First, you need $100,000 min in account. Second, the allocation is then made on trading activity and how long the account has been open. If you do get an IPO, and you flip it within a day or two, you will not get further IPO's for a few months. Also, the least attractive the IPO, the more assured you will get an allocation. The best IPO's only get a very small allocation to CSFBdirect. I have received about 3 allocations last year after indicating an interest in about 6. I flipped them and they cut me off for a few months(no notice-just suspicion). Hope that helps. Ed
