I used to trade with Interactive Brokers but moved over to International Brokers ( a year ago when joining a trading group here in Moscow. Good support and very professional so far.

The biggest button on most brokers web sites is the open an account or start now button , so you won't have trouble finding it. Typically that's all you need to click to launch the area of the website that can set up your account .(If you want to sign up through the mail , click a link to download the necessary forms.

Default Ask questions

Prior to opening a brokerage account make sure you ask questions about any hidden fees. Some brokers might charge you for deciding to close the account for example. You may also be able to negotiate a lower commission fee based upon the funds you intend to bring in.
