IS way to cluttered. Wal, tell me, how is the execution for Charles Schwab? I've no experience with other brokers, but if I can get a several cents more on average then it'll probably be worth switching once I have more capital to invest.
I got accounts at Schwab, Etrade, Fidelity and Merrill Lynch. Etrade charges me 5 per trade, Merrill Lynch charges 0 for 30 trades a month, Fidelity 7.95 a trade. Of all these accounts, I think Schwab would be last one on the list. I dont like their stock site. Fidelity and Etrade are better and easier to use, but Merrill Lynch is free and you can trade for free. If you want to play the pennies, Etrade is the best.
I haven't made many trades yet so I can't judge for sure how good my broker is, but so far I get fills at the price I ask for and usually sell at the price I ask for although occasionally above the limit by a cent or two. Responses by email are usually within the hour.
