Post Trade Allocations
The Post Trade Allocations page lets you allocate some
or all of your US stock, options and US corporate bond trades to defined clearing brokers.
Make allocations any time during the trading day, from seconds after execution
up until 6:00 PM ET. Note that you must first define settlement instructions (located
on the Funding > Instructions page) before you can allocate
any trades post-trade.
To activate the Post Trade Allocation feature, you must first have IB Execution
services enabled. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
