  • If you move your entire account to a Broker, you will still be able to log into Trader Workstation, and your current market data subscriptions will not be canceled.
  • Once your account has been moved, fees may be debited from my account as specified by the Advisor or Broker.
  • Accounts are moved every Friday 2:00 PM.
