$(*@(FSA i know threads like these are getting really annoying but it's just so hard to decide since everyone has different trading style/budget, so please bear with me ... !!! Hi everyone, I'm a new member here and have been researching on this forum about choosing a broker that best suit my budget and trading style, and I have basically come down to IB and Lightspeed (feel free to suggest more) I've been technical analysis trading for about a month now. My trading style is going to be swing trading with occasional intra-day trades b/c of Reg T rule. I have around $10k cash to play with. Reason I picked IB is b/c of the low commission and margin rate, but heard horror stories about their customer service and the non-intuitive trading platform... Is anyone/has anyone been in my boat? I'd like to hear what you guys ended up with.
