Other people may have other ideas, but I think that to trade individual stocks you should have at least about $100,000 distributed over 10 stocks.

By that rule, I never would have purchased $4k of AAPL in '98 at a split adjusted $8/share {shrug}

Nothing wrong with buying a few individual stocks, but I tend to agree that actively trading would be a bad idea without a good base of investments.
