On-line Stock Brokerage Services

The list of on-line stock brokerage services grew very rapidly with the advent of electronic stock trading facilitated by the internet. However, over the past several years many of the once high flying players fell victim to competition, mismanagement, and consolidation in the stock trading market. What follows is a listing of some of the more prominent stock brokerage services and day trading shops currently available. Prices for trading will vary considerably. It is best to do your homework. Overall, there has been considerable downward price pressure since Charles Schwabb first pioneered the concept of discount stock trading. However, more recently trading prices seem to have stabalized at a level substantially discounted to what the full service brokerage firms charged once upon a time. We believe that a modest downward trend will continue - presenting favorable trading and stock investment opportunities for small investors. It pays to shop around before selecting a stock brokerage firm. Some firms are even offering up front incentives and bonuses for new customers.
