Any Recommendations for Online Trading Platforms

I am very new to stock trading and have been doing a lot of reading about charts in trading, strategies, etc. I am now at a point where I need to start actual trading but would like to get recommendations on online trading platforms that I can use to trade. Perhaps a platform with possibilities for paper/virtual trading for my practice before I start committing money. My interest is swing trading for now. Thanks.


  • I have been using optionsexpress. I think it's user friendly and less hectic than other platforms but the commissions are high.

    I downloaded other's like Think Or Swim (TOS) and Ninja Trader. For me those platforms were very busy and confusing. These are probably better suited for the more active and experienced trader. Most systems have a paper trading feature.
