I’m looking to finally open a brokerage account, but I don’t really know what I’m looking at/for. My knowledge is basically limited to (1) some brokerages advertise on podcasts; and (2) Morgan Stanley/Charles Schwab are things that exist; and (3) random blogs found through blindly googling. Anybody have any “explain this to me like I’m in third grade” resources or recommendations?
