Which are the best brokerage firms to trade through?
Was looking to get another brokerage firm besides my current one...TDAmeritrade. Looked at E-trade...its owns stock has gotten punished in the last 1.5 years for some reason. How about Schwab or Fidelity? Any insight greatly appreciated.
If you're systematically putting money in (I haven't used it to trade, but it's $9 I think) then I like ING Sharebuilder. I joined by finding out about it at Costco. You go there and put in your card or code, and they give you $60 (I think) after your first trade. You put in an order by monday at 3 and on Tuesday they make the trade for $4. Again, you don't control the price/limits or anything. But you can also use it to trade. Not sure if that's what you're looking for. I also have a TD Ameritrade acct.
