Online Brokerage Firm Reviews
We are also consistently reviewing these firms to make sure that you're able to find the best information on these companies. It takes us a lot of time to go through and look at every aspect of their trading platforms, so we're consistently updating this list.
If there is a firm that you'd like to see reviewed sooner, rather than later, please contact us and let us know. We'll check it out and give our unbiased opinion about them.
Acorns Investing Review - Acorns is a mobile app that allows you to invest your spare change. It charges no account minimums, but the high annual fee as a percentage of small investments is a drawback.
Charles Schwab Review - Charles Schwab is a classic company that has reinvented itself for the needs of new investors. It has low fees, but it does ask for higher account minimums to get started.
ETrade Review - ETrade used to be the leader in low cost investing. However, they are now one of the higher priced online brokerage firms, which makes them middle of the pack when it comes to investing.
Fidelity Investments Review - Fidelity is the leader in online brokerages. They offer a full service brokerage, both online and in person. They have one of the largest ranges of investments, services, and account types available. They are also very low cost, with many free options. As such, we rank them as our top online investment broker.
Kapitall Review - Kapitall seeks to gamify the investing experience by creating an easy to use interface with great tools. However, their limited investment options and account types severely limit the platform.
Loyal3 Review - Loyal3 offers free trades on a selected number of stocks. The price of $0 is awesome, but the limitations when it comes to the stocks you can buy, as well as the types of accounts you can open, force us to give them 3/5 stars.
OptionsHouse Review - OptionsHouse is a discount brokerage that focuses on frequent traders and options traders. As a result, they offer low fees and run promotions on trading all the time.
Robinhood Review - Robinhood is a really interesting company. They offer $0 commissions, but you have to trade with their app, which is available on iOS and Android. Because of the limitations of the app (including dividend reinvestment and more), we gave them 3/5 stars.
Scottrade Review - Scottrade offers flat $7 stock trades and has a great suite of tools that we love. In fact, we use it to screen our stocks currently. The only thing holding it back from 5 stars is how difficult it is to withdraw money from your account.
TD Ameritrade Review - TD Ameritrade is one of the leading online discount brokerage firms. Specializing in IRAs, they offer great service at reasonable prices. Their commissions are slightly higher, which puts them at their only disadvantage.
TradeKing Review - TradeKing offers low prices trades with good tools, and that's a huge perk. They are one of the lowest priced companies we've looked at. However, the ease of use wasn't there, and it just didn't feel top-notch. We gave them a 3 out of 5 stars.
