Hi everyone,

I have recently left my job and am going to do a direct 401k rollover into a traditional IRA. I have been doing some research on all the discount brokers but ones that are recommended like IB and Etrade have some issues for me.

IB because I barely even understand how their fees work let alone comprehend their trading window and Etrade, of course, because of their recent fall from grace. It might help if someone can tell me is there a minimum number of shares I can buy through IB? I was doing their demo and looked up sasol is it a minimum of 100 shares or a $100 minimum?

Anyway I wanted to see what are some other options. I don't want to do sharebuilder, I have a roth ira through them and i find i don't like the only buy on Tuesdays thing.

So anyway I'm asking here because I believe that y'all will have more knowledge of a good broker for the international stocks.

I have around $15,000 in my 401k and i plan on buying only stocks through several of the newsletters i subscribe to through fool.com.

Thanks for any help.
