Zecco.com recently announced upgrades to their trading platform. When Zecco initially launched in 2006, their focus was to deliver solid service at a bare bones price. Over the years Zecco found that although investors wanted low commissions, they also wanted a trading service with a rich set of advanced features. Although Zecco has now eliminated their initial offer of "10 free trades per month" they continue to charge one of the lowest commissions in the industry as compared to firms such as: Scottrade, Schwab, TD Ameritrade, and E*Trade. In addition to Zecco's low commissions, they also have improved their trading service with the following newly implemented features: Zecco Streamer Lite, Zap Trade, and Zecco Mobile Lite app.
Zecco Streamer Lite is absolutely free with no obligation. This free version of the streamer gives users the choice of streaming delayed quotes covering all major exchanges or real-time bid/ask and last sale information from the BATS exchange for over 1,000 of the most traded stocks. Zap Trade is a browser plug-in that enables you to get real-time quotes and submit stock trades from your Zecco Trading account while you are visiting popular investing research sites. The Zecco Mobile Lite app allows you to watch your investments and stay current on the latest market news, stock and option quotes. It requires an Apple iOS 4.0 (or higher) device. Compatible devices include the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad, and the 2nd generation (or later) iPod Touch. Get more information about Zecco here.
