Pleae conside what you need as you choose a broker.

If you wish to make all your own decisions, a deep discount broker with low trading fees, no minimum balance and no yearly fees would fit you.
If you may occasionaly want to ask a question (and get an answer instead of an opinion) a full service broker might suit you better despite their higher trading fees.

Be aware of all the cost and fees involved. This is what turned me away from E-Trade, their inactivity fees and low balance fees. My personal recomendation was BrownCo, who unfortunatly was bought out by E-Trade.
