Ranks TradeKing LIVE the #1 Broker Innovation of 2015!

bigdog posted on 02/18/15 at 11:54 AM

We couldn’t be more pleased to announce that the 2015 brokerage survey is out, and our newly revamped TradeKing LIVE platform ranks as their #1 broker innovation of the year! We’re also pleased to get recognized as Best in Class in the Commissions & Fees category. Plus, we scored four stars for Commissions & Fees, Customer Service, Education, Research, and Overall. offers perhaps the industry’s most comprehensive survey of online brokerages:  their fees, features, service offerings, product types, and much, much more. It’s an exhaustive review and an excellent benchmark for investors and brokerage firms alike as to the state of the industry’s offerings.
Last December I blogged about our exciting new 100% responsive design site. We rebuilt our site from the ground upwards so that all account info, trading and research would render beautifully and consistently no matter which device you use to access your account. The first major phase of that rollout is nearly complete, and we’ve got even more enhancements in store for 2015.
Over the next few weeks we will be moving all current TradeKing LIVE users over to this newer version. After that transition is complete we will begin making this new site available to all TradeKing clients. New TradeKing LIVE features that were recently launched or are on the near-term horizon include a new option probability calculator, a new profit and loss options calculator, and a major upgrade to our charting functionality.
Stay tuned for more!

Be Good,
Don Montanaro

The educational segment could use a bit more in my opinion. The current content doesn't seem to get refreshed with any regularity, which is fine because it's just basics, however possibly farming out a podcast would be a great idea. Just an example, I used for about 2 weeks before I realized they didn't have a DRIP. I soon switched over to obviously.  While on their website I fell into a podcast that was hosted by a different company not affiliated with them, just supplying them with content. Again this is very dry and brutal content, but sadly some are addicted to learning the intricacies of the market. Some get more from reading, others from watching (your videos do a good job of this), and the last group gets it from listening.

Michael: your comment is well-timed. We're on the cusp of advancing a big step forward in social investing and trader education. Without giving too much away, I'm pretty confident from your points that you'll be quite pleased with what we have up our sleeves. Watch this space for more info very soon!
