  1. Cybertrader: popular platform, bought by Schwab and shut down

    ToS: popular firm, bought by AMTD and left to wither and die

    OptionsExpress: shut down this week by Schwab

    There are probably others I'm forgetting.

  6. I tried NT briefly. It was way too involved. Like most of these platforms, it took too long to review my charts and load them. I prefer it real simple, stockcharts in my bookmarks.

    All governments want millions of worker ants to enslave and produce products for the government and a selected few. A government enacted transaction tax will eventually make trading for the small time individual trader unthinkable.
