  • Scottrade is a solid, independently-run, discount brokerage. It’s no longer the rock-bottom cheapest, but it still has good all-around value if you’re not making a ton of trades per month. They are focused on the self-directed investor who wants all the required tools covered well, without any hidden fees or being sold portfolio management advice.

    Pros :

    Cons :

  • Scottrade offers inexpensive prices, but you can find cheaper prices without looking too hard. That said, you have to appreciate the consistency of Scottade’s pricing.
    Overall, however, if you want a nice, dependable firm and a place where you can invest your money with as little hassle as possible, then Scottrade might be the place for you.

  • Scottrade, with its network of more than 500 branch offices and award-winning customer service, offers clients a large selection of investments and quality research to make educated investment decisions. While the broker is limited in its offering of advanced platforms and tools, Scottrade is a strong consideration for every other investor type, whether you're planning for retirement, just got your first job, or simply are a casual investor.
