Checkout Scottrade before going with E-Trade. They have lower rates and less fees.

As for what to invest in, well, you really ought to do your own research. Read a few books on investing, such as One Up On Wall Street by Peter Lynch. Start reading The Motley Fool website, and read The Wall Street Journal, Investor's Business Daily, or Barron's once a week.

Also, you need to figure out what time horizon you are investing for. If you want to buy and hold for the long term, you'll likely invest in stocks that are very different from those that you would invest in for a year or less.

I may be wrong... but I don't think they let you trade futures with an account of only $2500.

Yeah I checked Scottrade they looked pretty good I like the cheaper comission and only 500 to open an account was pretty nice. So theyll charge me 7 dollars if I trade 1 share or 500 right? or is per share that I trade.

My advice: put that $2500 into day trading ONLY if you could, seriously, throw it into a storm drain and not care.

If I were you I'd watch Jim Cramer's Mad Money on CNBC at 6/9/12 PM EST.

Cramer's advice is pretty solid. He's crazy, but his stock advice isn't.

If you have to ask a forum for stocks to trade you don't know enough to trade stocks safely.

In that case I'd recommend investing in index funds or ETFs. Vanguard sp 500 index or Spiders.

read the fine print and look at all of your options. You really have too compare all of the alteratives and look at the competitiors in the feild and see what is best too you. Watch out with the inactivie fees also check with your accountant with the % you will have too pay in taxes on this b/c if your put in $2500 you want too maximize ROI and not get choked with paying fees.


Alot of people get owned on the taxes part of it. also if your going too day trade then it becomes more complicated. Hit the barnes and noble and check out a couple of books.

Hedge funds & a 401k is a bit safer.
