I recently sold my home and I now that I have a few extra dollars I intend to actively trade the stock market. I would like to hear from those who trade the market on a regular basis and have had some success. I would like your input on which software to use. I have attended introductory seminars on several that are available, such as Telechart, Wizetrade and a few others. I have also read some reviews on this site, but some of the programs I am not familiar with (in addition to which you guys talk in abbreviations). I would also like recommendations on which "real time" service to use and also on online brokers. Commissions are a factor, but what difference is there if you get the lowest available but can't get your orders filled? Any help will be greatly appreciated. By the way, I'm not a total novice, I have limited experience but I want to devote more time to trading.
