Recently many people have run from the stock market licking their wounds and panicked by the size of their retirement plan. But at the same time, many others are cashing in on some great opportunities. For those looking to buy and sell stocks, without significant expense, online stock brokers can be the ultimate answer.

Open Your Stock Trading Account With TD Ameritrade! Besides significant cost savings, another great advantage to executing your own transactions is that you can avoid the time and energy necessary to deal with "professional" stock brokers. Many of these individuals try to convince you to buy or sell stocks, because they earn a commission every time you make a transaction. With online stock brokers, you never have to talk to any salesmen.

There are many online stock brokers to choose from. However, before buying your piece of Microsoft or IBM you should consider a number of key factors. Some of these include:

  • Fees. Does the online stock broker charge a flat fee or a percentage of the total amount purchased? What's it going to cost to sell the shares when the time comes?
  • Information. Getting quick and informative stock information is imperative for those searching for the right pick. What information does the online stock broker provide for free?
  • Customer Service. How do people feel about the service they are getting? Is the online stock broker timely and helpful when you're in need of their assistance? has reviewed and ranked the best online stock brokers available today. We hope this information helps you choose your next online stock broker!
