They won't let me open an account since Im not 21 but 18. I have a many times their minimum deposit to put in and would be a great customer. I am sure I know more about trading products than a large percentage of their older customers. Just because I'm 18 its age prejudice. Anybody know of a good IB alternative. My current broker is TOS and they are good for options but their commissions are high. They charge 1.50 per contract, 3.50 per side futures, 5-7.50 for stocks but really expensive per share commission for penny stocks, and ultra expensive margin interest. I am thinking about going Etrade maybe. Maybe I should try and convince them to let me open an account worth a try?
