Stock & Bond Brokers Success

In order to buy stocks, you need the assistance of a stockbroker since you cannot usually just call up a company and ask to buy their stock on your own. For inexperienced investors, there are two basic categories of brokers to choose from: a full-service broker or an online/discount broker.

Full-service brokers are what most people visualize when they think about investing—well-dressed, friendly business people sitting in an office chatting with clients. These are the traditional stockbrokers who will take the time to get to know you personally and financially. They will look at factors such as marital status, lifestyle, personality, risk tolerance, age (time horizon), income, assets, debts, and more. By getting to know as much about you as they can, these full-service brokers can then help you develop a long-term financial plan.

Discount brokers, on the other hand, do not provide any investment advice and are basically just order takers. They are much less expensive than full-service brokers since there is typically no office to visit and no certified investment advisors to help you. Cost is usually based on a per-transaction basis and you can typically open an account over the internet with little or no money. Once you have an account with an online broker, you can usually just log on to its website and into your account and be able to buy and sell stocks instantly.

The bottom line is that your choice of broker should be based on your individual needs. Full-service brokers are great for those who are willing to pay a premium for someone else to look after their finances. Online/discount brokers, on the other hand, are great for people with little start-up money and who would like to take on the risks and rewards of investing upon themselves, without any professional assistance.

“FFR is the reason that I had the confidence to  jump in to investment and trading again, after suffering from the other poor products out there, was the verification process that FFR Trading uses to vet the traders.”

“In the 4 months that I have been with FFR Trading my account has grown substantially and I still decide personally that I must deal with the emotional side of the trading as I get confirmations and statements daily.”

Then I got a call from FFR Trading and they could tell I had a lot of skeptism from past experiences , but they did’t give up. I am so glad they didn’t. In less than a month I already have a 15% return on my initial investment.”
