It’s official: has just released its 2016 Online Broker Review, and TradeKing has once again made a stellar showing. We won a four-star ranking for the second consecutive year and ranked Best in Class for Commissions & Fees and Offering of Investments. We also scored an outstanding four stars in the categories of Platforms & Tools, Research, and Customer Service.

In its six years of existence, has rapidly risen in prominence as a leading online brokerage ranking for independent investors everywhere. They really kick the tires, too: in 2016 they assessed 13 brokers on 295 variables across 10 core areas: Commissions & Fees, Offering of Investments, Platform & Tools, Research, Customer Service, Mobile Trading, Ease of Use, Education, Order Execution and Banking. praised our well-rounded breadth of offerings, including the  addition of the powerful Desktop Pro trading platform (via our acquisition of MB Trading), significant enhancements to TradeKing LIVE, our quality mobile trading and new online advisory offering, TradeKing Advisors. Here’s the pull-quote from our review that had us cheering: “These, combined with TradeKing’s core offerings, have placed TradeKing in a position to compete for the title of ultimate value broker,” writes Blain Reinkensmeyer, Head of Broker Research at Bullseye! This perfectly describes our goal.

We value surveys like these for multiple reasons. For our clients, they offer an invaluable service to active investors evaluating the brokerage best suited to their needs. For TradeKing, they provide a useful benchmark on how well we’re achieving our goals. In 2015 we aimed to broaden our offering to a more complete range of investment products, while raising the bar on our mobile-first trading experience, TradeKing LIVE – and we’ve successfully done both. In 2016 we plan to take TradeKing LIVE and our responsive site up several notches while continuing to innovate our service, community and education forward. Get ready for a fantastic year – already off to a strong start!

Be Good,
Don Montanaro

CEO, TradeKing Group
