IBKR - Activate paper trading account

By xngo on August 10, 2020

Having a paper trading account with Interactive Brokers is practical. I use it mainly to get familiar with their software, especially with features that I have never used. To enable it, follow the following steps.

  1. Login to your Interactive Brokers web portal.
  2. Navigate to Settings > Account Settings
  3. Under Configuration section, click on the Configure gear icon at the right side of Paper Trading Account line.
  4. From there activate you paper trading account.
