀行以發起電匯轉帳。

請注意,創建存款通知至關重要,因為您的銀行在電匯資金時所需要的信息會因電匯幣種的不同而不同。此外,存款通知還可幫助確保資金到達後立即匹配到您的賬戶。

如還有其它疑問,請聯繫我們的客戶服務中心。您可從以下網站鏈接查看我們的聯繫方式和工作時間:https://individuals.interactivebrokers.com/cn/index.php?f=2440

Depositing Shares Held in the Direct Registration System (DRS)

Overview
The Direct Registration System (DRS) allows shareholders to register their U.S. share holdings on the books and records of the issuer in an electronic rather than paper certificate form through the issuer’s designated transfer agent. Once held in a DRS account, the shares may then be transferred electronically via the Depository Trust Company (DTC) to your IB account where transactions may take place or where the shares may be afforded margin loan value.

It should be noted that not all shares are DRS eligible. In general, most U.S. exchange traded securities are, but many OTC shares, as well as shares subject to a restriction and therefore held in certificate form, are not.

Transfer Process
To deposit shares held in your DRS account to your IB account you will need to log into Account Management and create transfer instructions. These instructions require that you provide IB with certain information regarding your DRS account (e.g., account number and taxpayer ID) which you will need to obtain from and/or confirm with your transfer agent. It’s important that you provide IB with information which matches that of your DRS account, otherwise your transfer agent will reject the request and you will be charged a rejection fee. Information regarding fees for rejected as well as settled transactions are posted on the website.

Once the DRS account information has been confirmed, log into Account Management and proceed as follows:

1. Select the Funding and then Position Transfers menu options;

2. From the Position Transfer screen, select a transfer method of DRS-Direct Registration System and transfer type of Deposit via the drop-down menus;

3. You’ll be directed to the DRS Transfer screen where the taxpayer ID you’ve provided to IB is displayed. If this does not match that which you maintain for your DRS account, you will first need to reconcile and correct the information so it matches prior to proceeding with the transfer request. Requests submitted with a mismatched taxpayer ID will result in the transfer being rejected by your transfer agent and your account being subject to a rejection processing fee;

4. Enter your DRS account number and click the Continue button. Note that requests submitted with an account number that doesn't match that of your DRS account will result in the transfer being rejected by your transfer agent and your account being subject to a rejection processing fee;

5. Enter the symbol of the security you intend to transfer as well as the share quantity. Note that requests submitted with a symbol not held within or a share quantity which exceeds that held in your DRS account will result in the transfer being rejected by your transfer agent and your account being subject to a rejection processing fee;

6. Enter your electronic signature and click the “Continue” button to confirm your transfer request.

IB will then notify DTC who will match the security to its associated transfer agent and send them notification of your request. Assuming the DRS account and share information you’ve provided is correct, the transfer agent will post the shares for delivery to IB.  Note that while transfer requests typically settle within 2 -5 business days, the transfer agent may take longer to respond to the notification and, if no response is received within 30 days, the request will be canceled.


IMPORTANT NOTE
If you are transferring shares from a joint account or are a non-US person, special consideration needs to be provided to the taxpayer ID you provide to IB for matching to your DRS account. In the case of a joint account, the ID will generally be one of the SSNs of the joint account holders or a default value of 999999999. In the case of a non-US person, where no US taxpayer ID exists, a default value of 111111111 is often used. In either case, you will need to verify with the transfer agent the identifier they will recognize for matching purposes. If the transfer agent requests an identifier which doesn’t match one of the elections provided within Account Management, please contact Customer Service for transfer assistance.
