I was wondering if anyone here on the forum can help me out.
After speaking to various fund managers on how to break into the industry I have been advised that unless I am trading myself, then many firms will not look at me.
With this in mind I am looking to open an online trading account, however, I am not too sure which brokerage I should use. Ideally I would like one with decent video tutorials and one that is cheap because I am just starting out. I would also like one that provides quite a bit of research.
After looking around I came across one called Zecco which is cheap ($4.95 stock trades) and has it’s own video tutorials, as well as a forum and a detailed blog.
What are other people using and what advice would you give me in my situation?
