What Brokerage/Application do you use for Stocks?

Know there's likely been a thread about this already, however curious to hear what brokerage's and applications people are using for trading Stocks/Crypto.


Personally, have my stocks split up across a couple of different brokerages and one application for Crypto, so open to ideas on consolidating all of that as well.

Betterment, and I love me some ETFs. I have neither the patience nor the risk appetite, to trade on individuals.

I've heard of Betterment, how is the interface with them? I try to do the long term ETFs too, but TD's interface is horrible compared to other brokers.ย

It's so smooth! I have my IRA and personal investing done through them. Can't recommend their app enough.

I've heard good things about Schwab and that's likely the platform I'm going to consolidate everything into someday soon.

All depends on what you're doing and what the goals are. If you daytrade and want something "free" TD Ameritrade's ThinkorSwim platform is good enough. The basic website sucks though, so you need to use Thinkorswim.

TC2000 and TradingView are great for free/low-cost charts.ย 

If you swing trade or hold overnight then it comes down to broker fees since the application/platform doesn't really matter.

Crypto- Is normally separate. Binance is one but many others.

If you invest long term... Fidelity, Schwab (which merged with TD Ameritrade) are great. Maybe you want to be hands off then you need to talk about robo-advisors like Betterment.

I'm a bit more hands off so Betterment may be an option for me here soon, also have some money in TD and use Stash currently as well. Thanks for the info on all this.

Right now I use WeBull. Switched overย  to them from Robinhood after theย  Gamestop event. Takes a while to get the funds secured in their system but I havent had any issues.

My "fuck around" money is in TD right now.ย 
The website is ass, but ThinkorSwim app is pretty good.

Need to transfer my roth and 401k from previous roles and might open a Fidelity account for one of those to have a bit more control. Then vanguard a Roth IRA.

I'm probably one of the rare people who's never used Robinhood before!

Sorry for the missed context, anyone using Robinhood should get out unless they use it for crypto, which even then Iโ€™d change to coin baseย

I have no idea what I'm doing so I just stick with my original TD account. It hasn't let me down so far - but know I could be doing a lot better if I had more knowledge. Too busy with my job to have the time to dive deeper.ย 

FWIW my industry requires constant learning - laws are changing *literally* every day and I need to know them all.ย

WeBull, but I'd love to move away from it. Looks like Robinhood is kind of the move, but I've heard mixed things about it
