"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

https://www.schwab.com/ If you apply online, you should be able to begin using MoneyLink within two to three business days.
Schwab MoneyLink® is a free service that allows you to transfer funds between your Schwab brokerage account and other financial institutions at regularly scheduled intervals and/or upon request.

Maybe still not so bad idea to use that to invest in Google. Or play safer in preferred Mutual Fund, maybe Funds with a Focus on Distributions

Are you looking for trading software, low commissions, access to live brokers, etc.?

There are questions you need to ask yourself about risk and what you are trying to acomplish. How much money you are talking about, what is your age, how big of a risk taker are you what are you trying to accomplish?

SunBow has recommended Schwab. They are only a discount broker if you don't need advice, and you pay fees for their advice. I use them. So, if you are looking for software to do your trading then Schwab is no worse or better than the others.

Yahoo Finance is a good source for charts and news and technical analysis.


Here is a link to look at Schwab's software.

I've never used any of those.

I hear these founders on a daily basis on CNBC:
http://www.optionmonster.com/

I follow this option investor:

If you want to give your investment capital to someone else and they make the trade decisions then you really need no investment knowledge or education or to watch the markets daily, weekly, or monthly.
