Day Trade SPY : Trading Brokers
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
- Routing: ensure your trades are routed directly to the market with no chance of trade desk interception
- Commissions: must be acceptable
- Accessible: staff should be available when you need them and be able to communicate effectively
