ONLINE CALCULATORS AND LISTINGS
Stock, bond, mutual fund, and option listings are readily available from many sources. If you want to start trading, you can do it over the phone with a broker or online directly. You can get advice or you can be totally self-directed. There is a huge range of commissions (costs) for executing trades. Do your homework here.

Vanguard (http://www. vanguard. com/us/FundsS tocksOverview? gh_sec=n? WT. srch=1) is a mutual fund seller with many different offerings. I’m not suggesting that this is better or worse than many other companies, but I think that this is a very educational site.
Merrill Lynch (http://www. mldirect. ml. com/) is a large financial services firm. Again, I ’ m not promoting this firm over the many others, but I think this is an informative website.
