Hi Everyone, I saw some questions in the other thread and I will start a new one to answer many of your concerns. Please post questions here. We are a primarily a proprietary trading firm, however we also accept Retail Accounts. The rates are still the same, however there is a $1.00 / ticket minimum for retail accounts. Also, leverage is greater and min contribution is smaller for Prop accounts. Our retail accounts are fully sipc insured We offer leveraged retail LLC accounts The commission rates are correct. First month, regardless of your share volume, you will receive the best (level I) rate found on our website. We are currently clearing through Computer Clearing Services. We are approved by the NASD to be self-clearing and are waiting for the final approval from dtcc which we hope will happen soon. The rates are the same in any case. We have been around for quite some time. Currently we do 1 - 2% of NASDAQs total trading volume. At our peak we did over 6% of daily trading volume We offer API to automated traders (both prop and retail - we are very fast - our ping times attests to that). We have a dedicated staff to cater to the automated "black box" needs. Please post more questions and concerns and I would be glad to address them.
