Most traders and investors - yes there is a difference - usually have an on-line broker. The broker offers many of the tools the itrader or investor needs: Charts; technical and fundamental analysis. With a few clicks of the mouse and/or typing some keys, a trade is placed, entered or exited. There are full-service brokers: These ladies and gentle usually conduct business through phone calls or by walking-in to the office. To trade either way requires opening, funding and maintaining a trading account. Not all trading accounts are the same. Before opening any trading account, a trader or investor shoud do his/her homework to determine what is the best type of trading account to have for the objerctives and goals he/she would like to accomplish.
