Hello, I've been a long-time user of Folio Investing and decided to have my accounts automatically transferred to Interactive Brokers -- two IRA's and a taxable account.

With Folio, it was always so easy and seamless to buy and sell stocks simultaneously in the trading windows.

With IB so far, it seems as if it's requiring that funds from sales be fully settled before buys can be made with those funds. I sold some stocks today, and the proceeds are showing in "Settled Cash" but not in "Available Funds." It seems I'm not allowed to use the $ from the sales to buy anything.

Any info or guidance from someone familiar with IB surely appreciated!
