Hello everyone,

I used to work for a financial services firm and still have my licenses.  I have since moved on to an unrelated job, but still have interest in the industry.  I would like to buy and sell stock for my personal account.  How should I go about doing this?  Is there a way, since I passed my 7 & 66, to avoid paying fees with services like etrade?

Any help would be appreciated!

Well as luck would have it, sounds like Bank of America just announced a FREE trading platform this morning that only requires a minimum acccount of $25,000 and no license required (you won't be able to keep your license beyond a two-year hiatus anyway, in case no one told you).  Go get it, big boy.

You won’t be trading much so pay the fee
