yea also looking into futures but don't necessarily understand them. however you don't think td ameritrades commission is way to much .. its forcing me to not be a day trader which to me is probably more profitable , however more carefulness and broad research of the market period is required. I'm a little scared but i feel as i will do the unthinkable !

tdameritrade stock commissions are a tad high at $10 flat rate, especially if you are trading smaller dollar amounts. however, as you trade larger dollar amounts the fast and precise executions the platform allows more than make up for the $10.

i trade e nasdaq minis, symbol /nq, using brackets orders. they trade essentially like stocks and are about $3 per contract.

each contract is valued at 20 x's the nasdaq 100 or currently 20 x 4341 = $86,820. so each point a contract of the mini moves is $20. they also trade in quarter point increments, and mirror qqq very closely. margin maintenance requirements are @ $5000/contract.

if you want to cut back on commissions open an account at IB. they charge .005/share. place bracket orders. you can use the tdameritrade software and place trades over at the IB website.

fyi-tdameritrade has an offer for new accounts of 60 days of commission free trades.

trust me mate, mac or pc are the least of your concerns if you are new to forex, it cant even be a condition for a good broker merely on if they do have platforms for mac or pc, well most brokers have both anyway. just take is slow and decide wisely.

Yeah hardware doesn't matter (of course minimal technical requirements should be met to run the platform). What does matter is speed and image of your broker, how do they care about clients and whether they have a philosophy that goes beyond money.

Looking for a broker that has good leverage and good spreads.

Expecting for a lower commission broker who is reputed and has a regulation as well.
