Sizing Up the Discount Brokers
When the stock market first exploded, the discount stock brokers began to offer their services in order to get a share of the enormous quantity of shares being traded daily. At first these discounters offered the bare minimum of service, but today there are over one hundred independent firms and about three thousand offices associated with banks which offer a whole supermarket of financial services. But until one can define their investment goals and needs, it is difficult to decide if a discounter will offer all the services you need. Discounters can not offer all the services of a regular broker, so the investor who wants advice, wants to be in on new issues, would be better off with a full service broker. There are two types of discount brokers - the value brokers and the share broker - and there many different services discount brokers and the share broker can perform. A table comparing nine discount brokers with a typical full service broker can help investors find what they need.
