  1. Looking for a new retail broker

    I'm hoping for some input/recommendations for a new broker.

    I currently trade at IB and am reasonably happy, but always looking for ways to improve my buisness. I think it might be particuarally interesting if there is anyone out there who has left IB, that would be willing to share the experience with another broker.

    About me:

    I trade retail.

    I do not need/want additional leverage.

    Volume is anywhere from 30k-50k per day (every day) and growing.

    Trade equities only (equal weight nasdaq and listed) on a discretionary basis.

    My "wish list" vs. IB

    In a "perfect world" my "short list" would be unlimited. It would also be helpful not to wait for an "uptick" on listed.

    I'd like to be able to trade premarket b/f 7:00 a.m. est. if possible

    Many thanks in advance for any input.
