Brexit Planning message from IB to EU customers

Hello, I got an email from Interactive Brokers regarding moving my account from IBUK to IBIE, IBLUX or IBCE. Not right now, but later this year. It was like a pre-announcement I guess. Anyway, anybody knows more about what will happen? Downsides? Features we'll lose? Taxation changes? How abot the s...

Obviously, whatever happened, it wasn't "Already priced in."

Seems like Warren Buffett also didn't think we hit some sort of bottom: https://www.fool.com/investing/2020/04/ ... risis.aspx

Re: [AT/Austria] clarification on ETF taxes

It sounds to me that if you are retiring in Austria and living off your investments, you only pay the 27.5% tax on the capital gains (when you sell) and that weird in-ETF dividend tax, also deferred when you sell. What other taxes you need to pay? Pension and unemployment are outside of this discuss...

Re: U.S. stocks in free fall

IMHO, the oil crash had such an impact because it is the first illustration of how low the demand & consumption actually fell. Thus it is a signal for the things to come in the following months: abysmal earning reports, layoffs and companies going out of business. People lived with the impressio...

Re: U.S. stocks continue to soar!

Oh my, noticed stocks soaring again, wondered what is happening?! Went to the news:

'World faces worst recession since Great Depression' https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-52273988

That's it then, makes total sense. Can relax now. Good day!

Re: U.S. stocks in free fall

Personally, I am happy every time I see a "bounce". I know many people investing for many years who waited too long to change their allocation as they aged. Longest bull in history... blah blah blah. They were greedy and now are terrified. Every extra percent helps convince them that it's ...

Re: Favorite country to live in after FIRE?

Thanks for all the great answers! I do believe there is an obvious separation between US and Non-US retirees (like on this whole forum after all) due to all the visa&tax implications. Home country will always be an option, but only if things do not derail too much. Travel will always be part of...

Specifically, how are you going to cash out and how much taxes are you going to pay in your country of retirement? US residents, we love you, but please ...

Favorite country to live in after FIRE?

With a rather international life-style and a current EU resident, I wonder where others plan to live while enjoying the fruits of their labor. Of course every one has his/her own criteria (mine include low capital gains taxes, good health care and lots of social freedoms) so let's hear them: what's ...

Re: How to buy a few thousand shares of VWCE?

Thanks a bunch! As I said, I have lots to learn. Some weird things about IB I just don't understand, maybe someone can enlighten me: 1) When previewing this BUY order a couple of days ago I got the estimated commission of 29.90 EUR but now for the exact same order I get the estimate of 56.50 EUR. (I...

How to buy a few thousand shares of VWCE?

Looking at IB's trading data I noticed that the daily trading volume for the Euro version (VWCE) is seldom over a thousand shares. Should I place multiple orders of a few hundred shares each? Or maybe I should exchange my Euros into USD and buy the USD version (VWRA)? Also, this is a historical mark...
