Zecco ReviewOpen an Account
Zecco has officially merged with TradeKing to form TradeKing Group. Many of the great platform features as well as the mobile trading apps are being integrated into the new brokerage.
Streaming quotes alongside other basic platform options cost extra; pre and post hours trading not supported; overall community lacks credibility.
Investors looking for quality research at a discounted price.
