I'm a new investing student too. So far, I've found that when trading very little, all that really matters is minimizing comission. Some of the more expensive discount brokers probably have better research advice and vehicles--but you have the Motley Fool and the rest of the internet at your disposal.

I'm using Ameritrade. I have heard a million complaints about it, but the complaints are all in regard to trying to sell a million shares in a nanosecond, and very specific personalized requests. I have been very happy with Ameritrade: every time I call them with a very specific question they have gone beyond the call of duty in trying to answer my questions. Maybe it is because I'm nice to them?

If you're just going to be investing and moving funds here and there, probably any of the internet brokers should float your boat; I can't imagine the trading process differs much from one to the other.
