Cash Report

This section shows how each period's cash balance changes from one statement period to the next. Cash balances are shown in your base currency in total, and for the securities and commodities segments of your account (in compliance with SEC and CFTC rules). For statements with multiple currencies, all amounts are totaled in the Base Currency Summary section, and then detailed for each additional currency.

Starting and Ending Cash represent trade date balances. We also show settlement date balances representing cash that has been received from a clearing organization (i.e. if you sell stock today you will not receive the proceeds for three days). Interest is calculated based on settlement balances (adjusted settled balances in the event an account holds short stock positions), accrued during the month and paid after the close of the month. For a complete explanation of how interest is calculated, see our IB Interest Calculation Method page.

Note that due to rounding differences, cash balances when summed may reflect a one-dollar difference when compared to the Trades section of your Activity Statement.

Note: This section appears in the Default Statement and Legacy Full Default Statement.
