Which Broker Do You Use?
I use ScotTrade. Love their Platform, very nice customer service, and prices are super low. Unfortuantly, though for personal reasons, I'm thinking of switching over to another broker. Any other recommendations.

I used scottrade years back from 05 to like 07 and was really pleased but I wanted to move on to learn and explore options and I never got approved. I moved on to think-or-swim who are also a very highly regarded broker.
Commission is a bit cheaper too, but the platform is a bit more complex. Scottrade is not a broker for day trading tho...jus keep that in mind.Life ends when you stop dreaming...hope is lost when you stop believing...and love fails when you stop caring.

i use ameritrade for my longer term stuff as its a safe place to park it and you dont need the best tools and its 5.00 commisions.
for daytrading I use a prop firm. Prop firms are great as you can get 10 to 1 leverage...you can even short penny stocks that blow up as you know that most of those companies are fake. And you dont even need 25k to pattern daytrade as its not a retail broker. Plus the executions are really quick. But i find that prop firms are really only good for daytraders its not necessary if your doing longer holds.
