    Hi Everyone,
    Please go easy on me, I am just signing up to do online trading and know NOTHING about it.

    I am wondering...friends of mine have suggested in the past that I use TC2000/Amibroker. How does the data generated by these programs compare to research materials available through various online brokers?

    For example the various "ratings" of brokers tout Fidelity. I assume Amibroker etc would blow these away, and I should go with a dirt cheap broker? In particular, I am looking at ChoiceTrade.

    I am going to start very slow (not a day trader) so my number of transactions will be quite small.

    Any advice you could give would be highly appreciated - like maybe there are other more newbie forums I should check out?

    Thank you!
