Opening an IBKR Student Trading Lab account is easy.
Your instructor will trigger the account opening process by sending you an invitation to open a paper trading account. Simply follow the instructions in the invitation to open your account and be sure to record your username and password because you will need each to access your account. Your IBKR Student Trading Lab paper account is typically approved and activated within 1-3 business days after we receive your application.
You can check on your application status or review your account at any time by visiting our website and logging in to your account.
