Post Trade Allocations

Post-Trade Allocations


Quickly allocate US stock, option and US corporate bond orders post-trade using IB's intuitive Post-Trade Allocation tool.

The Post-Trade Allocation tool lists all the day's unallocated trades, and provides customizable template-based functionality to easily allocate all or some of your trades to multiple pre-approved clearing brokers.


Post-trade allocations offers the following benefits:

  • Allocate, re-allocate and unallocate trades any time of day:
    • Up until 6:00 PM E.T. for equities;
    • Up until 15 minutes after the allocation was made (or 5:15 PM, whichever comes first) for options.
  • Import allocations using Excel-compatible .csv formatted files.
  • View and select average price trades by order, and combine multiple orders into a custom average price.
  • Allocate by percentage or share size.
  • Allocate manually, or create allocation templates customized for daily use.
  • Configure allocation settings, display preferences and broker settings.
