Thanks Jerry! It's actually cheaper to just put in $500 since the premium access will obviously cost more as it's really just idle cash and the bad part is Ally Invest does not pay interest for cash balances like the other brokerages do. I can always do a small trade with that $500 and try to make it higher over time since the risk is lower with a smaller amount.
Just a suggestion, maybe they should really look at the minimum balance requirement with Ally in general so that it can be with the Ally Bank or Ally Invest as a combined balance thing as the bank side is paying 1.20% in interest.
When opening a account, I noticed that there is actually 3 different accounts one can open, one being a Ally Invest, another being a MB Trading and the third one being Trade King. It seems when I talk to Ally Invest, they said Ally Invest is basically the Trade King platform so it does not support Level 2 quotes while MB Trading does so out of the three, would opening it via MB Trading actually provide the most data features?
On another topic, there should probably be a About MedvedTracker on the main home page with the history from the beginning of QT so people will know what it is.
