Re: Moving from DeGiro to Interactive Brokers

Hi,

I am also considering to change from DEGIRO to IB. I am interested in knowing what's your opinion of IB vs DEGIRO now that you already have some months of experience with IB.

In terms of availability of stocks does IB has the same broad offer as DEGIRO? I opened an eToro account and I am very disappointed with them. Many stocks that I own in Degiro are not available, the platform feels like a game instead of a proper stock trading platform and I am running in circles trying to find the best (cheapest) way of transferring fund to and from eToro. The issue is that they accept transfers to eToro in other currencies than USD, but they charge 0,5% fee and for the transfers from eToro they only do in USD, which means that my bank will charge quite high fee for converting the USD in CHF (or Eur if I send to my Portuguese account) at a very bad conversion rate.

Thanks in advance,
Joaquim
