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%.
