I am trying to decide on a brokerage.  I have Fidelity & Vanguard for 401Ks and IRAs, but I would like to find a broker who is less expensive for a casual trader.  Fidelity currently charges $20 a trade, which at the rate I would purchase stocks would mean my expenses would be over 3% a year.  Way too high.  I am very interested in hearing about your experiences with Think or Swim.  I would make no more than 4 trades a month on the high side.  Plus their 3 complimentary mutual fund trades a month is intriguing as I have some interest there too.  I'd love to get some opinions, so let 'em rip!
