I am another person who retired young--age 50. For years I used a full service broker, but now I'm tired of paying him $50 every time I want to do something. That $50 could be put to better use. Now that I have a lot of time to do my own research, I am looking for a good on-line broker so I can save money. Do any of you have any opinions on which companies are better than others--or better yet, who to stay away from? I would be very interested in hearing what you have to say!

I have used www.datek.com for 2 years, trading infrequently and have had no problems at all with them. www.gomez.com rates most of the on-line brokers, based in part of the type of trading that you want to do.
