Depending on applicable regulations or business limitations, specific API requests may not be available for your use.

Remove a Restriction

This request removes an account restriction from a brokerage account.

Note that new accounts are automatically restricted upon creation, pending the user signing the brokerage customer agreement. Accounts so restricted cannot take certain actions, such as placing a market order for a security.

In the API test environment this restriction may be lifted with this API call. In the API production environment, only selected firms, generally broker dealers, may lift this restriction by API call, once they have captured the customer’s electronic signature of the brokerage customer agreement.
