If an individual used to no-advice deep discount brokers must choose only between Fidelity, Merrill Lynch, and Charles Schwab for trading an aggresive portfolio, what experiences/praises/horror stories do Wilmotters have to share?Compared to Interactive Brokers, FOLIOfn, and OANDA, these shops seem to charge immensely higher fees and commisions and provide less of the services important to a quantitative investor. Do one of these offer no-fee+no-load funds with analytics, money management service, or other "nice" services to justify their enormous cost (all of which seem to be in the "highest of high" category)? Which one of these might be the best for a quant who likes international stocks, options, futures, and FI products at the lowest cost?(New thread only because the "off topic" one didn't cover these three in particular).
