F.A.S.T no longer requires the user to find, separate or enter the Branch Code, it's a thing of the past. U simply just key in the entire string of Acct Numbers will do.

Acct name: Interactive Brokers (or as much as u can enter)
Acct number: 11-digits
Remarks: your user id Uxxxxx

Well, you can't log in until your paper-trading account's approved, but once that's done you log in exactly the same way as you log in normally - just using your new paper-trading username and password.

Hi guys, another new sign up here.

Anyone knows why the currencies eg. EURUSD are always quoted in 0.5pips? Is there a setting to change it?

Quotes from their website shows anything from 0.1pips.

They display the quotes in 0.5-s but they'll fill you in 0.1-s if one of their liquidity providers is showing a better bid or offer.

If you want to toggle high-precision quotes on, here's the setting you want to change - but really, why bother? It won't change your fill levels.

Not sure - I'd guess it's one of the big global banks, though.

I've had IB fill a forex limit order a few hundred pips in my favor before...
Don't know what happened but seeing that I made a few hundred bucks off that, I'm not going to pry

A few hundred pips? That's pretty bloody generous - how'd you manage that? Or was it EURCHF on Jan 15th?

I honestly have no idea. It was USD/RUB a few weeks ago

Here's a screenshot I took at the time. My sell limit was 52.25, it filled at 53.15
The most mysterious part is that the actual price was not even anywhere near that level.
Please explain this magic to me

Managed to solve that.
Thanks for being helpful as always.
