Tradestation credit interest rate on balances over $10,000 is 1.125%! That's highway robbery!! To compare, IB pays 4.55% (LIBOR-0.50%) over $10,000. On a balance of $100,000, thats $3,082 LESS interest that you get paid by Tradestation than IB. So for daytraders, who end the day flat, that $3,082 that you are losing per year for every $100,000 that you have. On top of that, Tradestation charges $99.95/month for its software, a lot of other brokers don't. Plus higher commissions than most other active trading retail firms. Can anyone tell me the benefit to being with Tradestation over other brokers?
