First, let me ask , does IB have a debit card program like Scottrade does? I would hate to have to pay commission every time I want to sell stock to take money out for my living. Ok, now onto the question. IB Vs. Tradestation. Which do you prefer and why? I weighed out the pros and cons for direct access and active trader prefered brokers and I feel IB is the winner due to the commission price. However, tradestation does have it's award winning platform for free if you do 5,000 or more active trades.. What broker do you like better and think is the best for active day traders?
