@MichaelGoode Hi Michael, I was wondering if you are able to trade OTC grey market stocks with IB? It's not letting me, saying "Trading in OTC grey market stocks is not supported". Really frustrating. Is there any solutions for this? Thanks!

There is no way around this -- if you have a position in a grey-market stock at IB they will let you call the trade desk to close it out. But they won't let you open new positions in grey market stocks. If for whatever reason you want to trade grey market stocks you will have to use another broker.

@Marioorazo Hello, how do you still manage to import verify trades with interactive brokers? i thought it is not supported anymore.

hello, I really don't know, I have two IB accounts, but just one of them works.

@MichaelGoode Hi Michael. You mention on your blog that you do not use TWS anymore, but you are still using Interactive Brokers. I was just wondering if you are using DAS connected with IB or a different broker for the charts and L2 but use IB to execute orders. Thank you.

I don't know where I would have said that -- I still use TWS. I do use DAS Pro with Centerpoint for level 2 and charts

Oh sorry, I didn't read that carefully. You replied to someone on your blog that you still use TWS but not time and sales and L2. Do you think DAS level 2 and time and sales is more accurate than IB's?

TWS L2 & time and sales is just as good but I have always considered TWS charts ugly. I have used them in the past but I just find it easier to use DAS Pro and I have to pay for those charts / L2 anyway whereas I don't have to pay for the IB L2 if I don't want it

@MichaelGoode Hey Michael, I'm trying to see which fee structure is better for pennies. Tiered or Fixed (interactive brokers) Have you used both fee structure? If yes which one is best to choose? Thank you in advance.

Either tier structure is expensive for cheap stocks (particularly under $1 per share). I recommend tiered if you buy on the bid and sell on the ask more often than not

Thanks Michael, I'm guessing tiered fee structure is best if you add liquidity to the market, and get rebates on that?

Yes, if you add liquidity then tiered is best and overall it will be cheaper

@ilikebbstock Hi! I have a question. On thinkorswim Level 2 do you see all the market makers ID with OTC stocks? ex: ARCA, MICA, CSTI, ASCM, ect.. because It only shows me OTC OTHER for otc stocks, but I can see all MMID for listed stocks. Thanks!
