In my opinion, the casual trader should take a look at what Merill Edge has to offer. The primary draw of Merill Edge’s trading platform is its customizability rather than […]

Robinhood Broker Review

Robinhood is a unique brokerage platform that purports to be totally free and exists only on mobile devices.
