    Im pretty new to the investing although have been reading a lot. I just recently turned 18 and am interested in trading stocks. I was wondering if anyone could share their broker and personal experiences with them? Thanks.

    I haven't begun really trading, but I have been virtually trading with OptionXpress for about a year or so now. They are sending me all the paperwork via FedEx tomorrow so that I can actually begin trading with real money at stake.:eek:

    You should check them out. Great customer service even when you're not giving them money.

    Congrats on getting interested and started on investing! :)

    I would suggest that instead of purchasing stocks directly at first, that you get a good index mutual fund that follows the S&P500.

    That way you can start investing right away and follow the market. Once you understand and get a feel for ups and downs then you can venture into purchasing stocks directly via a broker.
