    Did a wire transfer Friday at 8:40pm EST. It is in my NAB account this morning (Monday). I suspect it was received Saturday, but NAB probably held crediting the account until the next business day, which is today.

    Must be an ANZ thing then. Didn't seem to have problem with CBA.

    This bank is worrying me, called up to get a new password, didn't have telecode password. So to confirm identity, all the operator asked me was my full name. Then recited my address and email to me lol. Apparently all I need to access and reset someone's net banking password is to know their full name and logon id. Oh and a bonus for the hacker, they will throw in the owner's address and email too.

    I've been waiting over a week for an ACH transfer from a US bank account. It worked fine in a few days before they transferred the account to IB Aust but now it's been held up for some reason.

    Hi guys, got one of those daily alerts today in my email and says my Account XXXXX down more than $X. The value being my whole portfolio and funds. I logged into my ib account and everything was gone.

    Has anyone ever had this happen to them? Also a Sunday so cannot contact anyone about it, but it's making me a bit anxious.

    Which account though.

    Your new account number (to which your funds would have been transferred) would have a 7 after the U (mine did anyway), so it would be correct that your old account number would be showing a balance of zero.

    If you don’t see your new account number when you log into IB account management, it would be a systems issue that IB have overlooked and will quickly correct. Send them a ticket about it.

    Was thinking that must be it. Gotta be a systems error. I'm just on the mobile app and can't see any new account number or holdings.

    I was sent two emails with subject
    Margin cushion: 0% remaining (UXXXXXX)
    Account UXXXXXX down more than xxxxK

    We'll see

    Same here, receive messages nearly daily telling me my account is down by X amount (which equals the entire portfolio) but money is still there, phew. Gave me quite the shock!

    Has anyone successfully implemented a daily recurring email or FTP statement through PortfolioAnalyst or Flex Queries. I can only receive the Daily Activity Log on a daily basis.

    I've spoken with Help line, he suggested that a MTD PortfolioAnalyst statement would recur daily, surely a Flex Query statement can get send daily...?

    Could someone jig my memory... Was cfds allowed under the US entity before they transferred all accounts to the Aus entity?

    Also, would cfds potentially replace them not giving us margin lending? I'm contemplating opening an account using another country residence to get margin lending.

    CFD's were not allowed before with a cash account but are now. I don't know whether or not they plan to allow margin accounts at a later date or not.

    Hi All,

    Does anyone know why I cannot convert AUD cash to GBP cash? I have managed to do so for AUD to USD using the FXCONV option, although it isn't allowing me to do the same for GBP. I get an error message saying that I am not allowed, but I do not understand why

    Yes, you can only trade forex in currencies other than USD via CFD's at least this is my understanding. If you want to buy long foreign stocks just put the buy order in and IB will convert for you.

    I can't get it to work either so I'm assuming it isn't set up for IB Aust customers yet.

    If you have just signed up you might have missed the promo email sent last week, looks like IB are rolling out a few new web apps, one of which appears designed for buy and hold style portfolios
