through sharebuilder or scottrade? what do you think about this two sites? do you think it's worth to invest with them.. they charge $12 - $24 a month like a service fee. I just don't understand their system how will you earn money with them? Has anyone tried to invest through this two sites I mention above. please share your ideas..thanks! why can't we just invest directly to a company stock without going through with scottrade or sharebuilder..?

Wow thats a good rate! I invest daily using zecco and that costs me $5 a trade as I don't have a huge balance in my account but I don't mind. You can't buy directly into a stock as you need a dealer or broker as they called. These are sites but you could easily hire someone to buy direct for you if you wanted. the advantage of these sites is the charts and information they provide and tools they give you to help you with your investments. $12/month with unlimited trades would be an amazing deal!

sounds interesting..$5 a day that's $150 a month, right ? do you watch it your stock 24/7? how much do you earn with $5 investment in the stock? Yeah sharebuilder gives all the information you need to know about how the stock behave from the past up to present,comparison with the rest of the stocks, and everything you need to know about how the stock today, yesterday or tomorrow. they also give alerts if something is going on with your stock.! $12 a month is a service fee and you have to put money how much you want to invest in a certain stock. how do you cash your earning once your stock goes up.? Did you already earn here on zecco? or you just join? please share thanks..if it's good maybe I will join zecco too.

Well if you don't know a lot about the stock market I wouldn't suggest investing in it as you need to understand your risks and what your potential costs and gains are. Also only invest what you can afford to lose. I use Zecco and pay $5/trade but I am trading at least $1000 in each company, putting in $50 would be pointless. When you sell your stock the funds are in your account which you can then send to your bank. They have free trades after 12/month or a balance of $50 000.

Well I haven't personally used those two sites before. But when it comes to general investing, yes it is worth it to invest in it.

I like to invest with it but I can't just figure out on how to do it. I search ways on how the business run but I still don't understand. So many people say that it's great to invest with stocks but some also say that it is risky that even thousands of dollars will just vanish in just a matter of seconds.
