OK - Lets skip all the hype. Most brokerages have nice
web-sites (we like ours) and some have great marketing
What it all comes down to is:
CAn you and your broker WORK TOGETHER in order to help
We invite you to call and talk with us, get to know a
broker who will care about you and your account, and who
will do all they can to help you achieve your goals.
The first major benefit of doing business with Common
Sense Capital is the service. Before you start
trading you should have a complete understanding of the
basics before you trade - The Common Sense Commodity course does a pretty good
job of that. But after that, you MUST have a broker who
has the desire to help you take that knowledge and apply
it to real money trading. Your broker should be your
partner in your trading business, or at least a very
He/ She should:
- Take whatever time
is necessary to make sure that you understand what
you are doing.
- Take the time to
help you learn.
- Make sure that
what you are doing is within YOUR business plan.
- Help you keep on
track to reach your goals.
A good broker is your partner, not a salesman calling you everyday (we
promise not to do this) and trying to put you into a lot of trades that you
don't understand and
don't need to be in anyway to make a commission buck. A good broker will most likely talk you out of
more than trades than not, and help you apply your knowledge of the markets in a disciplined fashion.
Obviously running brokerage costs money, as even brokers have families to feed and
mortgages to pay. However, trading should not cost
you an arm and a leg, and you should be able to
place a trade without having to worry about unreasonable commissions.
