How do I buy stocks online?
do I need a paypal acct? (I have an old old one but I am locked out of it - long freaking story - so they will not issue me a new one) I do not do online banking. I do have a Fidelity IRA acct, but I want stocks , not mutual funds - want to be a bargain hunter tomorrow scavaging. Or, what is a good cheap stock brokerage house? I think we have a Merrill lynch office at the top of my (work) bldg. (hopefully no bodies jumping tomorrow) but I do not like them. Had a bad experience with them in the past/.
