I have to disagree brokerboy. Failure to seek out as much information as possbile would be the dumb thing to do. Just because one person tells me a firm is good or bad doesn't mean I'm going to take it as gospel. I'm just seeking all the data I can get. I can't tell you if I'm a good trader or not, I haven't done it yet. I think I'd be really good at it but I won't know until I try. At this point I'm here trying to learn all I can (doing my homework) so that I can have the best shot possible when I do try. Anyway, any any all information is appreciated.
