If your intention is to just stick your money into a handful of index funds or etf's, then the Vanguard account is probably the way to go.
If you are going to actually trade the account, I'd go with a Merrill Edge account. The trades are only $6.95(for stks), customer service is great, and you ge...

Interesting article one of my internals sent to me this morning. The gist is that Yellen's Fed is attempting to instigate an institutional run out of the bond market(by threatening to institute gate exit fees) in the hopes that the result will be an inflow into equities.

Just don't want one that will die the day after the warranty runs out. Prefer 9" or larger screen. Other than that, I will only use it for surfing the web,...
