I use etrade for the last 10 years.

I would suggest becoming a member at motley fool. It has treated me very very very well.

Default Option Express

I use Option express It's Wells Fargo's version. It's pretty easy and only 8.95 per trade. Lots of trading tools and webinars to educate yourself with.

It's probably a good way to learn the market without risking a lot of dough. I certainly don't expect to make a killing, just something to play with. Always keep learning something new !!!

Your odds at winning would be better at poker than day trading.

2 on sharebuilder. It lets me gradually build a position and offers automatic investing where itll buy stocks ive picked when ive put enough money in my account. Also stocktwits and motley fool are two sites that give you views from other investors perspective. FWIW

Well if you are playing around with a couple 100K that might be ok but when you are talking about real $$ I would suggest getting a FA with a Doctorate with a good bit of background behind him and that being someone like Raymond James or M Lynch or such. Day trading I would do myself. I have the above FA. This past week I lost about a dime. If I was still doing it myself I would have been hammered. Oh BTW I bought some blue chips this week....well he did in my behalf. Why because he had positioned me some cash because it was anticipated. Again small amount penny stocks play it yourself. Real money get real help.

Invest in those legal pot farmers.(Yes, there are some that are publicly traded.) At least for the next year. After that, somebody will find a way to sue them.

Already decided thats where i'm going to put my money, i've been watching closely over the last several months and have a few companies i'm going to invest in. If i had gotten in when i wanted to i would have been +$9,500 on a $1,000 investment in a months time.

Read a story several years ago about some old folks in a nursing home that teamed up together a did real good for themselves. I'm not ready for the home yet but I do have an intrest in a group. Let me know what your thoughts are and maybe we'll kick it around.
Mac, that actually sounds like a good idea, i'm not sure if i'm ready to venture into group investing just yet though. I have a few ideas of my own and i can be pretty hard headed especially about investing money on a stock i'm not totally sure of.

What could be a good idea to start would be if there was a group of 10-15 guys that wanted to meet once a month and we just shoot the bull about our investments and what has worked for us individually. And each person bring one or two stocks to the table that we think would be a good investment for others and pitch those stocks.If someone said they had researched an Injection Molding company that was going to compete with Yeti, and they had a good pitch for the company i would be persuaded to check into that company and possibly invest in that company. Then over time as every body got to know and become comfortable with each other, group investment might work from there.
