I applied for the forms to open an account with Lightspeed Professional Trading. They came a couple of days ago and consisted of 33 pages of small print legalize that I am supposed to read and agree to. I haven't opened a daytrading account in about 4 years and so the idea that I have to read and understand all this crap, then agree to it and then send them 28K to open a daytrading account is a bit overwhelming, considering the fact that I know next to nothing about the brokerage firm. Consequently, I have a couple of questions that I would like to know the answer to. 1. Do brokers like IB now send their prospective clients forms that are this long and complicated. and 2. What would you do in my case. Any answers would be greatly appreciated.
