Arrow Direct-Control Investing from 401/403/IRA?

I'd like to pull my accounts from multiple employer-sponsored plans to a single IRA where I can buy/sell myself (like my play account at etrade).

Any recommendations on online houses?

Why not just stay at etrade since you are already familiar with the platform? I generally recommend Fidelity for newbies because of their top notch customer service and educational materials. Every week they have some free webinars over various investing topics and sprinkled among them are their views on the current market and outlook. They range from anything between "What's an ETF?" to "Using technical analysis in your Options Trade", the latter I watched today and they screen shared how they'd mark up a chart using actual at the moment prices.

For experienced folk I guess it boils down to how good their trading UI is and how good their order execution are as well as transaction costs. Fidelity requires a minimum amount of trades to use their dedicated application for free and since I don't trade much am pretty much stuck with their web UI. Think or Swim had a pretty cool UI you can get from the get go though I think they merged with someone.

Do please come back and say which one you picked and why. I don't plan on leaving Fidelity but am curious to hear about the current state of the other brokers!

I use Charles Schwab for brokerage and bank.

Bank: NO FEES. NO RIDICULOUS CHARGES. REIMBURSED ATM's. Free bill pay, free checks, free debit card with no charges for international transactions. INTEREST IS PAID.

Brokerage is account is just as free. I use Schwab funds and ETF's. Stocks are $4.95. I have a Roth, IRA, and SEP with them.

All phone reps are here in the US and customer service is outstanding.
