    That's not basic! That's a pretty important question!

    For me, it's the following...

    My e-signal charting package (though you can start off with BigCharts, which is free)

    OptionsXpress, my options and stock trading platform (though I'm considering a move to Think or Swim).

    And IG Index for spread-betting on currencies and commodities (though if you're in the States, I think your government made this an illegal practice there. Probably because it's tax-free :biggrin:)

    Oh, and I also use Dynamic Trader 5.0 for currrency charts sometimes, though e-Signal largely makes this irrelevant now.

    Bear in mind I'm a full-time investor. You can get started with BigCharts, Yahoo! Finance and an online trading platform, no problem at all.

    Let me know if I can be of any further help.
