How do you trade stocks? I'm going to go open up a cash trading account. Each trade will cost me $10, and there is a quarterly account maintenance fee of $25, which can be waived if I complete 3 trades per quarter. It can also be waived if I pre authorize $100 deposits each month into that cash account.

I am thinking about using TD Direct Investing since I bank with TD Canada Trust and hold credit cards with them.

Are there alternative platform type things to use that are better than TD? Are there any free ones?

TD has this one called "think or swim", I saw it mentioned a couple days ago here, anyways, is think or swim a good tool?

I'm not exactly new to /biz/, I sort of know some things about stocks. I've just never really actually ventured into it to buy them for myself, I have practiced on virtual traders though for a couple years now, on and off every few months.

Robin hood is free for non margin trades and had a great platform its only for mobile

Bumping for interest, I know of InteractiveBrokers.com, but they have requirement of min. balance $10k, but you have access to all the markets like NYSE, LSE, HKSE and so on.

Garuntee 99% of this board that actually invests uses Robinhood or ThinkOrSwim and not a real brokerage/platform.

I use Merrill Edge. Once you have 50k in capital you get 30 free trades a month and access to L2 data with market pro.
