With respect to brokerages, my take is that you're always making a tradeoff whatever broker you choose. Being able to write limit orders is certainly an important advantage IB has over its competitors; had I known about that feature, I might have chosen to open up an account with IB over Etrade. Etrade, however, has generally done well by me.

Going back to River Rock, persistentone, what do you believe happened? That River Rock showed favoritism to Etrade and the bigger brokers over smaller shops like IB?
