I think I am going to open an account with ECHO. I would like to ask some questions here before I do. Thanks in advance. 1. Can you make a deposit and "hold" an account with them while you are getting the series 7 out of the way? 2. How do they handle "your" account(s)? Do they send statements via-email? Mail? etc. How often do they send statements? I like that IB sends me my previous days. Is the information downloadable? 3. How is the process in getting funds from your account on a regular basis? Which bank do they do business with? 4. If the system goes down how is their call "center," I assume they have one (answer time, execution speed). [I had to call in a trade at IB, I wanted to melt the guy on the other end.] 5. Do they offer "electronic" bullets to remote customers? 6. Please feel free to add additional info.
