Updated: June 27, 2019
In order to complete the migration of your Global TradeStation (GTS) brokerage account to Euro Pacific Trader (EPT), your new Interactive Brokers-powered platform1, you must “activate” your EPT account as soon as possible. Please follow the instructions below and refer to the Migration Timeline for future milestones.
1. Login to your eBanking
Read our recent secure message with the subject line IMPORTANT: Activate your new Euro Pacific Trader account now.
2. Log into your EPT Client Portal
After logging into your EPT Client Portal for the first time, you will be asked to complete a short, electronic compliance form. This information will be used to process US Source Income every year, a mandatory regulatory requirement.
Note: Some clients may be required to fulfill outstanding document such as a W8 or CRS Form or may be requested additional documentation like a new, scanned proof of address, in order to keep our records up to date.
3. Check your account activation status
If you have logged into your Client Portal successfully and submitted your compliance form, your EPT account will be activated shortly, unless more information or documentation is required. To check your Account Activation Status, simply log into your Client Portal again.
If your account is activated, you will arrive at your Client Portal home page successfully.
If you have any questions about where you are in the activation process after you have submitted the compliance form, please send us an eBanking secure message or email [email protected] and we will reply confirming the status of your Euro Pacific Trader account.
4. Trading enabled
As noted in the Migration Timeline, starting July 1st, all activated Euro Pacific Trader accounts will be:
- Enabled for live trading and enabled for funding.
Your new EPT account will be added to your eBanking “Transfer Between Own Accounts” function, so that you can fund it. Please note your brokerage account will be a new 10-digit account number.
- Credited with your GTS open equity positions completely or partially.
This will occur gradually over the period of July 1-19th.
5. Happy trading
Initially, we will offer two platforms—the entry-level Client Portal and the flagship TraderPro. Click below to learn which is the most suitable for you.
Please note that the first time you log into your EPT account, you will be required to enable Two-Factor Authentication (2FA), per our security policies. You will be asked to go to a website and download the iOS and Android-based 2FA application.

6. View your account
To view your EPT cash balance and positions, please login directly to your Client Portal or TraderPro platforms. Due to the migration, your eBanking dashboard’s External Products section will not reflect an accurate balance at this time, but we do intend to re-launch this feature in the near future.
7. Re-enter any open orders
Unfortunately, open orders such as Stop Losses and Take-Profit (Limit) currently in your Global TradeStation (GTS) platform are tied to Saxo Bank and therefore cannot be migrated. If you have any open orders you’d like to maintain, please re-enter them in Euro Pacific Trader after your positions have been migrated there.
Concerned about your open equity positions?
Rest assured—all qualified migration clients’ open equity positions will be held by Euro Pacific Securities until the corresponding client has completed the instructions below and your open equity positions will not be forced liquidated. If you have received an eBanking secure message with your new Euro Pacific Trader login details, you qualify for the brokerage migration.
Note: Not all open equity positions can be migrated. There is a shortlist of equities that are not supported by our new custodian. Affected clients will be notified accordingly when this list is finalized.
