Looking for a new broker for the new year? Firstrade, the official broker of Fat Pitch Financials, might have the deal for you. They are currently running a triple sign-up bonus. Here’s what they are offering:
- 100 Free Trades with funding of $2,000 or more
- $100 Transfer Rebate with funding of $25,000 or more
- $100 Cash Back with funding of more than $50,000
Plus, you’ll get five additional free trades if I send you a referral. All I need from you is your name and email address. You can send that info to me using my contact form. In return, I’ll get $50 for referring you and you’ll get my thanks plus the referral email from Firstrade. This deal is running until March 31, 2009.
I’ve been using Firstrade since before Fat Pitch Financials even started and I’ve been pretty happy with their service. Their commissions are very low and they’ve done a great job handling all the weird special situation requests I send to them. They are also one of the few brokers that don’t charge annual fees for Coverdell Educational Savings Accounts or Roth IRAs and that is why I selected them for the Special Situations Real Money Portfolio (my son’s Coverdell ESA) when I started it in 2004. I think they are a good choice, especially for investors just starting out with small accounts.
