Posted by: keanwai Dec 12 2006, 07:16 PM

Good Luck wink.gif

Hi Marktw69,

You can check out www.optionsxpress.com as that have no min to open an account....
But in my personal option, $100 is really too little to start investing. Considering most in the money options will cost alot more plus comissions.

Cheers
Brian

May depend where are you located.
Otherwise, very simple, do the search, pick site with lowest commissions (or sign up offers), check if the site have been online for a while (Alexa), sign up, verify and GO.
Many banks have trading sections too.
Pay attention to fees for level II quotes (if any)
Pick sites that have nice graphing.
If you can, set dack background on graphs, a bit easier on eyes.

In US, my picj is Ameritrade. They are a big merger of several independent firms operated independently in the past.

Best of luck. smile.gif

There many discount brokers out here that allows one to open an account with $100...ie lowtrades, choicetrade, tradingdirect etc...do check there websites for more details... wink.gif

I use TDameritrade and like it OK but have been looking at zecco.com

Is anyone familiar with zecco.com they claim you can trade stocks free up to 40 trades a month and it's not introductory but there is a $30 yearly maintenance fee (might be a problem for $100 account)

But TD charges $10 per trade even that will get into your budget fast

If anyone is familiar with zecco please respond

zecco.com only charges the $30 annual fee for IRA accounts. So if somebody have only $100 to start, zecco.com is the way to go.

I'm thinking to switch over too smile.gif

try CFD on stocks...

as for my broker you can buy microsoft stock at $15/per stock

1 lot if $15x1000 = $15k of course

current price is $30+

this is because of leverage 2:1

$100 you can make money provided if your skill enough

some trades can make $500 to $3k in less then 24 hours....so it all depends on your skill

hope it helps

OptionsXpress would be a great choice since they have a complete set of learning tools. education is the key to makeing consistant profits in the market.

One feature they have is Virtual Trading. Here everything happens in real time and with commisions charged so you can test out your ideas and profit, or loss, potential with play money and not your own real money.

Practice, practice, practice - BEFORE YOU USE REAL MONEY.

There are a number ways to make money in any market with a fair amount of safety but you need to know how to protect yourself.

We have been with OptionsXpress for years because they are one of the few brokers that let you trade what you want and how you want. Ameritrade, Scottrade etc., all of the big old tired brokers, force you to only trade the way they decide and most of them will lie to you to make their point - I hate them.

We have had accounts with all of them over the years and most of the well known brokerage houses are fools and worse.

how much is needed minimum ?

Posted by: bazmanblue Mar 9 2008, 07:10 AM

not many brokers would be interested in opening an account for just 100 dollars

Posted by: financestrategy May 16 2008, 11:02 AM

hey buddy
first of all i would like to suggest you that you must put in some more money. you have a very limited funds to invest. secondly you must take decision as where you would like to invest. online broker is not a big deal you will certainly get one if you search. i guess lot of names and sites are mentioned so you can get the best deal.
but try to increase your funds in order to have high returns
good luck pal smile.gif

Is not hard make money with 100USD, is just that takes more time, try www.planetainvestment.com and reinvest until you get high profit or use the referral program, it has worked for me great.

Choosing a Broker


Depending on the type of investing that you plan to do, you may need to hire a broker to handle your investments for you. Brokers work for brokerage houses and have the ability to buy and sell stock on the stock exchange. You may wonder if you really need a broker. The answer is yes. If you intend to buy or sell stocks on the stock exchange, you must have a broker.

Stockbrokers are required to pass two different tests in order to obtain their license. These tests are very difficult, and most brokers have a background in business or finance, with a Bachelors or Masters Degree.

It is very important to understand the difference between a broker and a stock market analyst. An analyst literally analyzes the stock market, and predicts what it will or will not do, or how specific stocks will perform. A stock broker is only there to follow your instructions to either buy or sell stock… not to analyze stocks.

Brokers earn their money from commissions on sales in most cases. When you instruct your broker to buy or sell a stock, they earn a set percentage of the transaction. Many brokers charge a flat ‘per transaction’ fee.

There are two types of brokers: Full service brokers and discount brokers. Full service brokers can usually offer more types of investments, may provide you with investment advice, and is usually paid in commissions.

Discount brokers typically do not offer any advice and do no research – they just do as you ask them to do, without all of the bells and whistles.

So, the biggest decision you must make when it come to brokers is whether you want a full service broker or a discount broker.

If you are new to investing, you may need to go with a full service broker to ensure that you are making wise investments. They can offer you the skill that you lack at this point. However, if you are already knowledgeable about the stock market, all you really need is a discount broker to make your trades for you.

yes 100 bucks is too little.!!!!
u cannot manage money with the tight restrictions 100 bucks will impose on u..
id suggest save up and perhaps start with atleaset 1000$, ..you want to be in it to make money not loose it and an account with 100 $ has the odds stacked againt it.. ever heard about the staatistical problem of "gamblers ruin"..google it..

Customer satisfaction with Finexo is relatively high as they cannot find much fault in this broker. This is definitely because Finexo tries to cater to the wants and desires of its customers to make trading as great as they can. This is something that you probably wont find in many other brokers.

Posted by: optimist5 Feb 22 2010, 10:54 AM

You could open account with Zecco with $100, just $4.50 per trade and no fees. Hope it helps.

Trading CFD's stock is a good idea instead of trading stock. I think DeltaStock and CMCMarkets are a good broker.
