Top 10 online stock brokerage firms in U.S.


For many investors the task of hitting an investment target feels more like art rather than science. Many average or beginner investors understand that they have invest for their future, and they likely have one or multiple investment accounts. Despite this good effort, some lingering questions often remain:

- What really is the target goal and how do you know you’re going to actually hit it?

- How do you know that fees are not going to kill your long term investment strategy?

- How do you ensure you’re properly diversified and what kind of risk can you tolerate?

Fortunately there are now investment services that have sprung up recently to help provide some answers to these nagging question and a popular ones are listed in this article.

Above we present to our readers the list of our 2016 top 10 highest rated online stock brokerage companies in U.S. The list contains the brokerage firms ratings, links to companies' websites, pricing on stocks, exchange traded funds, mutual funds and options trades, investment products offered by the firms as well as the link to complete brokerage accounts reviews.

All firms above offer their customers online investing in stock market, NYSE, NASDAQ, and S&P companies. Clients could either buy individual stocks or, to lower their risk exposure, they can purchase exchange traded funds as well as various mutual funds (index, target retirement, stocks, international and others).

A great idea that too many investors easily overlook is to practice trading a particular asset class before committing real money. Unfortunately, not many brokers offer this service, which is often called paper trading. TD Ameritrade and Optionshouse are two brokerage firms that do offer practice accounts for their customers.

Each company has its strengths and weaknesses, and not every firm is right for a particular client. For this reason, before opening an account it is important to do some research on a company that spiked your interest to see if it is really right for you.

Some of these top 10 stock brokerage firms offer opening an account with $0 minimum deposit: you should take this opportunity to open a few brokerage accounts, and see which one you like more.

These top ten online stock brokers often offer new customers sign up incentives for opening a new account: it could be a reimbursing of an ACAT fee, commission-free trading for a period of time, cash bonus or a merchandise gift card. You should definitely check out promotional offers we have listed on the website to get as much value out of opening a brokerage account as possible.
