CHARLES SCHWAB

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?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best online stock brokers available today. We hope this information helps you choose your next online stock broker!
