Chapter 6. Finding a Broker That “Fits” and Choosing a Service Level

Too many beginning commodity traders focus on trading platforms and commission when it comes to choosing brokers to service their accounts. Unfortunately, the quality of information provided such as newsletters and educational material comes in at a distant third. Worse yet, most never even consider inquiring about the hours at which their broker will be available to answer questions, place trades, or provide quotes. Believe it or not, these aspects are critical even for those who enter their orders online without the help of a full-service broker.

The broker you choose could have a profound impact on your trading results.
