Good UK broker?

Hello,
Im looking for a good UK broker to day trade with that allows you to trade in US stocks, has a good platform similar to ninja trader or MT4.

It would be preferable if they didn't have any stupid fees like deposit fees, annual account fees ect..

Free charts and data feed. Has all necessary indices S&P 500, DJI, NASDAQ composite and also the TICK and TRIN.

Oh and low commissions would be awesome, I'm a jew.

Thanks, Sam

With Ninja, pretty much IB or MB:

MB Trading - Stocks

To be blunt, I wouldn't personally touch MT4 with someone else's bargepole...

EDIT - BTW these aren't UK based, but if you want ninja thats it.
For UK brokers its pretty much outright unleveraged long only,
or spreadbets / CFD.

No IB don't do spread betting.
You are buying the stock, with all the fees that go with it:
https://individuals.interactivebroke...stocks2#europe
https://individuals.interactivebroke...s&p=europe_stk
https://individuals.interactivebroke...products&p=stk

If you're new to this I'd suggest you stick with spread bets or CFD's.

RobertGO started this thread Ok, thanks.
I have found plus500, its not good for any analysis but it charges premiums overnight, so I could get away with not paying anything for most of my trades that I do. They are UK based to and have lots of shares. They dont alow scalping (Which I dont mind as I dont intend to) But also no hedging...
Should I find a broker who is a bit more relaxed and offers a good platform or just pay for ninja trader but use plus500 for my trades?
If anyone here has used plus500, can you tell me what you think.

Thanks Sam

Thinking of using tc2000 for analysis? Any good?

I can recommend FxPro ( I use them) , their mt4 is good for scalping

I trade on both cTrader and MT4..no slippage during news which is very good and they don't wide spreads during the night when market is quiet.

Hi Sam,

Probably London Capital Group can help you with that.
