New here and just about to get my feet wet with day trading. I want advice on picking a broker to start with. The Elite Trader broker page has a 65 percent thumbs up for MB Trading, but there were some harsh comments as well, although some of those date back to 2009. Barronâs 2011 review gives them a pretty good rating. Iâm currently employed but will retire Sept 2012 and figure a year out is good timing to put some things in place. Starting out modest and patient, reading books, paper trade, hanging out here and few other places. My goal is to ramp up and then go full time by 9/12 for extra cash. I plan to start off cash day trading with $1,500 and build from there. It will be tough at first with the 3 day settlement rule.
