I'm trying to get starting in online investing and I was wondering if you guys could share your positive/negative experiences with online brokers.

Also...what do you guys think of AMD, Real Networks, Covad, and AT&T stocks?

try Datek
They proveide free and unlimited streaming quotes and have low fees. But the best things is that there is no minimum to open an account. $2000 is the min if you want to buy on the margin.

AMD's stock price seems to shadow intel. So if Intel goes up, so does AMD. At least for the time being. If Amd can expand its prod capacity it can take a significant share of desktop pc's from intel.But the real profit lies in the server high end market. Hence AMD760 smp and the sledgehammer. Looks pretty good for AMD. Probably not a good short term investment, but definitely long term(1yr+). Mind you this is just my HO. :)

I personally use Etrade...I don't give stock advice due to the increasing volatility of the market :)

I'm looking at Ameritrade, there is a minimum $2000 opening but $8 trades and instant account funding, no form to send back...

I'll look into Datek though

Thanks
