Our standard trading account for an individual. Select either a Margin or Cash Account:
A margin account is a brokerage account in which the broker lends the customer cash to purchase stocks or other financial products. The loan in the account is collateralized by the securities purchased and cash, and comes with a periodic interest rate. Have a look at our Margin Disclosure to understand the risks associated with trading on margin.
A cash account does not have margin benefits. That means you must be able to cover your trade's full purchase price with the money already in your account.
Our standard trading account for two people and can be a margin or cash account. Select the type of account to fit your financial goals.
Tenants in Common (TIC)
A joint account type in which two owners each have a specific proportion of the account's assets. When one account owner dies, their assets are passed on to their estate.
With Rights of Survivorship (WROS)
A joint account type in which two owners have equal share of assets. When one owner dies, the surviving owner will have full rights to the account.

A retirement account that is opened when a designated beneficiary inherits a Roth IRA after the original owner is deceased. Similarly to the original Roth IRA, required minimum distributions are generally tax free.
Corporate accounts are opened on behalf of a legally established US entity. We currently offer C Corp, S Corp, LLC, and Partnership accounts.
