That's a nice comparison chart. One key feature of IB is their Universal Account where you can trade futures, stocks, and options from the same account. I'm not aware of another retail broker that offers this capability. in this case, if you wanted the flexibility to trade both futures and stocks from your IRA, moving your IRA from IB to another broker could mean splitting your funds into two separate accounts (might be with the same broker) and paying two sets of fees.
