I was looking to get into online trading with some extra money that I have. Anyone here do this? If so some advice/tips would be great.

Id advise you to look at FOREX trading.
Stocks=Boring, Currency (forex)=dont know anything about it. But I've been finding options trading quite fun. Big risk, but if you know what's up, big reward. Much quicker cash generation than buying/selling stocks at the casino. Ex. (patting self on back)...I started hitting the casino for the past month (want to buy another car)...nice overall 80% gain.

Been doing it for a while - have fun with it. My suggestion is to practice with a fake account (most online brokers allow u to do this) until u you feel comfortable with it.
I like watching CNBC throughout the day to see whats effecting the market. A great show to watch is Fast Money on CNBC (2 and repeated 5pm - pacific time) IMO.
