I recommended IB to another who wanted to start trading based upon products offered, commissions, and account minimums. It was pointed out to me that IB now requires a 10k minimum to open an account. I said no, it's 5k. It was even backed up by def in a thread a while ago. But he pointed it out to me and there it is on their webpage. http://individuals.interactivebrokers.com/en/accounts/fees/minimumDeposits.php?ib_entity=llc But when I access the account application forms, it lists the minimum as 5k: https://www.interactivebrokers.com/Universal/servlet/formWelcome?p=100&atype=IT Is this a typo on the first link or was the second link not updated yet?
