My opinion on the best penny stock brokers - Etrade and Interactive Brokers have high account minimums and don’t accept people from certain countries so it's best to for people with smaller accounts to use Questrade, Schwab, SpeedTrader, Scottrade and Fidelity. I would highly recommend avoiding brokerages like Robinhood and Suretrader. Suretrader are based off-shore, allowing you to bypass the Pattern Day Trader rule but have recieved a lot of negative reviews from previous customers. Robinhood are free but you're at a serious disadvantage to your competition, it's like showing up to a gun fight with a knife. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnqadcBE57I

@zelus699 Here is screenshot of my Market Data selections in Interactive Brokers setup. Fee for general bundle waived once you get up to certain number of trades per month. Then added Level I from NYSE / AMEX and NASDAQ. I may adjust to dropping NYSE / AMEX and OTC as I get more into focusing on pennystocks. But NASDAQ Level II for sure.

Guys, this is also my question, I am currently struggling around to find out the best, cheapest and reliable broker + platform. Can you please help letting us know what's your opinion about it? I can't start with E-trade or Interactive Brokers because I don't have the minimum deposit amount to start with, but I have less than that and I am not less than 26 year old unfortunately :) Thank you all in advance with your support. Victor

Funded Interactive Brokers account today with $10,000 starting account. It is a multi-day process: application, ID verification, ACH amounts sent to bank and confirmed, completion of pending application. But online secure funding process better than writing a check and sending in the mail.....
