Most brokers do a very good job and many discount brokers no longer charge commissions for stock trades.

A few brokers offer special services that might be a factor. Some have more bonds to choose from. Some may offer access to IPOs. etc.

I use Fidelity and do almost everything on line. But they do have local offices. So if some question comes up that needs explanation, they are available. I think that is a plus. Others like Charles Schwab and TD Ameritrade also have local offices in addition to their online site.

Most brokers offer free online research these days. Some have better websites than others.

Choose the one with the best services you plan to use.
