Don't get suckered in again unless you can and are able to make very quick moves. It's a stock pickers market right now. I feel bad for my 401k customers who make a little money, then get their lunch handed to them. Last year = 3 good quarters, but sandwiched in between, a devastatingly bad one. Result? Most of them lost money for the year, some more than others, and partly due to market conditions, partly due to mutual fund fees that are too high, and mostly due to their own panic.

I absolutely hate people who can't understand investments are for the long haul. My sister (32 now) was asking if she should pull her money out of her 401k every dip for the past couple years, the answer is always the same... NO! An interesting article on market timing versus long term investing http://www.fpanet.org/journal/Curren...uyandHoldDead/

Great link!

Nobody in there right mind would try and debunk the long term way of investing, what also should be respected though is the short term buy and sell.--- especially if the short termer is not totally relying on profits from investments and if he is indeed redistributing his divs to more secure long term securities.

I doubled my money on a random stock in two months, local minerals company merged with another small company but only had 1025 into it.

Off the top of my drinking head? Trade commissions suck, slow execution, terrible charting software, lack of decent proprietary indicators, no decent programmable functions, inability to customize chart settings with continual saved settings. Should I go on? Of course, that only includes the Scottrade Elite problems from the last time I tried their crap a bit ago, they may be slightly better today (though I doubt it).

I use ThinkorSwim (pre-TDA merge so I have the old pricing which is much better than the new TDA prices) for most option/equity/futures trading. Even with the new prices it's about the best for options, TradeKing is about the best for equities right now on it's own. Overall, TDA is still about the best overall platform for non-paying platforms if you want charting/equities/options and futures, though their futures execution is fairly slow making it not great for very short term trading. For options you should look at the ThinkorSwim platform (free even with a paper account) combined with OptionsHouse. For best execution + price + research of equities then I'd go for TDA with ThinkorSwim with TDA for research/charting and go with InteractiveBrokers for equity trade execution and pricing.

All of the above is assuming an individual trader not making enough trading to pay for proprietary software to speed up execution, charting, or individual functionality.
