Placetrade Reviews

by Jean Marie Sardlis, 5/18/2017

Pros: Free consult with CEO on retirement

Cons: Oh my gosh none... I felt like I was finally being understood.

I got an 60 minute consultation with the CEO for my birthday as a gift from my best friend. We worked on My retirement options and made a new plan for me to work with monthly! Very happy with the time spent and think I may be able to retire at 64 by sticking to our plan. What a relief.

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.

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."
