Merrill Edge Reviews

Casual traders and Bank of America customers will surely love it Merrill Edge combines high-quality customer service with low commissions and fees — including a limited number of commission-free trades to customers who meet minimum balance requirements. Customers of parent company Bank of America will love the seamless, thoughtful integration, with a single login to access both investment and bank accounts. The company is best for casual traders, though its pricing on penny stocks is very favorable. 2016-12-15

Rewarding package for being a client Merrill Edge offers customers fantastic customer service and a well-rounded package worth being a client for, especially Bank of America customers under the Preferred Rewards program.
