    TDWaterhouse, they allow t trades which means you can buy shares and pay 20 working days later, they also allow limit buys and sells so you can enter a price you would like to buy/sell at and the trade is automatically executed if the sp reaches that price. Reasonable trade commission, very good quality service And website etc.

    I use First Direct, again no major bells & whistles but I bank with them which makes it convenient. Dealing fee is £10

    I use Halifax share dealing and have no problems with them whatsoever.

    However rather than opening a share account you may want to open a self trade isa instead (we use td Waterhouse for these). Any profits off over 10k per year won't be liable for capital gains tax as they would with a standard share dealing account. Downside is you can only top up max up a max allowance per tax year (10.2k last year I think). Td Waterhouse won't charge for the account if you have more than £5k invested but they will still have dealing charges.

    Hope that helps.

    The self trade ISA is a must.....IF you can trade the shares you want. Most AIM shares cannot be traded through the ISA
    Still keeping my fingers crossed that GKP make the FTSE and become an eligible

    Not looked myself. The Royal Mail IPO is coming up, today is the deadline to apply, I had no cash but got my grandparents to invest in their ISA as it looked like good potential. With all the media hype its either going to drop like a stone (if the city boys planted the articles for a sell off) or rise fairly rapidly as punters try to get in but not many want to sell. we shall see... could even be a short term pump and dump so good for a quick buck.

    EDIT: Reading that back I realise I have been spending too much time reading investment boards and watching Wall Street

    If you requeste under £10k you got £750 worth, if you applied for over £10k you got none. SP is 500p so goes to show the corruption in the government yet again, the IPO was massively oversubscribed so more shares could have gone to the public rather than the IIs and the sale price should have been at least 400p.

    I would have recommended Hargreaves Lansdowne but there was a debacle on the first day of the Royal Mail IPO. I tried all morning to sell the shares but there systems both online and offline has crashed. I ended up selling and making a £250 profit on the sale but should have been more as the price dropped during the hours I was trying to sell.

    Is that a flat fee inc share dealings? As TD is £5.95 pcm + £12.50 per trade.

    i have been using the iphone app plus 500 to see what this is all about as it lets you trade with play money on the live markets ...
    My conclusion is that i should not be let anywhere near a stock market with my own money as almost every lot of shares i chose lost money ! :-(
