5 Things to Think about When Choosing Online Brokerage Services


Picking the right mutual funds or the best-performing stocks is the last thing a novice investor should worry about. Instead, beginner investors should research the available brokerage services in Minneapolis before investing a single cent. Finding the right online broker can seem like a daunting task with so many online services available. Here are 5 things to consider to help you make this decision.

Weigh Your Investment Options

Novice investors generally think of investing in terms of buying stock. However, stocks are not the only investment products available. You may want to diversify your money by investing in bonds, mutual funds, or exchange-traded funds. Online brokerage services should have a menu of investment options for the variety of clients they serve.

Minimum Deposit Requirements

There are a few brokerage services that will allow you to open an investment account without initially depositing any money. However, this is not the case across the board. Most brokerage services will require you to deposit a minimum amount to get started. This amount could be as little as $50 while others may require larger sums of money that fall between $5,000 and $10,000. Paying close attention to the minimum deposit requirements will keep you from being caught off guard when selecting a brokerage service.

Costs to Trade

Online brokers are not free. However, they tend to be cheaper than working with a personal financial advisor. Stock trade fees are, generally, no higher than $10, but this is set in stone. There are some brokers that charge less and some that charge more. For serious investors who plan to trade frequently, it’s important to shop around and find a service that offers competitive trading rates so you don’t overpay and keep more money in your account at the end of the day.

One quick note before moving on to the next point. Be wary of services that charge no fees. You may not get customer service support or have access to financial tools that will help you make smart investment decisions. If the deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Research Tools

To grow your financial portfolio and create wealth, you need access to resources that will help you make smart investment decisions. The average investor doesn’t know much about the stock market and fund options. Growing your investments can be hard if you don’t have the right resources to gain industry knowledge. Make sure the brokerage service you choose has a variety of resources, online education resources, and investment tools to help you choose where to put your money.

Customer Services

The beauty of online brokerage services is that you’re able to place a trade order any time you want. If you want to log on in the middle of the night, no problem. It’s no problem, that is until you have a technical issue or a question. This is when things can get dicey. If you’re unable to connect with a real-live person to speak with to help you resolve the issue, you could lose money.

When comparing services, make sure the service you choose has multiple ways to communicate such as email, telephone, and live chat options. No one wants to have to call customer service, but it’s nice to know the option is there if you need it.

Selecting a brokerage services in Minneapolis is like anything else you choose. When it comes to investing your hard-earned money, you should investigate your options and find a broker that meets your budget and is available to help you should you need it. Take your time with the process and you’ll already be one step ahead when investing your money.
