You're right.The Fool wants you to get started with a discount broker because they get a finder's fee if you sign up with one of the discount brokers they recommend.And also because the point of the Fool is to teach you how to pick your own stocks.The Fool's line has been "If you're just starting and don't know anything, you can't go wrong with the S&P500. But eventually you'll want to be picking your own stocks so you can beat the market." I don't think this advice is totally solid.
