To open an individual or joint account, you have the choice of using a secure electronic application or printing out and faxing us the trading agreement. The electronic application is more convenient for most clients. All applications will be processed within 48 hours. A minimum deposit of $250 is required.
We require a copy of 2 forms of identification in order to approve your application. One of the forms of identification must contain your address as represented on the trading agreement. The copies should be faxed with the ID Fax Cover Sheet to +1-818-728-0421.
Funds to open an account can be deposited by wire, check or through electronic payment by PayPal. Funds received by wire are placed in the account within one business day of receipt. Certified, personal and cashier's checks are also deposited in the account within one business day of receipt. PayPal will deduct a fee for funds transferred from the amount sent. Once funds are placed in a new account, you will be provided with login information via email.
Please DO NOT send funds until after your account forms have been received and processed. A member of our staff will contact you via email within 48-hours of receiving your account forms.
Please be sure to type or clearly print your e-mail address on the account application form as this will be the medium used to contact you following the receipt of the application.
For Joint Accounts, each account holder must sign at the bottom of necessary pages. An additional copy of the customer information page and the account application is required for each account holder of a joint account.
Account Manager Option
If you wish to employ another individual to trade on your behalf, a Limited Power of Attorney Form must be completed indicating the account manager who will be assigned the necessary permissions as the "trading agent." In addition, we require the account manager to complete the contract information on a copy of the Account Application Form. The trading platform enables the trading agent to collect a fee on every unit being traded.
If you intend to have an account manager trade your account, complete and sign the form provided below. Please have the person designated as your Power of Attorney submit a photo identification as well.
