There’s an impressive campaign going on now at optionsXpress whereby you can get a $100 signup bonus by simply opening a new account with a minimum of $500 by December 31, and make a minimum of 3 trades over the course of the following 12 months.
How’s a 20% ROI over a month or so sound?
- Barron’s has named them Best online Broker 4 years in a Row!
- SmartMoney rated highest stars for trading
- Forbes Favorite Best of the Web
- and more…
- Pricing: Depending on your trade volume, can get stock trades for $9.95 and options for $12.95 per trade
- The real draw is the tools for investors that go beyond buy and hold stock trades: Chains, The Dragon, Virtual Trade, Flex Charts, Spreads Book and more (see site for more details)
