I agree with JABoa. I don't think paying >$30/trade is a good idea with all the cheap-trading brokers out there, but when your paying $10-$20 per trade only a few times per year, it's still a pretty small percentage of your investment.

However, you should review the online brokers at some place like before selecting one. I selected SURETRADE because of their no-minimum and $8 trades. However, I haven't been very happy with their web site. It seems to have a lot of bugs and too much down time. And "THE BRAIN" automated response system has yet to answer one of my questions. But once again, you don't need to use it very often. Just depends on what is more important to you.
