What online brokerage do you use?

Just curious. I haven't played the market in years but thinking of giving it a go. I used to use etrade back in the day and I wasn't too pleased with them at the time. To be fair, it was back in 2004 or so maybe they've improved.

Any suggestions guys?

I've used etrade before - didn't like it.

Recently tried scottrade - didn't like it.

Scottrade gave me 3 "free" trades. Ha. The fine print said they have to be used in 6 months of account activation. Only got 1 free trade because my stock took over 6 months to reach my target. Boo.

I use ING Sharebuilder

It's good for people who aren't looking to invest huge $$$... there is no $500 minimum deposit..

traditional trade fees are $10 compared to the $7 you get everywhere else unless you pay $24 a month for their premium account. that sucks. if you set up automatic investments it's much cheaper

I'm always looking for people who want to sign up recommend me and we both get a few free trades and a bonus I believe

Sorry if this breaks forum rules for whatever reason but if someone is wanting to start a small portfolio... you may as well get a bonus...

Thanks for the imput guys. I've been checking out the various brokerages and I'm leaning towards going with Scottrade, Just seems like a godo fit for me. I'll look into ING sharebuiklder when I have a chance and whichever I decide I'll make sure I put in a referral for someone that way one of you guys can benefit.

Thanks again...

Schwab is definitely my go to broker. I'm a tax professional and they definitely do the best job of all the brokerages when it comes to 1099s and gain/loss reporting.

Yup, I pay 9.99 a trade, they re-did their website and it's better now, I'm sure other sites already do this but it shows you % gains/losses, and +/- money made on the stocks you own, 4/5 of my Cdn stocks are in the green, 6/7 of my US stocks are in the red, heh.

All depends if your going to "trade" or "invest". And if trading of swing trading or day trading, these two things are night and day from investing. Investing it doesnt really matter, more on stability, Schwab Ameritrade Etrade all fine.

For daytrading and if your wanting tools, AMeritrades Think or Swim, InteractiveBrokers, Tradestation. Schwab has dropped commissions to almost compete with them... if you trade enough you can name your comm.

Vanguard has an individual brokerage account now, it's not too bad, depends on how much you have in your portfolio in regards to how much they charge you to trade. I use TD, nothing special, no complaints... I just tried Vanguard recently, they have a free divident re-investment program so that's nice. Plus they let you trade their ETF's free which is a plus.

Anyone ever use trade King or options house, or any of the more options focused ones? I like scottrade and their elite platform is nice but the options commissions are pretty steep.

I have moved over to Scottrade because of these exact reasons.
