Clarification on what is possible to live trade

Hi QuantConnect, I'd like to ask few questions regarding live trading:

- What stock exchanges are avaliable for trading Equities, Futures and Options?

- How happens Forex and CDFs are not tradable via Interactive Brokers?

Thanks!

Update Backtest








All backtesting assets are available for live trading (Equities, Futures, Options, Forex, CFD's). Whether the specific brokerage supports that asset type depends on the brokerage. 

Interactive Brokers only supports FX trading for US accounts of more than $10M USD.

Thanks for the quick reply Jared, but can I trade Equities/Futures on non-US market? for example on European stock exchanges?

Rregarding the FX, I believe I am using the wrong terminology. Is "un-leveraged currency trade" considered Forex? I have an european IB account and I can trade currencies and I was wondering if I can to the same on this platform.

Many thanks again.

Thanks Jared, please last clarification. Given that my IB account allows me to trade FX, can I trade FX via QuantConnect? That is, does QuantConnect prevent FX trading via IB even if the user account is allowed to do so?
