If you are small, and I mean small, investor like I am, run, run fast and run far. They have a fee for EVERTHING!!!!! I just wanted to put a few hundred (500) in the account and learn as I invested. Recently retired and figured this might be a way to learn online investing without attending all those “sure thing” investing seminars which I find unsuitable.
Now every time I called I was treated well and the folks were knowledgeable and very nice. But again if you want to do something, it’s 5 dollars here, 10 dollars there plus the trade costs on a per trade basis.Today I had had enough so called to cancel my account and guess what, another 10 buckaroos to cut an electronic check that no one will ever touch.
My advice to the small, and I mean small trader like myself . buy investing for dummies and do your research on all the online traders before you jump. Yes I know, shame on me for not doing that, but with the advertisements they do, I was taken in by the shiny and not the substance.Anyway, just my opinion best of luck
