    IBKR's platforms and API are effectively competent, advanced and stable, I won't nudge at all at the ignorable cons that you are referring to @VXP . Also their pricing is discounted enough... very dangerous as risk gets multiplied - if got no margin, don't trade IMO... Not sustainable, please...

    If you write an email to [email protected] stating that the phone call made by your spouse was just a "query call" or "a meagre status check call" and "she has nothing to do with your trading decisions". Since emails are "in writing" they would be obliged to respect that and...

    Not true... Below are not my words. We can do this all day long, our opinions won't change ground reality. Zerodha is a sucker! Last week's summary (nothing has changed over the years): 18-Oct-21 - Zerodha users face glitch on trading platform while selling shares - The Economic Times...

    I was not aware on complete waiver. Actually, this clause never bothered but some are very finicky. Quarterly settlement date is notified two weeks prior and is only applicable on funds over 2.25 times of margin required for open positions. If planned properly, i.e. on settlement date or a day...

    See, that is the thing, everyone's style is different! You cannot trust to run with Z. What will you do, when you need to exit and Z's "kati patang" does not let you login for hours during live market? How will you exit your position? What will you do, when you won't be able to modify your...
