    So pick one.
  3. Guess I should have read there website first, I get refunded for the fees, sorry.
  4. When I first got the email I thought it was pretty lame too, especially since I hadn't heard of any fee increases with other brokers. I was gonna cancel my account and go elsewhere out of principle but then they told me that you get refunded $1 of that fee for every trade you make. This makes it free if you daytrade in any significant quantity.
