    I would appreciate recommendations for a direct access broker with the following characteristics:

    1) Reliable platform
    2) Very basic daily price/volume and technical charting including MAs and OBV
    3) Fast, easy-to-use and reliable execution
    4) Secure
    5) Financially stable
    6) $1 or there about for 500 or less shares/trade

    Thanks for any recommendations.

    Hi guys,

    I noticed that I am not getting any replies, so I took a quick look around and based upon what I have read so far, I think that both ThinkorSwim and Scottrade have the kind of reliable platform that I am looking for. Their commission rates are a bit higher than I would like for 100 share trades, but are these two platforms good choices? The problem with IB seems to be the reliability of the platform as well as support. Correct me if I am wrong. Thanks.
