I have been trading for 5 years now, have been with scottrade since the start. I have been changing my trading style and need lower cost commissions to make it worth while. Is Interactive Brokers the best for a pay per share broker? Currently with Scottrade. Also, I have a couple of positions I dont want to liquidate, when trafering from Scottrade to another retail broker due I have to liquidate or can I do an "in kind" transfer(similar to no qualified transfers?) Any guidance would be appreciated.
