    I am new to day trading and am looking for a brokerage firm for day trading us equities. IB and Speed Trader are at the top of my list. Any information on either broker, or I suppose other brokers although I've eliminated quite a few for one reason or another, would be welcome.

    I will initially be trading fairly small positions including odd lots and want a great platform with all trade orders executable through keyboard commands. I think both firms fit the bill but would like to know the experiences of others.
