TradeZero is a stock and ETF broker established in the Bahamas in 2015. Though the global entity is regulated offshore, the US subsidiary is overseen by FINRA with SIPC registration. The powerful proprietary trading software makes it a popular choice for active day traders.
E-trade is a one-stop shop that provides both investment and trading opportunities to clients through four proprietary platforms and apps. The firm has decades of experience and is authorized by the SEC. Investors can benefit from ready-made portfolios or open a do-it-yourself account to choose from stocks, funds, ETFs, futures and bonds; traders can access margin trading on stocks, options and futures.
