Take Control of Your Online Trading Costs

Seasoned investors know the importance of controlling commission costs. At Virtual Brokers, you can easily choose the commission plan that best suits your trading or investing style with just one click.

Commission Options Based on Your Trading Profile

Can selecting a pricing plan really help control commission costs? You bet it can. By setting your commission schedule according to the kinds of trades you’re making, you can determine which pricing structure maximizes your return for the day.

Consider the following example. If on a Monday you would want to make a commission-free ETF purchase, you would simply select this option the first time you log onto the VB WebTrader platform. For the rest of that trading day, all your ETF purchases would be commission-free, regardless of the order size. Come Friday, you might be interested in trading one particular company through the trading day, so you can use the “Classic Commission” plan. With our flexible and convenient pricing plans, keeping your commission costs in check is as simple as one click.

Customize Your Platform

From desktops to smartphones to phablets, no matter what the size of your screen, Virtual Brokers has a platform that can help you trade from it.

With eight industry leading trading platforms to choose from, you can customize how you want to trade. Features such as real-time watchlists, quotes, charting, screening, alerts and account status mean you have full view of the information you need to successfully trade.

Building Wealth Commission-Free

Fans of dividend investing enjoy putting their money to work for them. Virtual Brokers offers two industry-leading services for dividend oriented investors: our Dividend Purchase Plan (DPP) and our innovative Self-directed Dividend Purchase Plan (SDPP). With these plans you can choose to put your dividends to work for you by reinvesting them in the same security or by putting them to work by investing them elsewhere. The best part: you can build your wealth commission-free. Learn More
