Stock Exchanges for Penny Stocks

Depending on the stock exchange, penny stocks are differently difficult to trade. In general:

Exchange PURE: Only a few (large) pennystocks tradable, rest: close-only*

Exchange VENTURE: Regular trading

Exchange PINK: Regular trading, occasionally close-only*

Exchange ARCAEDGE: Regular trading

*Close-only = Already purchased positions can be closed, but no new positions can be opened.

Notes on stock trading:

  • Commissions apply to all order types.
  • All exchange and regulatory fees are included.
  • VAT, also referred to as consumption tax, goods and services tax, where applicable, will be separately applied for eligible services.
  • Modified orders will be treated as the cancellation and replacement of an existing order with a new order. On certain exchanges, this may have the  effect of subjecting modified orders to commission minimums as if they were new orders. For example, if an order for 200 shares is submitted and 100 shares execute, then you modify the order and another 100 shares execute, a minimum commission would be applied to both 100 share orders. Orders that persist overnight will be considered a new order forthe purposes of determining order minimums.
  • Stamp duty: The stamp duty will be directly passed through to the client (UK = 0.5 %, Ireland = 1.0 %).

Interest rates are daily calculated and credited to your account at the beginning of each calendar month. Effective interest rates are available at the end of each month in the “monthly report”.

Interest rates serve for information purposes, relevant interest rates are those shown in your account after having logged in.

Interest Paid on Idle Cash Balances
Client accounts are eligible to receive credit interest on long settled cash balances and short stock collateral values in their securities accounts. Interest accrues and is payable on a daily basis. IBKR posts the interest payments on a monthly basis on the third business day of the following month.

IBKR uses a blended rate based on the tiers outlined in the table below. The tiers on which interest rates are based are subject to change without prior notification.
For balances held in CHF, CZK, DKK, EUR, JPY or SEK, IBKR currently applies an effective negative rate to long balances held. For other currencies in which the benchmark rate plus the interest rate paid is less than zero, the interest paid is 0%.
