No one has mentioned Scottrade. I have had a Roth account with them for about ten years now and have never even heard of this thing called "safekeeping fees" until today. Another benefit of Scottrade is that (I believe) all it takes to open an account is $500.

I agree with the thought that as an investor you want to keep any fees to an absolute minimum. Other discount brokers may be even better for your purposes if they offer ETFs with no commission and no "safekeeping fees."
