Ok, I am back to the thought of screw IB and the lack of customer service. I decided to open an account as I can trade equities and futures out of one, and feel fairly secure, but was nervous about the customer service end, which in the past made me walk away. Well, I started the process and it has been 30 minutes and I have yet to receive a confirmation email to continue the account opening process. No phone number is given to contact, just resubmit the email address, and naturally I have and still have nothing. I'm using Win 7 and Outlook, and I have a Win XP computer with Outlook Express and neither has the confirmation email. I must be the only person to follow directions and yet have issues with IB based on the responses on Elite. This is beyond irritatting. A simple phone number to call into would be a value, but that is not present on any of the IB pages I have open. I guess I should just go back to Futures only and go with my previous broker, but I though IB would have it together by now. I was wrong. F@$%@ piss me off!
