Faster trading where you can
route your trades directly
to the exchange floor, bypassing the middleman, and
trading during extended
market hours, all with a few mouse-clicks have made direct-access brokers
a big hit among active traders. Initially,
when the direct-access brokers entered
the online brokerage industry, they were
met with skepticism and wariness. However, the explosive growth of their market drastically changed all that and now, traditional brokerages are downright
anxious to join forces with direct-access brokers.
