Your choice of investments


When you buy a stock, you’re buying a small share in a company. Choose from multiple order types to place a trade when you feel the time is right, just $6.95 per online trade (low-priced securities may be extra; see our pricing and rates). And if you don’t have enough cash available for investing to cover the entire order, our Express Funding will let you place a buy order without making you post a deposit to your account first (there are costs and limits, so learn more).

Find your next stock pick using our free, easy-to-use research tools.

Exchange-traded funds (ETFs)

ETFs can be a convenient way to increase your diversification, follow sectors and so on. Each ETF includes a portfolio of investments, and usually has low management fees. You can also trade an ETF like a stock even though it’s a fund, still just $6.95 per online trade. The price you pay for an ETF will always be lower than the cost of buying its individual holdings. If you’re looking for fixed income, we also offer bond ETFs.

Find ETFs that fit your investing strategy by visiting our ETF Center.

Mutual funds

Take your pick of 100% no-load mutual funds from a variety of fund families such as Vanguard, Fidelity and more. There are no transaction fees on many funds and low transaction fees (just $19.95 per trade) on others (see our pricing and rates). You can also view each fund’s Morningstar® analysis to see its rating, risk, performance and more—as you search.

Find mutual funds that match criteria you specify with our fund screener.


Options can help you hedge against risk, generate income and make the most out of market moves. But they also carry risks and aren’t for all investors. If you know your way around options, you can trade calls and puts, and write covered calls for only $6.95 (plus $0.75 per contract). To learn more, visit our options page.

Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Before investing in options, please read the Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options.
