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.

OptionsXpress offers all three types of trading in one account. But they don't allow any futures trading in IRA accounts as of a couple of years ago.
