What site should I use? I have a couple of friends who use Scottrade, but I've read that OptionsHouse is cheaper and possibly better. Anything else you'd recommend?
Any other stock trading tips out there?
For investment advice, I recommend the blog The Big Picture. I can't advise you about investing, but he has a lot of good advice on how to choose a strategy and how to avoid the mania of others. In fact, this post on why most people fail at trading is probably a good place to start.
