I have accounts with two different discount brokers. I have an account with firstrade and the trades are $6.95 but the site leaves a lot to be desired I think. Its difficult to understand the information.

My other account is with Datek. I LOVE them. Trades are $9.95 for both limit and market orders. The site is a bit slow but is fantastic. Executable trades are done is 60 seconds or the trade is free. Every trade I have made has been done in less than 10 seconds with the exception of one that took 72 seconds and guess what? It was free :) I am sure there are other goods out there as well, but I would recommend anyone at least look at Datek before opening an account with anyone else.

Good luck to all.
