Quote from DayTrader10:
I am considering a switch to interactive brokers for a swing trading account. The per share rates are much better than deep discount retailers like Zecco (which I am currently using). As a student under 26, it says I only need 3k to open an account. And that the inactivity fees are 3 dollars a month.
Anyways, let me get to the point. Is Interactive Brokers better than Zecco? Are there any other fees I need to worry about? And can I trade odd sized share lots?
Well it really does not matter, you will lose the 3K quickly in any brokerage firm. If you plan on daytrading/swingtrading 3K.
