So you are looking for a recommendation for an individual broker? What type of investor are you? Lots of good brokers, lots of good brokerages. But the right fit really requires that both you and the broker have a similar outlook for it to be a good fit.

For example: Some brokers specialize in wealth creation through long term investments. These brokers can work wonders long term but would not be a good fit for someone looking to do some speculating or playing around with options and such.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

^^^What he said. Brokers are like shoes, you have to find the one that fits your investment strategy and risk tolerance.

I can recommend two but I'd need more insight on your goals and needs.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

Might be reading this wrong, but if you known what you want to do, why would you not just sign up with Scottrade and do it yourself?

Sign up with online discount brokers and do what you want.

Stock brokers are just salesmen working on commission. If they were good at picking stocks, they would make millions for themselves instead of playing with your money.

No one will care about your money as much as you do. Well, ok, maybe your kids will...

I suggest downloading and reading the following two free e-books, and then you can make your own investing decisions:
All About Asset Allocation
The Four Pillars of Investing

Oh, and this advice is worth exactly what you paid for it.

http://www.TankVest.com/ - Attach MOLLE gear to your KLR, KTM, or VStrom gas tank

Each player must accept the cards life deals him or her, but once they are in hand, he alone must decide how to play the cards in order to win the game.

Very short, but very important. Standard read for any finance major.

A good little look inside the machine.
