Just found out that II is extending their standard deposit window, effective January 1, 2014.
Here's the word directly from II:
"Members can maximize their trading power by depositing their week and placing an exchange request up to two years before their week."
"Members who deposit their week 59 to 14 days before their week still use "Flexchange." No deposits are accepted less than 14 days before the first day of a member's week."
Any tips to share with other II members? We'd love to hear them.
