Once your regular trading account has been approved and funded, you are eligible to open a Paper Trading Account. All paper trading accounts start with 1,000,000 USD of paper trading equity, which allows you experiment with the full range of IB trading facilities in a simulated environment which uses real market conditions.
Once you complete the application, the paper trading account is available within 24 hours under normal business circumstances. You will be notified by email when the account is ready for trading.
