The previous is only the briefest of quote comparisons between E*Trade and TradeMonster. But if I had to say 'Yea' or 'Nay' right this minute, I'd say to throw some of your bond business their way, especially if you aren't grandfathered at ET into the better version of their bond platform.

I hammered on TradeMonster as I hard as I could and found no problems. Their customer service is good. An account takes just 3 minutes to set up. Their trading platform is intuitive. Their quote servers are fast. Everything about them says 'PROFESSIONAL'. Obviously, your own experience might be different. But I really believe even a newbie wouldn't be overwhelmed by what he/she encountered.

John, once again. "Thanks" for calling the community's attention to this broker.
