Please do not skip any of this information, even if you think you know all about stock brokers and penny stock brokers.  


Unbelievable as it may sound, many stock traders are stuck with stock brokers who do not quite meet their needs, and many do not even know it.  Had they received, and listened to, the proper guidance first, they would: 

  • not be stuck with the wrong broker
  • have a fulfilling and profitable experience trading penny stocks with the correct broker for them.
  • will not have to go through the difficulty, emotional trauma, time and expense of changing brokers.

This lack of proper planning and research for locating the best broker for them is similar to the same mistakes stock traders make when trading penny stocks, which is...

They do not fully study a stock they invest in against the essential fields of research to capture consistent low risk successful trades as this site is revealing to you.  

So, for your own sake, please take the 30 minutes or so of time necessary to read this information carefully and you willl:

  • not miss out on making hugely successful trades

  • save yourself from months or years of anger and grief.

Full Service Brokers

Full Service Brokers are online, but many clients of full service brokers will call them for advice, or even visit them at their office. 

Such brokers provide the most advice, guidance, teaching, expertise, and help with stock trades.  

Such brokers are expensive to trade with, so are well suited for long-term traders with a large amount to invest.  

Novice Traders

Novice traders will benefit from the full-service brokers in extra help and guidance. Even so, if you are a novice, do not depend on your broker to make trading decisions for you.  


Broker stock advice is dismal and will slowly drain your principal or stop you from earning the big money that professional independent traders make.  This is the experience I had using full service brokers, and that is the general trend for other traders as well.

In addition, full-service brokers are generally not penny stock friendly.  They will not be of help for trading penny stocks. 

More than ever, full-service brokers are offering there services in an online trading format, but will help their clients by phone usually for an extra fee on top of commissions.

Full service brokers charge the most money for trades and for all other services - services that are increasingly offered by discount brokers for free or a very small fee.  

To stay competitive, a number of full service brokers have dramatically lowered their fees, and offer more online resources.

Even so, such brokers best serve the long-term investor with big pockets.

In summary

My advice to those studying this site for penny stock trading... stay away from full-service brokers.  

You have now completed this first of six short pages dedicated to choosing the right penny stock broker for you.
