After much deliberation, I am planning on opening an account with InvesTrade. I have been looking for comments on their service here, but there aren't all that many. I know that earlier on their website was somewhat slow, and as usual, there were booth those who loved the company and those that hated it...

My reasoning is this:
1. cheap rates, I intend to malke less than 15 trades a year.
2. they charge a "standard" $50 IRA closing fee, so if I do decide open an IRA with them in the future, it would be pretty competitive with other brokerages.

I need to call and check on a few things (Drip's, interest on cash, inactivity fees, certificate fees), but barring anything major, I think they are a good match.

Here is where the Fools come in. My other options, in order, were:
1. Scottrade
2. Firstrade
3. Trading Direct

Is there anyone out there who has had experience with Investrade and would recommend a different service? If so, when did you have problems, and what were the problems you had? "Sucking" is bad, but not very useful as a decision making tool...
