captaineyebrow,You wrote, I am 22 years old and have never had an account before. Is there a place where I can look at the information for the most popular brokers, including hidden fees? Ideally I would open an account somewhere with no inactivity fees (I can't see myself making more than twelve transactions per year), and a minimum balance of less than $1000.There are plenty of sites that do annual broker reviews.http://www.smartmoney.com/invest/markets/smartmoneys-annual-...http://www.smartmoney.com/invest/stocks/the-2011-broker-surv...http://online.barrons.com/article/SB500014240529702035236045...http://consumerreports.org/cro/magazine-archive/may-2009/mon...Each site has its own criteria.Most brokers will open an individual account for less than $1,000. You won't be able to trade on margin of course. And buying individual stocks may be problematic given brokerage commissions.In the end surveys can only narrow the selection down to a handful. You'll have to do things like review their fee schedules and investment options on your own.- Joel
