Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
For the second consecutive year, Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) will publish the results of a major study revealing what the most active and engaged investors think of today’s online brokers. Last year’s study was recognized as one of the most comprehensive and objective studies ever conducted on the industry. While the 2013 study validated much of the 2012 findings, there were numerous shifts in category leaders and some new names appeared for the first time. The key findings of the new IBD Best Online Brokers Study will appear in the Monday, December 2, 2013 issue of IBD®, and will also be posted online on Friday evening, November 30 at http://www.investors.com/bestbrokers.
The study, conducted with IBD’s well-respected research partner TechnoMetrica, identifies the best online brokers overall and in 12 key categories — as rated by the brokers' own customers. Over 10,000 investors participated in the study. It also examines trends in the brokerage industry since the 2008 financial crisis, including changes in competitors, decline in the number of individual investors and increase in regulations.
To help investors capitalize on the study results, IBD has teamed up with FindTheBest to launch an Interactive Online Broker Tool to compare how brokers stacked up against their competitors in the key areas that are most important to them. This tool will also be unveiled on Friday, November 30, by 9 p.m. Eastern at http://www.investors.com/bestbrokers.
