what retail broker has most products *and* cheapest price besides IB?

  1. Looking for a new backup broker with low commissions and plenty of products.

    Want access to futures, options, stocks ... with flexible margin rules, great platform (maybe good option modeler) ... and did I mention dirt cheap commisions?

    Is IB *really* the only game in town if I want .75c/contract no minimum ticket options?
  2. The "problem" is that you are looking for an all-in-one account. This limits your choices.

    As for an all-in-one, RML Trading is probably your best bet. Options carry a published .85 commission, but every other aspect of your business is negotiable, stocks, futures, options, forex.

    If you go the more specialized route, Just2Trade offers .60 options. ChoiceTrade offers .75 options. Both also offer stocks. You'll need a separate futures broker.

    An after thought for all-in-one, check NobleTrading. Stocks, options, futures, forex. Including several International exchanges. Published rates are high, but they will negotiate "somewhat". Until you ask you never know.


  3. thanks.
