Dale, I don't have much to offer, except that I started to follow what DLJ wanted to do with its online trading assets. I have been using DLJ direct since 1993 when it was called PCFN. I still do most of my trades with them. My two other accounts are with Schwab and E*Trade.

I like what DLJdirect has to offer, and the progress they made. They still charge $20 a trade, online or using IVR which is very dependable, especially if you are on the road a lot. Their desktop software "marketspeed" is evolving to be an excellent tool. It has all the features you need to do trading and reseach with a browser wrapped in it (IE based). They have streaming quotes, but not level II. I really do not need either (may change if the exchanges extend trading hours into my leisure time zone).

DLJ can be a long term hold and a speculative play due to the offering of DLJdirect as a tracking stock. It may be too much of a letgo if they do a real spin-off.

Another one I hold is SWS, the owner of mydiscountbroker.com.

Good luck with this thread. Hope it is as lively as the 50% growth!
