Which broker are you using and why?

There is a hodge podge of broker information. but most try to compare one broker to another. Here is the idea; tell us which broker you are using and no more than any three reasons. That would let us make an unbiased judgement for choosing a broker. Just fill in the short blanks.

Cheers!

Broker: ................................

Reasons:

1. .......................................
2. .......................................
3. .......................................

Mirus/RCG/Zenfire

1. At the time I opened the account Zenfire was a big deal

2. Prices were reasonable

3. They popped up first when I Google'd Zenfire

I'm just a simple man trading a simple plan.
