    def Interactive Brokers

    it's actually a trader signaling a one lot. at the time IB started offering services to retai we came out with comissions that were the same as professionals could obtain. the one lot signifies a leveling of the playing field.
     
  6. Man don't spoil it. I was grooving on it - totally. I mean, how cool is that? Your broker's icon showing a trader flipping the birdie!!!

    PS. You might have to consider turning the artificial-dude's wrist slightly clockwise 'cause the index finger signaling the 1-lot really looks more like the raised middle finger in an exchange of pleasantries :D
