How We Rank & Compare

Our Methodology

 

 

 

 

Learn here about how we rank and compare our listed online brokers.

The thing we love at BrokerTrending is helping you to pick the perfect online broker or trading platform by providing you with a free comparison tool.

What Brokers can be included on BrokerTrending

  • We only list regulated online brokers, so regulation is necessary to protect traders from shady or fraud trading platforms.
  • Our staff do a preliminary review to reach a decision on each broker candidate, including a test of their web and mobile platforms and firm trust.
  • We have affiliate agreements with the most brokers, however, review scores are independent of financial compensation from those brokers.
