“This is not rocket science – you can do this stuff.” – Phil Town

Over the last 30 years, the buying and selling of stock has changed drastically, and financial literacy has spread.

In this week’s episode of InvestED, Phil and Danielle discuss some of the changes that have taken place in the financial world due to the internet and the access to company information that is available because of it.

The discussion takes a turn when Danielle mentions recent news regarding TD Ameritrade and Charles Schwab.

Last week, Schwab announced plans to buy TD Ameritrade, merging the two companies. If Schwab does in fact buy TD Ameritrade and close the deal, it will own more than half of the brokerage assets in the US.

What’s going to happen in the future of the brokerage world as consumers? As investors?
