    I joined a few weeks ago and really like the DAS platform. stocks options and futures on one trading platform. It’s difficult to find that in Australia. The customer service is great. The account reporting isn’t the best i’ve seen and doesn’t have any trading analytics. You can find that free elsewhere though, just have to export the trades and import them

          I noticed you gave a very low rating (+1), but supplied no reason for such a score.

          Can you please provide me with your reason(s)?

    This was the best online trading broker choice for me since i am located in Hong Kong and I didn’t want to be restricted by US PDT margin rules.

    Opening account process is quick (all online), funds were sent to Harris Bank in the states (this was a big plus), I was able to trade the very next day.

    So far i am extremely happy with this online broker. Customer Support is absolutely superb BTW and questions are answered quickly via online chat room.

    I highly recommend !!

    I heard stories about IBWordwide holding up client’s account for a long time without legid reasons, and some kind of investigation against IBW was undergoing. Do you guys encounter any ‘rule’s set by IBW to restrict you from getting you money out of IBW?

    It seems that IBW is not going to get its license back, and is suspending all its operations for now. Are you going to get your money back?

    As many customers know, as of 17May2013 IBWW has suspended operations and are only permitting customers to liquidate positions. The DAS front end and back end still appear to be producing accurate positions, reports and calculations regarding margin interest. Calls to my back office contact respond by saying this is a temporary situation.

    Like many, I have many questions with little official public information and I am concerned for our positions and capital at the firm.

    Hopefully, we do not have another MF Global situation and that IBWW management is reputable to handle the situation. Unfortunately, there is no regulatory body in my mind to aid the IBWW customers.

    Having said that and for all readers and customers of IBWW, I have established a mailbox at:

    [email protected]

    to gather data and information regarding customer anonymous statistics, suggestions and actions that might be taken in on a class action basis and acting as a central information exchange.

    On an anonymous basis, if you are interested email me your email address and I shall volunteer to the best of my ability on this important matter.

    Best regards,

    [email protected]

    ps. If there are any regulatory or legal entities that can help the customers of IBWW, we would appreciate your contacting this website.

    pps. Assuming IBWW owners and management are reading this blog, I would strongly encourage you to publish on your website the situation and what actions you are taking. Just be honest. If you reputable tell us the truth with no sugar-coating.

      This is the email I have received from them:

      Dear Sahur ,

      It’s with sadness we have to inform you of the following

      Please be advised that International Brokers, Inc. has suspended operations until further notice. The company is in discussions with its regulatory authority on matters pertaining to its current business and future opportunities. During this time all accounts will only be able to close positions, not open new ones. We thank you for your patience and consideration.

      This means that as if tomorrow, you can only close positions in your account and not put on new ones. We expect to have further information from regulatory authorities within a week, and can only apologize for the inconvenience this creates.

      If you have any thoughts, questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Hi everybody,

    I sent several emails to IBW staff and have not gotten any response yet. Does anyone know what is going on? Has anyone been able to get their money back and out of their account?

    Any comment would be helpful.
