[Newbie] Broker selection: Saxo VS IB (I have <100k in stocks)
Apologies if this question has been asked a million times but was wondering, for those who switch from Saxo > IB or are considering the 2 what were some of your considerations. I am a beginner investor so I do not trade so many times a year. I started trading this year and will likely trade about 3/4 times a year, 5-15k lump sum to 1 ETF every time. I know much of the praise for IB is the reduced fees (trading fee + forex), however after reading multiple websites and it says that IB is only good for - Frequent trades - > $100K portfolio For forex costs I’ve opened a subaccount in SAXO and would be putting in the foreign currency via Transferwise I am planning to sell all and move to IB when I hit 100k. (i think it would take a few years) is this wise? I am wondering for those who have shifted from Saxo > IB or decided to start with IB what were your decision-making criterias?
