FWIW, I've been in the process of looking for a new broker to move a rollover IRA to.
Wells Fargo has 100 trades free/yr incluing mutual funds. Bad reviews, though.

Merrill has 30/mo but not funds. But you have to have Platinum Privileges® status, and it's not crystal clear to me how to get that -- without keeping $25K in cash. Funds are $40...that's a lot.

Just2trade (I already have a small account there) is $2.50 for any kind of trade.

Etrade ((I already have an account there) is $5 for me (old BrownCo customer). Stocks or funds, although limit orders are $10.

FWIW, my Etrade customer rep said to avoid Wells ("toy trading platform"), but said Merrill was excellent.
