Direct Access Brokers

talkpanerai : are you UK resident ?
I tried opening a CyberTrader account a few months ago and was told that it was not available to UK residents. I was wondering if this had now changed.
Yes, I am a U.K Resident


A friend of mine recommended CyberTrader and I have already downloaded the demo. They are accepting International accounts.

On January 2, 2004, the CBOT will be lowering their execution and clearing price on the Mini Dow contract, and Interactive Brokers will lower their commission on this futures contract accordingly from $2.40 to $2.06.

And a 1 point spread to boot. :)
Opening an account with IB requires a modicum of intelligence. If you possess that, then the whole process can be done and dusted within a week.

That is amazingly low on the com front - are there any monthly fees as well ?

What's fast fill like ?
