View Full Version : Free DSL

Etrade is giving away free dsl if you open a Power account. I just saw a commercial on T.V. Here is a link I found on their website.
Need to be a Platinum member. Whatever that means. Otherwise $35/mo

Here's the low down from their site:
"You'll automatically qualify for Power E*TRADE if you place more than 30 trades per quarter at E*TRADE—you don't need to apply for membership. Place more than 75 trades per quarter and you're automatically eligible for Platinum-level benefits."
I do about 15 a quarter, I guess it's time to step it up!!
Is it really worth it? All that commission adds up.

if you are doing it just to get the dsl, NOPE. it would cost you fees of at least $450/mo. but of course if you normally trade that much anyways, then it's worth it.
It would be so cool to get their platinum account since I trade about 400 tickets per month (compare to the guy sit next to me, I am nothing, because he trades about 150~300 tickets a day!!). Pity! Etrade does not directly route your order to market and too slow for me (since I am using LEVEL II and ECN INCA ARCA ISLD NTRD ATTN REDI BTRD SOES and preference directly send order to market or Market Maker)I can earn $62.5 in 4 seconds(1000 shares lot at 1/16 spread). Orderwise, Etrade would be a pretty good brokerage firm to lose your money to me!!
