Online Trading - Schwab, E-Trade, etc

Looking for some opinions.

I am looking to start investing in some stocks, etc and have been looking at various online trading sites like E-Trade, Schwab, Scottrade, TD Ameritrade.

All seem to have pros and cons from reviews I have read.

Do any of you use any of these or recommend one in particular?

Thanks

You are better off buying mutual funds from Vanguard. Reason: they are one of the few companies that charges the lowest fee. i dont see buying individual stocks as a smart investment unless you know exactly what you are doing.

I'm quite happy with TD Ameritrade. Their commissions aren't the lowest ones, so factor in your trades volume and frequency.

I used etrade now use fidelity. Both are good options.

I am a rep so we can only use preapproved brokers. If you are just an individual investor there are many other cheaper options.

You need to specify what you need/require? Research data, cheap trades, platform/graphs, what you want to trade (options, stock, currency)? This will help you narrow down the options.

That thread doesn't really answer your question directly, but it's a good source of information on this board.

I use TD Ameritrade
