Generate Higher Returns

Lower commissions, no ticket charges; no minimums; and no technology, software, platform, or reporting fees. Low financing rates, and higher loan values on portfolio margin accounts over $100K.

Best Price Execution

Most brokers trade against your orders or sell them to others to execute who will trade against them. The resulting poor execution probably costs you more than the commission you pay. IB SmartRoutingSM continuously searches and reroutes to the best available prices for stocks, options and combinations.

Frequent Trader's Monthly Costs

Barron's estimated a customer's monthly costs at each of the 18 brokers in this year's "Best Online Broker" ranking. Interactive Brokers was the best deal for both the occasional and frequent trader.

Average (18 brokers): $2,122 Interactive Brokers: only $839

Interactive Brokers has been building trading technology that provides competitive pricing, speed, size, diversity of global products and advanced trading tools to their clients for 38 years.

$45K! Huge day for one of our students. The Chinese stock market melted down (crashed) and pulled down the stock market in NY and around the world.

I interviewed David and asked him how he did it. Then Allen and I dissected the days so you have a blow-by-blow description of the events.

The recording is not available in this course, but you can watch it on our closed Facebook group page.

I have been day trading for the past 5 years. A lot has happened over that time to include many ups and downs. The search continued for years until I found a method that worked effectively with the help of some amazing mentors. Now, my mission is to get better everyday and facilitate others in the achievement of their similar goals.
