Should I ever buy CDs from a broker?
Since CD brokers outside of a bank or investment firm are largely unlicensed and unregulated by any state or federal authority, you should avoid purchasing CDs from a broker. However, if you want to purchase a CD from a broker/dealer, you should investigate the broker, and see if the company he represents has had any complaints, charges, or litigation.
