Hi I am planning on saving some money to begin day trading. I have asked about brokers to use and was told interactive brokers is the best one to go with, however when I tried to sign up I found they only let you use their brokerage if you have a certain amount of wealth to begin with. This mean I will not be able to start trading for at least 5 years and that's too long to wait (in the damn hospitality industry) for the opportunity to trade real shares (have been using fake money and real time shares and doing quite well.) What would be the next best brokerage? I should have about $13,000 AUD in 12 months at the rate I can afford to save at. Should also add that I need to be able to trade the american markets. Thank you.
