I am a big fan of buyandhold.com! There is no service like it. I sincerely believe that the $9.99 should be raised to at least $20 - $25 per month. Although this would add cost for us, it would ensure (hopefully!) long-term viability for buyandhold.

Here is a link to sharebuilder to learn about their services:

In my opinion, sharebuilder is a joke. Once a week buying and selling? In year 2001? Give me a break.


I look forward to buyandhold adjusting their fees, if necessary, and the 210,000 accounts to continue to grow and prosper. I am embarrassed to read some of the doom and gloom posters (ala CowDad) on this thread. Buyandhold is a new and growing business. Our money is insured. No other company has such a great service. Goldman Sacks is one of the backers of buyandhold.

I definately won't go to sharebuilder and their ridiculous fees ($15.95 for a sell transaction) that occurs once a week.

We get what we pay for. Obviously the numbers have chosen buyandhold. Now hopefully the financing can be worked out for buyandhold's future.
