Received a notice in the mail the other day.
Sometime ago, OptionsXpress merged with Xpresstrade. Now, any Xpresstrade accounts will be merged with the OptionsXpress platform. At this point, it doesn't look like there will be any major changes, other than having to get used to a new platform, and signing in on a different page. The added bonus is that in addition to trading Futures Options, this account will be able to trade stocks, bonds and ETF's. The merger and change in platform takes place on November 30th.
