What to look for in a broker:
- Ease of use: it has to be user friendly, albeit take the time to learn its relevant features
- Ensure your trades are routed directly or through routing partners, to the market, to avoid trade desk interception
- Commissions: must be acceptable
- Accessible: staff should be available when you need them and be able to communicate effectively
