Trade assets denominated in multiple currencies from a single account.
Convert currencies at market determined rates as low as 1/2 PIP wide, or create a position collateralized by a non-native currency.
Options, futures, stocks, forex, bonds, and funds around the world are held and reported in a single IB Universal AccountSM.

Best Trade Execution & Trade Cost
IB SmartRoutingSM is designed to search for the best price available at the time of your order, and unlike other routers, dynamically route and re-route all or parts of your order to achieve optimal execution.

According to The Transaction Auditing Group (TAG), a third-party independent provider of audit services, Interactive Brokers’ price execution for Stocks and Options is significantly better than the industry as a whole.
IB independently routes US stock, option and futures spread order legs to the best possible venue or natively routes your combination seeking price improvement, with IB undertaking the risk of partially executed orders.

IB SmartRouting AutorecoverySM re-routes your options orders in the case of an exchange malfunction, with IB undertaking the risk of double executions.
IB has automated every aspect of the trade process in-house, enabling us to offer ultra low commissions.
