E*TRADE and it’s E*TRADE Pro trading platform is one of the most widely used platforms today. Fills are very fast, and the platform is very straight forward, and easy to use, yet every bit as powerful as TD Ameritrade’s ThinkOrSwim platform, and it even looks better. E*TRADE also includes a debit card with standard trading accounts, that makes it very easy to spend stock market earnings, just as you would a standard bank account.

The powerful E*TRADE Pro platform, is free if you do at least 30 trades per quarter. The scanning tools are excellent, the customer service is excellent. E*TRADE is a top three broker pick.
