Are there any good online Brokerage firms for trading stocks, bonds but importantly Index funds.

I am after one that has preferably low loads/commision and transaction fees but importantly low yearly/monthly maintenance fees. Aftre reading on the net, sharebuilder.com & etrade.com seems to be reasoably recommended ones.

Any experience with online brokers will be great

Looking for brokers dealing US index market funds.

Thanks

Not sure about online trading but Craigs ABN Amro are pretty good for both local NZX and international stuff such as the NASDAQ. You could check out their commisions. Their offices are over in Takapuna.
In terms of success you can't beat a thorough knowledge of the company, commodity or currency that you wish to trade or invest in for getting a good return on your investment- and be patient. Also NEVER invest more than you can afford to loose if you want to stay of of financial strife since not all trades bring financial success.
Their site is here http://www.abnamrocraigs.com/
