IB just rejected my application today which I don't quite understand why... (If you have an idea, let me know) Must be my age (23), but I have about 40k positive net worth with only 9k in liability with a 720+ beacon. Anyways, now that IB has shown me personally what kind of brokerage they can be, I was wondering if there's another alternative that is per share commish, data feed that integrates with QT, decent execution and ability to use bracket orders. Also, I really don't want a huge monthly fee for non activity, i.e. TS is out. IB had the right price and the right features, but unfortunately that's not going to work out. @IB, you really shouldn't reject peoples' applications and THEN leave their pending ACH transfers OPEN. That just reeks of you wanting to have my money in your account while I go through the hassle of getting my money back with an account that was 'rejected'. Very disappointed.
