    Hello ETers,

    I'm currently an IB user, very fond of the countless options provided by the broker.

    However, I was wondering if anyone knew of a direct access broker that also provided banking services.

    Typical things like CDs, savings account, checkings account.

    Your input is appreciated.
  2. The more shit you ask from a broker, the more it's gonna cost you. They'll need more layers of supervision/management and regulation and will pass that on to you in the form of higher overall fees.

    If that's what you want in a broker, then go to Schwab, Merrill or ETrade!
