    only direct acess here sorry
  3. They tried to tell em they were direct access. Thats why I was asking. :)

  4. I used to have an account with them for options trading. While I would not recommend them for direct access stock trading (they are web-based), I do think they are among the tops in customer service for options trading. They also allow you to enter sophisticated options strategies online, which is nice. I also like Mr. Stock for options trading.

    That's hard to believe. I used to trade with them: Great company if you trade options and/or very large positions, and if you like to have someone else work your orders. Otherwise, they're way behind the times for stock trading, even for web-based stock trading - and they've had nothing remotely deserving of the term "direct access" unless there's something new and big they're doing that hasn't gotten out yet. I doubt it, but stranger things have happened, I guess.
  6. They're not direct access but web based as has been mentioned. And I agree that they are primarily options oriented. You can trade equities there but their commissions are steep, around $25 round trip, I believe.
