Helpful hint:

You may log into the trading platforms through Account Management to view your account and enter orders however we would recommend logging into the trading platform if you are planning to be on line for more than a few minutes due to the fact that the Account Management system is set to log off rather quickly for security reasons and while it may appear that you can still place a trade from within the trading platform you will not actually be able to if you have been logged off or timed out on the Account Management side.  

Although we know that this is done completely for security reasons it can still be frustrating and you may believe that the platform is not working so to avoid potential stress please log into the trading platform when you want to trade.  You can then access the Account Management system from within the trading platform without causing a log off or timeout issue with your trading platform.  We still highly recommend that you guard your computer and account information at all times (and that you use our secure log in system as well as a security device) for your protection.


When you get tired of being treated like a number, notice that you are receiving less than stellar fills on your "free" or cheap trades when you believe that you are getting the best executionpaying bloated commission and margin rates or you are simply tired of getting flash instead of substance - you will know that it is time to switch to Place Trade®.
