E*Trade Brokerage: Conclusion

While E*Trade has bulked up its advisory and business services, the company remains relatively focused on independent retail investors looking to manage their own accounts with little assistance or support. Commission rates are quite competitive, but investors should also realize that there are an array of small fees and charges tacked on for services that many other brokers offer for free.
