Dear List members

Since any investment strategy should ensure safety of principal, having a safe broker is an essential part of the strategy

The broker should also NOT be too expensive , that he makes trades impossible

Could you please share your experiences with various online / discount brokers you know of ... ?

Interactive brokers is one name that springs up, but are there any other ?

RE Hypothecation risk is also often times mentioned, though I can't fathom who is the angel and who's the devil in that game

Of course, all posts / replies are for sharing information only and I *will* do my own due diligence before investing with / opening an acct. with anyone ...

thanks for sharing
