295 variables, over 30,000 words of research, and over 300 customer support inquiries. The list of records goes on and on. Another six month journey has come to an end and I am delighted to share our latest research with you.
Looking at this year’s 2016 Review, there were 295 variables, a record over last year’s 272, spread across 10 categories (no other publication, print or web, eclipses even 100 total variables). One of these categories, Order Execution, is new and we are extremely pleased to incorporate it, thanks to the help of the KOR Group.
As far as participation goes, 13 brokers volunteered to subject themselves to our thorough assessment. Compared to last year, SogoTrade was a newcomer, MB Trading was acquired by TradeKing, optionsXpress was reviewed as one broker under parent Charles Schwab, and Interactive Brokers bowed out as a participant.
