My experience with Natwest stockbrokers has been a very pleasent one. I use the online brokering system, which provides a secure and easy way to trade shares for a minimal fee.

There are various options available when buying and selling shares (such as 'market' , 'fill or kill' etc.) and you can buy/sell by volume or by target price - which is very useful if you are on a budget! You also get to choose your settlement period.

There are cheaper stockbrokering services out there, but I have found Natwest fairly competetive for the level of service they provide. You get basically, online access to buy/sell shares through the Natwest broker and optionally a nominee account to store your certificates electronically - which saves having to deal with paperwork and saves on certain fees.

Although you don't get advice on what to buy/sell there is an extensive analytics section on the site, with heat maps, gainers/fallers, breakouts as well as in-depth material on all listed companies. You can also set up price alerts to receive SMS/email on a given price. There is also a 'virtual portfolio' section - which allows you to buy/sell shares without actually buying/selling to test whether you are on the right track when it comes to making decisions about a stock's price.

I have only traded on the UK (LSE) market, however you can trade on internationational markets and trade in funds and bonds if you wish to extend your portfolio beyond stocks/shares.

The site has good security, Natwest is a trusted authority and their experience shows. You can pay into your account online using your credit/debit card and get request funds by CHAPS/BACS/Cheque.
