    Brilliant... absolutly brilliant.

    In all seriousness, I wouldnt mind getting into this, and for me...... I learn by doing. I dont want to have an investment analyst tell me how/when/why/etc..... I want to learn the practical aspect myself.

    I use the tradestation platform, but I trade the dow jones on minute bars. Talk about stressful....I'm not sure about this sometimes.

    Go take a securities course or start reading some books then. Trading isn't the difficult part, knowing when to buy and when to sell is something so elusive, not even professionals can get it right. But of course they know so much inside shit about the market we don't know.

    Oh yah, if you don't know what to do, just go dump some money in mutual funds (low/moderate risk). Have it sit there for 15 years and usually good for 10% returns.

    I'm not a complete fool. I have my B.A., and am currently working through the Securities Course. The problem with this is that all my knowledge is theory based... and I want to learn some practical application. Mutual Funds are pretty basic, and I feel the best way for me to learn is to use real money; and learn through doing.

    Back to the original question... who does anyone else use? Anyone use a strictly online brokerage such as E-trade, etc?

    I use TD Waterhouse (only online). Thinking about opening an Ameritrade account as well though since there fees are only $10.99 a trade compared to TD's at $29.00. I'd keep the TD account though to trade TSX and TSX.V stocks.

    I use CIBC Investor's Edge

    I believe its $25 commission per online trade, for under 2000 shares.

    The tradestation platform I use is $5 commisions. It is also $100 US for the month. Pretty good platform to use.
