s3d1r901,

I agree with both dgthepiper and TMFPixy. Take a look at the link TMFPixy provided and drop by the DISCOUNT BROKERS board for testemonials.

If your looking for a story, here's mine:

After 25 years I decided to leave Merrill Lynch and my broker, Churnum Quick. I asked my accountant, Maximus Bean, who he used. Bean said he had been with Waterhouse for years and was completely satisfied. I didn't have time to do the research and trusted Bean implicitly. They opened four accounts and transferred all my holdings within about 45 days. I got writers cramp, but other than that it was painless.

It was a good decision. Waterhouse is one of the largest deep discount brokers. They offer broker assisted, telephone, and on-line trading. Commissions for 5000 or fewer shares run $45, $35, and $12 respectively. Occasionally, in the past, I have had to wait for on-line trading; but they seem to keep upgrading their service. I trade only occasionally, and I am seldom in a hurry to do it. Waterhouse has never caused me a problem in that regard.

Waterhouse also gives you access to free S&P reports on most stocks. Check them out at http://www.waterhouse.com/

One man's opinion.

Cheers,
GW
