Broker Question/Lee/James


I currently have separate accounts for commodities and stocks. Lee, I think you have used optionsxpress, and maybe you have too James. I noticed on optionsxpress web page they indicate you can trade commodities, stocks, and etfs from the same account. I was mulling the idea of consolidating my two accounts. Do they have a button to take you to different screen views for commodities (to enter the number of contracts) and stocks (to enter the number of shares). I've browsed some of their info over the last year, but never opened an account with them. I know they were bought by Charles S. I believe. I am going to revisit their web page again in the next day or so to get a better idea on this.
