Is there (still?) a minimum age of 21 if you want to open an individual account?
Just did some checks and it seems you still need to be 21 to open an account with IB.
I'd hate to have to choose a different (& less interesting) broker because of this nuisance..
Is there no way around this? (i'm 20)
And waiting till i'm 21 isn't really an option.
Get your dad/mom/sister or brother to open an account for you. When I have kids I'll be opening an account for them when they're 10.
min age at MBT is 18 if this helps you. www.mbtrading.com
I wonder what the min age here on ET is
I read Chuck E. Cheese is offering an Elite Discount with proof of age!
So what's a guy who's under 21 supposed to do if he wants a decent futures broker?
Anyone know if Velocity Futures has an age limit?
most brokers don't even verify age, you could easily just lie... trust me
"A minority of prospective Interactive Brokers Customers are sometimes required to send paper documentation. If you are in this minority you will be notified during the application process or by email."
Hmm so how do you keep out of the "minority"?
