Does anybody know anything about Trade King?



April 15, 2008 – Comments (8)

I'm starting an account, and the pricing looks really good. I don't want to have my money tied up in a substandard broker right now if it's not very good, though. Anybody have any experience with Trade King that they can share?

Can't say that I have. They look fairly new.

In the same idea of questioning. Has anybody ever used Global Payments or know anything of them for buying stuff?

I've used them since 2006. I've had a very positive experience with them. I used them exclusively until recent months when I began trading more actively, so I started using Interacitve Brokers so I could trade actively in foreign exchanges. Foreign exchanges aren't offered through TK, and neither are currency trades, or commodities. 

Unless you open up a trading account and maintain the commission and fee requirements I can't stress how very inexpensive $5 per trade is when you have a non-trading account under $20K. If you're starting small like I did(less than $10k) then this is a very inexpensive way to get your portfolio over that $10k hump like I did while you make more money and save more.

They have a very lean trading platform, but that came very much in handy when I was deployed overseas and all I had was landline speeds. It's features are comparable with other discount brokers. I've gotten what I expected and haven't been dissatisfied.

The main things: I never had problems transfering money in and out of my account and they usually deposited sooner than the 3-days for ACH transfers. I always had my limit orders filled by market close. I did have a problem where I withdrew too much money, but TK called me and I settled the issue ithe same day.

The only problem I see with TK is longevity.

And that's my story with TK

Thanks, Lee, but what do you mean the only problem with Trade King is longevity?

It might not last. Mabe? Looks like they are really trying to bump up their accounts. Fees look low and the process seems pretty easy, but don't you want to do foreign or are you looking for the DRIP mainly?

GPN is defininately having some kind of fraud issue. I noticed a Nissan Murano that usually goes for 16,000 was being sold for 4.000. Yesterday when I checked back on it there was a red flag that jumped up. I am curious what the heck is going on.

Sorry for posting another question that was off topic.

madcow -

I hadn't noticed your question, because it really didn't make since to me, and I forgot it. Later I saw klaracat's post and I thought I was being spammed with an ad or something.
