Since the increase in Internet stock and investment trading, online stockbrokers and traders have become a source for people looking for quick execution and low commission charges.
Investment and stock firms have put major money and effort into gaining an online share of the market. For investors and traders, it gives them the ability to trade more actively and buy and sell for less.
Most of these firms are not there to give personal advice or explain the risks associated with certain investments. If an investor is seeking more service and willing to maybe pay a little more commission, then working with a full service brokerage firm might make more sense.
Some Online brokerage firms will provide trading platforms and software, along with real time quotes and fast execution.
