As more people get involved in online trading, the level of competition gets stiffer. In fact, because there are so many sites that offer online trading solutions, companies are starting to post a lot of advertisements to lure more investors. There are banners that tell of their brokers’ wonderful achievements, claims of making other investors’ stocks earn double in the first three months and so on. Surprisingly, they still do not attract as much customers as expected.
To get their share of clients, some brokerages offer free online trading for a specific period (about a month) if you subscribe to their service. So if you are interested in saving up on broker’s fees, you might want to try these free services out especially if you are just starting out and is merely keen on trading a few stocks.
