My go to broker

When I withdrew my money they kept 2 months of software fees totaling over $400. Very shady and there is nothing you can do to get your money back. Their borrows for shorting also stink. I have an Interactive Brokers account and they always have shorts available when speedtrader doesn't. Stay away from these guys!

Avoid SpeedTrader. SpeedTrader doesn't have anything to offer. Their platform is the worst out of all trading companies, their customer service is bad and their fees aren't competitive (they use a horrible clearing firm, COR). Over all, they have the highest fees with the worst platform and service.

Pros: ood customer service, honest company


One of the best trading companies. Good customer service, honest company, one of the better trading companies out there. I've been using them since 2003...

Used to Great Until Pricing Increase for Das Trader
Speedtrader used to be my broker until they increased the pricing on Das Trader (level 1 and 2).

Before the price increase, you would only have to trade up to $299 in commission in order to have the fees (for level 2) waived. But now you have to generate at least $499.

When they didn't set a limit, I'd be able to generate $350-400 in commission (based on $2.50 commission per trade). It's just too much of a burden.

Other than that, there's nothing wrong with the platform itself and customer service.

Leading U.S. Brokerage Review Websites About SpeedTrader

"SpeedTrader was ranked at the bottom of the list in Barron's magazine annual broker survey in 2013 and in prior years (it did not get rated in last four years). It got very poor results in almost all categories including Trading Experience and Research Amenities, Mobile, Ranges of Offerings, Portfolio Analysis and Reports, Customer Service and Education, and Costs."

Brokerage Review

"SpeedTrader offers competitive trade fees, but some of its other fees are less desirable. The DAS platform is solid in basic function but lacks some additional tools that make its competitors stand out. Mobile trading is limited to only Apple products, but with those, you can trade and keep track of your positions. While there are some good basic features to this service, it doesn't offer anything to make it stand out among its competition."
