Was thinking about opening a Vanguard acct for a while, but now I see Etrade added some Vanguard ETFs to its commission-free ETF schedule. Depending which symbols those are, it might make more sense (and cents... lawl) to lean toward Etrade. Vanguard confirmed it is still refusing the pop brokerage industry's new "pay to play" model (i.e. where issuers pay to have their ETFs traded commission-free by a given brokerage house).

Castle Age: pierce general alliance revisited again One of my treasure chest pulls from the Meteorite bonus pool was a second copy of general Ender. So I got thinking about rearranging my general alliances and maybe leveling up Ender, but then I half-remembered I had crunched numbers to figure out ultimate pierce alliances before. The conclusion was Annika (or Guinevere) primary, Gale secondary and aim for Kitsune tertiary if I ever get her. I kinda wish I had thought about this before I sank 60-75 each o... (...more)
