I too am looking for an online broker. I've been pooring over this message board for about a week now. What I've learned (and anyone who's worked on a help desk has learned) is that the comments you'll see here are going to be mostly negative. Nobody posts messages saying "I had my trade executed in 10 seconds, and one of the company's brokers called me to verify that that's what I really wanted to do."

I know suretrade got a lot of heat earlier in this board (and I don't too much of their TV advertising anymore, either.) I'm currently flipping the coin between E*Trade and Ameritrade.

I think these two are the biggest...image how many new accounts they get each day, and how much money they recieve each day! I can't believe their IS department, broker department, phone support people can keep up. It must be madness...but sometimes that's good!
