I had been using Harrisdirect which was just purchased by E*Trade. As I am experiencing poor customer service with E*Trade and there charting is very rudimentary I have decided to switch to thinkorswim. Thus far excellent customer service and they use prophet.net charting which many here on StockFetcher use, including myself. Check out there website for both web based and software based trading platforms. The software based trading platform can be downloaded prior to establishing an account but with the web based you will need to open an account first. I was able to negotiate my own trading fees which did prove to be an advantage. As a second choice I was considering Ameritrade Apex for active traders. Hope this helps. Steve

I typically use market orders also for the same reasoning...the fill is more important than a difference of a few cents. I just wanted to see if thee was a difference of opinion . If you don't mind me asking, what broker do you use? My current broker was bought out by e*trade and I'm not sure I want to stick with them.

Any opinions or advice on evaluating a stock purchase, day trades {not scalping}, as regards to whether market or limit order should be used. The dilemma is do you choose a limit order to get the price but risk not getting filled or do you go for a market order to insure a quicker execution? Additionally, how should one factor in the routing that a particular broker might choose to use? To further quantify 75% of my picks are NYSE with the remainder NASDAQ and are stocks over $50 with a minimum purchase of 1000 shares.

Way2Late,

My intent is to trade full time begining the first of the year and as such will put in a full year before deciding to identify myself as a trader with the IRS. I would have very few deductions so I'm not sure if it would prove to be that beneficial. If you don't mind me asking what services to you subscribe to?

This would only become a potential problem, i.e. audit, if you filed with the IRS as a "trader" as opposed to being an "investor". Obtaining trader status allows one to maximize deductions just like any other business but your trading must be 'substantial'. My research indicates that, for me anyway, it is to risky to obtain the trader status. Remember, day trading in itself should not trigger any flags for an audit just as long has you file 'normally' as an investor (hobby) and don't try to deduct expenses that would be available only to trader status. You might check out this web address for a more concise explanation: http://www.fool.com/taxes/2000/taxes000609.htm Hope this helps.
