The best place to post your question is the Discount Broker discussion board--

http://boards.fool.com/kiplingers-broker-ratings-30321628.as...

They are most up to date on how discount brokers compare. Personally I use Fidelity brokerage services. They claim to be the largest discount broker. No complaints.

As to safety, your investments are insured by SPIC. That does not insure the success of your investment choices, but it does insure against theft of assets from your brokerage account.

Some brokers carry additional insurance. That can be a question to ask.

Reading postings on the Discount Brokers board will probably remind you of questions you haven't asked yet.
