Options Broker?

Discussion in 'Options' started by Sarasota, Dec 30, 2001.

  1. I am going to start trading the OEX. Can anyone give me the name of a good brokerage? I think I remember seeing a post or two about optionsXpress. Any recommendations?
  2. Does anyone know anything about Benjamin & Jerold in Chicago?

    def Interactive Brokers

    When comparing brokers you may want to check out Interactive Brokers. Options are IB's forte.

    I work for them but I'm confident that others will confirm my comments.

    I'll second def's comments. Unbeatable commissions and great service. I have several accounts there now and am very satisfied...after using several other brokers in the past.
  5. and happy New Year!!!

    I trade the OEX through Schwab's Sreet Smart. Commissions are high, but I have real time charting, real time data etc. I love having the OEX chain updating in real time. They also have conditional orders, but I haven't tried that with options (only tried it with stocks). What ever you do, don't use marekt orders on OEX options - the spreads can be large and limit orders are a must.
