Any good bank & brokerage custodians other than Wells Fargo

Based on the recommendation here at this forum, I set up IRA accounts at Wells Fargo. While it is good for most services, it is deficient in one very important aspect - it does not allow for the investment in leveraged funds, such as Rydex Nova. I have an investment strategy that relies on the purchase of such funds, and I can't do this with Wells Fargo, so I am looking to go elsehwhere. Of course, I could go to Rydex themselves, but I would be restricted to only investing there, and I would prefer to be able to play the market in general as well as invest in these funds.

It looks like E-Trade has a similarly good offering, and with the ability to invest in the leveraged funds.

IIRC, Schwab offers these funds, although it has been some time since I even looked. I know that a few yars ago I was able to trade RYJUX there. Generally speaking, I cannot fault them in the slightest for the service they have offered me over the years.
