>>>I initially looked at the IRA Center at the Fool and Ameritrade seemed the best option from the listed discount brokers. I asked a question on another board and I was introduced to Scottrade for the first time, and then sent to this board. While browsing through this board, I see Scottrade mentioned frequently, but not Ameritrade. I went to the Scottrade site and it appears to be a better deal than Ameritrade. At this point, I want to go with Scottrade. Any thoughts?<<<

Be aware that the brokers listed on the MF Broker Comparison Table pay for the privilege of being listed there. Hey, it's the American way. That Scottrade chose not to spend their advertising dollars in that way should be considered neither a positive nor negative in judging the brokerage.
