  1. Hey i am about to start a new stock trading account and i would love the help of all the fellow ETers. I am planning on starting an account with 50k-100k to day-trade stocks and options. Potentially I would like to trade 5k-20k shares daily and maybe 1k-5k options daily. I hear a lot of people on this forum recommending Interactive-brokers for thier rates and accessability so im thinking of starting there. I looked at charles schwab and others but i dont want to get raped on commision. I want an easy operating platform with the ability to trade a real-time bid and offer. I wanted to know what you guys think would be the best route to go.
