Off Topic Question about finding a new brokerage firm
I am looking for a new brokerage firm and wanted to know everyone's thoughts on which ones people use. I am currently looking at TradeKing which I have never heard of. Seems to get good reviews and commission for a stock trade is 4.95 (market or limit). They also have streaming quotes and good research information.
If anyone uses TradeKing can you please provide your thoughts? Also, if anyone has any other recommendations that would be great.
My main criteria is low cost trades, streaming quotes, and good information research.
