Choosing a broker

    Hello, I need a little help. Been out of trading for a few years but looking to do some swing trading and maybe a little ES, NQ, and ER from time to time. I am looking for a broker that I can access from work (web based platform) and is relatively inexpensive for a retail trader. I am not sure which brokers can service all those needs, if any.

    I used to trade through IB when I was an intraday trader, but now just primarily swinging with an occasional option and futures trades.

    Could you folks steer me in the right direction

    Many thanks and good trading to you.

    Why not go back to IB? Can access TWS from browser, also can use the more discreet (but very slow) WebTrader feature.

    You're familiar with the platform. You know how cheap IB is when it comes to commissions. Seems like an easy choice to me.

    After I posted, I saw the web feature, did not know they were browser based. Does make it simple, thanks
