Equities.com in partnership with Tradier Brokerage Inc. is pleased today to announce the availability of commission free & unlimited equity trading from its platform to retail investors and its growing base of 300,000 users per month. Over the last few years the market has seen firms offer limited commission or free stock trading while still charging $9-$19 per month for other “must have” features or requiring large minimum account balances. Equities’ platform will allow its users to trade unlimited stock shares for zero commissions but with no premium package to purchase. There are no limits as to the number of shares traded or the number of trades, and no account minimums. Equities.com also offers a wide variety of editorial content and free real-time market data that allows users to easily research companies trade directly from its platform.
"At Equities.com we believe in total transparency, great content and value for millennials, active investors and everybody in between. Equities has been serving clients with great content, coverage and research for over two decades and now with enabling unlimited free trading through Tradier Brokerage, we are able to create a one-stop shop for everything the client is looking for,” said Michael MacDonald, CEO of Equities.com. "We are an experienced company. We are excited to offer a more transparent alternate to the market combined with quality content. The key is that we are just getting started and expecting to release more features including a native mobile app over the next few months.”
More advanced users can also trade unlimited options from within the Equities.com platform for a fixed $89.95/month. There is no limit on number of trades or number of contracts. All OCC and any regulatory fees will be passed on to the customer similar to other firms.
"Innovative companies like Equities.com through their integration with Tradier Brokerage are able to put powerful tools into the hands of the investors that do not exist before. I am happy to see that firms like Equities.com are able to create better products in the market than the legacy limited mobile apps," said Dan Raju, CEO of Tradier. "We are excited that innovators from all across the globe use using the Tradier API to innovate."
