It's kinda good to know that this year is almost over, because financialy in this state it's pretty much sucked. But there are a few glimmers of hope trickling through. A couple of the big three are actually reinstating things like raises, yeah not something we've seen here for a while. They are also bringing back the investing options and matching programs, some extra money you can use to invest in your future. But if you’re like me you don’t know a whole lot about online trading and need some resources to fall back on.
Firstrade offers low cost and high standards and was named in 2005 as the Best Deal in online stock trading. Their website is user friendly and offers investment guide information , financial calculators, free dividend reinvestment and low commission fees.
If you want to get your feet wet and start investing you’d be pretty hard pressed to find another online broker that can offer an many options and products as this company while still charging low commissions.
