re: brokers do not except cash, must be a check deposited into your account.

review the above list of discount brokers with minimum donations required to open an account.

When making a purchase for the first time, use limited orders only. Same for when selling. click on the video. when buying the stock, check off the box GTC 'good 'til canceled" meaning....tell the broker to keep trying for a given amount of time until the deal is done and the stock has been bought or has been sold.

If you need hand holding for the first time, I would recommend that you visit the office of a broker such as Scottrade and they will gladly walk you through the procedures step by step. Or ask a close friend or a family member for guidance in making your first purchase.
