Top 3 Popular Online Stock Brokers

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A stereotypical stock broker is a Wall Street trader wearing a costume and tie that spends their days shouting orders to buy or sell securities. This is a picture from the past; these years more traders are switching to work online from platforms that let them buy and sell stocks by a couple of mouse clicks. The broker’s task is to act as a medium between buyers and sellers in trades with financial assets. For their services, brokers charge a commission fee per trade, agreed on in advance. The main reason why people address stock brokers to invest in stocks traded in the exchange is the fact that stock brokers have legal methods of making your operations with shares easier and faster. They can do all the job for you — from trade execution to distributing dividends or even deposit processing when you withdraw your money.


The Main Things to Look at When Choosing a Stock Broker

  • Starting Deposit

Nowadays, most brokers do not require a certain sum as a minimal starting deposit, which is comfortable for beginners and those on budget. However, for certain types of accounts, you will need to deposit a minimum of 500 to 10,000 USD.

  • Commission Fee

First and foremost, make sure you are aware of all the commission fees charged by your broker. Some companies might charge no fees for carrying out trades but this does not mean that you will have everything for free.

  • Access to Analytical Instruments

Access to instruments for stock analysis is an important criterion for assessment of the quality of provided services. In many cases, the efficacy of your trading depends exactly on the abundance of tech analysis instruments and indicators.

  • Technical Support

A Client Support service that works 24 hours a day is a vital criterion for choosing your perfect broker. If you neglect this, you might face annoying surprises exactly when you need help.
