Which discount brokers have the best deal for long term investors? Consider commissiion rates and
management or custodial fees in your answer.

a True long-term investor isn't doing enough trades that it makes sense to obsess over fees.... the Deep Discounters NEED you to be a trader.

*i* started with Schwab because at That time, they were the only game in town.

i've stayed because: there's a local branch if i ever need one. their site has been very reliable (they have fixed *every* bug i've reported!). they nearly always answer the phone by the 2d ring. they've been willing to sit and patiently explain arcana like metals, options, Roths & foreign investing. and i like their TV ads (:
