Pros

It is easy to see the progress of your holdings - historical view for one stock and collective info, your gains and losses etc.

Cons

Setting up the buy option is tricky. A newbie could struggle and it takes time to settle in only if you are using it almost every other day.

Pros

Very friendly user interface, lots of tools for making decisions, overall comprehensive service.

Cons

Robinhood has shown that broker fees are unnecessary, and so the cost of trading is a huge barrier, comparatively.

Pros

E-Trade has an easy interface - trusted by industry - the App makes it very easy to access.

Cons

Selling stocks and transferring the money needs to be easier to get to - I don't use it often but it always takes some time to find these actions. Would be nice if there was a "trending stock or new stock" blog to follow.

Pros

The website provides lots of features. Customer support has always been great as well.

Cons

The website is definitely a bit busy. There is so much content on most pages that it is sometimes difficult to hone in on what you want to do on a given page.

Pros

There are a plethora of research options. It is easy to maintain your account, and has external apps.

Pros

I like the fact that it updates often and I can pull it up on my phone easily. I also like the ease of access to navigate around the website.

Cons

The fee is kind of high to purchase stocks, which can cut into the amount of stock you're able to purchase.

Pros

Easy to do research, and the way you can customize the profile page is nice.

Cons

Takes too long to transfer money from my bank: sometimes itโ€™s a day, whereas sometimes it takes four to five days.

Pros

The trade commissions arenโ€™t the lowest among discount brokerage firms. But it offers value to both beginner investors and frequent traders with a library of educational resources, and an easy-to-navigate trading platform.

Cons

You need a minimum of $500 to open an account on E*TRADE, so lower fees and also reduced amount of direct deposit to open the account would make the offer more enticing.
