    What online trader site do you use?

    I will be starting a portfolio for my daughter soon and I am looking into online trading sites.  I have used etrader before but was not overly impressed with them.  I have heard good things about fidelity but I am looking for opinions while I am looking into this matter.

    It's been a while but I used Share Builder which was good for me since I am a novice.

    It really makes little difference unless you're going to be doing a lot of trading; buying and selling frequently. In that case your commissions will be a bit higher. Not sure if it matters though because you might have staggering losses anyway. Individual investors who trade actively are chum to institutional investors (sharks).

    I use options house. It's the least expensive and has great tools.

    I use to use etrader, but I am changing pretty much everything over.  My track record is better than my broker's currently.  And a trade through him cost me a min. of 42.50 where most of the online sites are as low as 4-5 dollars.

    I did not like that etrade charged me commission and then a yearly as well.  So atm I am looking at Zecco.  I will be checking out the ones that everyone mentioned as well. 

    Thanks to those who contributed
