Does anyone here have an account with csfbdirect and try to get IPOs? If so, how hard is it to get IPOs? (I know it would be pretty hard to tell right now anyway since the IPO market hasn't been doing much for many months now.) I've been considering opening an account there mainly to see if I can get any IPOs, now that E*Trade hardly gets any. Do they allocate IPOs on a random basis (once you qualify), or do they allocate based on amount of money in your account, the number of trades you make, or some other factors?

I couldn't find any other message boards anywhere where they discuss csfbdirect IPOs. Anyone know of one?
