a trivial question. i have an account with Firstrade, in which I hold a long position in GDXJ and short position in GDX, with margin. I have recently opened an account with IB and am looking to transfer my entire portfolio there. Is it easier to 1. close my Firstrade account, wire all funds into my bank, wire to IB, re-establish my portfolio, or 2. transfer all my asset to IB? Considering that I use an offshore bank, the $50 for asset transfer is cheaper than the multiple international wire fees. Are there any other consideration in terms of fees ?
