Finding a reliable brokerage is the number 1 task if you plan to achieve success, so good that you are awared of that and seek for our help. Look, what you need - you need a company with strong REPUTATION at first. You should read some reviews, check websites with opinions about brokers and, if possible, connect with other traders to get first hand info. I suggest to make a pull of 2-3 brokers among others and than pay a week to google as much info as possible and then make a decision. You can even create a thread with 'brokername' is okay? to find some objective info.
