Best Brokerage For IRA

Placetrade Reviews

by Kenneth Chalet, 2/13/2017

Pros: Very Personal to work with


I was very impressed when contacting Place Trade how quickly I was helped by a person not a phone robot. How refreshing that my new online trading company actually has humans working there! The fees are spot on and I am very happy to have found this firm.

No setup fees or maintenance fees for IRAs, although there is a termination fee.

Leading U.S. Brokerage Review Websites About PlaceTrade

"For a transaction of 1,000 shares, PlaceTrade will charge you $10.00. Depending on the share volume you plan to trade per transaction, it may be better to go with a flat fee brokerage. PlaceTrade structures its options trading with a base fee that is charged in conjunction with a fee per options contract. The base trade fee is $1.50, which is fairly low compared to other online brokers, and the fee charged per contract is $0.75."
