    Have been keen on investing the last year or so have been watching lots of people trading stocks in the us market, I have been practicing paper trading with tradezero and have been profitable and want to fund a account. Tradezero recently updated there platform and I don't feel comfortable with it anymore. Is there anyone here day trading US stocks and what broker are you using? I hear interactive brokers, suretrader and tradenet are alternatives but interested in hearing what people are using.

    I use interactive brokers, no problems and the fees are low. Has all the charting tools you need and fairly customizable (hot keys, almost a must if day trading)

    I use a stream deck tied to hot keys for fast in and out trades (earnings / news / volatility etc)

    I’ll add that using real money is very different to paper trading, as you’ll find out. Good luck and preserve your capital 😊😊

    - Learn the difference between investing and trading
    - Paper trading does not simulate reality and can be very misleading
    - The only way to make consistent money in trading is to be the picks and shovels man.
