  • The mobile app provides clean access to investing as well as education and market news.

thumb_down_off_alt Cons

  • The platform and tools, including the app, are very basic.
  • Education is limited in scope and delivery.
  • Navigation, both on the website and mobile, is not as clean and clear as it should be. Serious investors and traders will find a better match at stand-alone brokers like TD Ameritrade, E*TRADE and Fidelity.
