discount broker of Choice
Curious, who is your Favorite Discount STOCK broker? I have been using TdAmeritrade, but getting Awful, Awful fills (not favorable ) since they got bought by Charles Schwab
Also, Tastytrade seems to have an Enormous learning Curve... Finally figured it out, but now realized that a great many Options they don't permit Trading in
I liked Interactive brokers, but u need so many devices, just to be Able to log-in which is terrible, while traveling... I also was locked in a Falling position, because it REFUSED to Let me do a Simple market order (or, any Other type of order, for that matter! ) yes, I was "Trapped," in a Sinking position I could not exit From
leanin' towards Fidelity again, but i know from past experience, that their HR Hiring Dept. is the most nonsensical on the Planet. So, not so sure about them either. eToro doesn't allow a lot of stocks to be Traded, either. tradestation was horrible & Crooked, back in the Day, not sure after they got bought out. Really not finding a 'perfect' broker
I use limit orders so I don't have bad fill experience that I'm aware of anyway. With the Schwab purchase, supposedly they are going to complete the integration this year. I'm looking forward to seeing the Schwab tools. I'm a charts guy. TDA has terrible charts. Laughably bad. Maybe intentionally bad. Like no minor Y axis options bad. Schwab supposedly has better charts.
I'm not planning to swap to another but have heard good things about Interactive. Of course you never know what the future holds. What's good today can be gone tomorrow, as was the case with Scottrade.
