Currently I’m not making active trades, but someday I hope to again. If I was in the market for a new broker I’d probably go with Zecco. I know the brand better and in my experience the online community is more familiar with it is well, which makes it easier to discuss tactics.

I haven’t used TradeKing or Zecco, but if I were to open an account, I would have to go with TradeKing. At least until Zecco becomes more reliable and offers better investing tools. My number one priority for a discount brokerage is cost. Now that Zecco is no longer offering free trades, I have to rely on my number two priority, which is investing tools. I will have to re-evaluate once I have enough money to start a play account.

I absolutely love Zecco and use it for all of my trades over the past year and a half. Just if the market would turn around now…

Zecco is young and shows it. How do you take a USP then axe it because you are on the verge on blowing all your capital and going bankrupt? Tradeking is straight forward with its promises, and has made any changes except positive ones since they launched. They’ve always had a $150 cashback bonus, but many investors were unaware because the information is hidden in their website. Unless you already have hundreds of thousands of dollars to invest, I would go with Tradeking to save time, money, and your retirement dream

I have a Zecco account and have had no problems with it. It’s worked pretty well for me and I’ve saved a lot of bucks on my trades over the last few months. If I had been using some other broker, it would have cost me a fortune for sure. Tradeking doesn’t have the free trades freebie and if they did, I may open an account with them. I’m going for the savings here.
