Frequently Asked Questions

What is the account minimum?
Our current account minimum for this promotion is $30,000.
What account types does CenterPoint offer?
CenterPoint offers individual, joint, and corporate accounts.
Do you accept foreign accounts?

We accept most foreign accounts. Please contact us for details.

Why don’t you offer free commissions?
You’ve probably heard the expression “nothing in life is free,” and zero-commission trading is no different. You get what you pay for. When brokers offer zero-commission trading, they do not simply eat the cost of commissions. Instead, they monetize your order flow, which may result in slower executions and subpar fill prices. While you save on commission fees, you may end up paying more overall.
Do I need a specialized trading broker?
Specialized trading brokers, such as CenterPoint Securities, are not for everyone. Our firm caters specifically to active traders who value quality order executions, advanced trading tools, and access to resources you won’t find at traditional brokers. If you place trades daily or weekly, you will likely benefit from a specialized trading broker. If you invest for the long-term, most traditional brokers will be adequate for your investing style.
Does CenterPoint enforce the Pattern Day Trader Rule?
Yes. The PDT Rule is enforced for all accounts.
Is my trading account insured?

Clear Street is a member of the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”). In the unlikely event of a liquidation of Clear Street, losses of cash or securities in the securities account of each Clear Street customer (within the meaning of the Securities Investor Protection Act of 1970 (“SIPA”)) will be covered by SIPC and the excess SIPC insurance coverage purchased by Clear Street up to the limits described below.

SIPC Coverage. In the event of a bankruptcy of a SIPC covered firm, SIPC is obligated to cover a shortfall in customer assets, on a per customer basis for each customer (within the meaning of the SIPA), up to $500,000 (including up to $250,000 for cash). While SIPC does not protect against a decline in the market value of your securities, customers under SIPA receive preferential treatment in any liquidation and are not general creditors of a failed broker-dealer. A brochure regarding SIPC coverage is available upon request or at www.sipc.org.

Excess SIPC Coverage. In addition to the standard coverage provided by SIPC described above, Clear Street has purchased excess SIPC insurance coverage from Lloyd’s of London to provide additional protection to customer accounts that have a net equity value in excess of $500,000. Lloyd’s carries an A+ rating from S&P and an A rating from A.M. Best. The Lloyd’s excess SIPC insurance purchased by Clear Street covers up to a maximum of $1,900,000 per customer account for cash and $62,500,000 per customer account for securities (in addition to the coverage from SIPC), with an aggregate limit of $250,000,000 for all accounts.
