The online broking company "Interactive Brokers" looks attractive with its promises of $6 per trade commissions. However, it appears to be designed for professional traders who deal in big bucks than with the everyday traders.
I'd be grateful if anybody who uses or knows about this broker can give me some advice. In particular, if there are any hidden nasties like fees, minimum trades, commissions etc involved. Or, if you have had great and reliable dealings with these guys and there are no hidden extras I'd be interesting in hearing about it.
