SureTrade, Trading Direct and My Discounty Broker all will open an account for no minimum.


Trading Direct now charges $10 to transfer certificate (if you are wanting to start a DRIP through a discount broker, this is important) otherwise, the fees on trades are (in order) $7.95, $9.95 and $12.95.

No frills, but what do you expect from a deep discount broker? I have researched My Discount Broker and Trading Direct personally, and use Trading Direct. Have heard mixed reports from others on these boards about Suretrade.

I e-mailed questions to their customer support and looked at responses as part of my selection process.

And as always, your mileage may be does that go? Oh....Your Mileage May Vary.
