Stock Trading Resources!

If you are a new stock trader or investor, you should check out some of the resources I have put together. This is a great way to get you started in the stock market and it will give you an insight that you probably never heard before to this detail and extent! I say that, because I see many books and stock websites giving you a piece of the puzzle - but I have yet seen a trader that can guide you through a large chunk of their trading to this extent. It's almost like having a mentor. I know you will find the resources below helpful for you and I will strive to continue to grow this list over time.

Stock Trading Brokers

resources-tc2000
TC2000 by Worden is my primary chart scanning tool that I use. This is the tool that you normally see me use on my daily recaps videos and screen shots.
resources-tradeking
TradeKing I like TradeKing because the stock trades are just $4.95. Options are $4.95 + $0.65 per contract. You do have a $2,000 minimum on a margin account. If you are into platforms the Tradeking Live platform is quite sleek. Get the review here

Trade StationHas a minimum of $500 for your starting account balance. $25,000 for pattern day trading accounts... So it may not be a great starting point if you don't have that much money to invest. Their pricing is $5 per trade. If you do the per-share rate you can get $.01 per share for up to 500 shares.
Scottrade Scottrade is a good online broker for people looking to just get started. They have fairly good support team and branches around the country. The fees are $7 bucks per trade. The option rates are not the best ($7 minimum plus $1.25 per contract). However the minimum is only $500. So if you don't have a lot of cash to spare then this could be a great starting point.

E-Trade E-Trade is another great starting platform. Although it would be my second choice at this point. Their stock price is $9.99 per trade ($7.99 if you do more than 150+ trades). However, for a beginner I doubt you would do more than 150+ trades per quarter. Options are $9.99 + $0.75 per contract. I must say they currently do have a nice platform.
