Brokers Reviews

Online Broker Reviews

TheBull.com.au reviews many of the online brokers and robo-advisor available today.

Our broker reviews cover those brokers that support stocks, options, ETFs, mutual funds, IRA’s, 401ks, bonds, and similar investments. There are various stock brokers that also support forex, cryptocurrency, futures, equities and commodity trading which will be noted under the “Trade Types” section within each review.

Our goal is to provide the most in-depth online broker and robo-advisor reviews so clients can find the best brokerage or advisor for their investing needs. Each year our team of traders test and assess these firms on over 290 variables which formulate their star ratings for various categories, as well as the scoring for the 2018 Annual Review. A full list of all online broker reviews are listed below. Choose a broker either go to their site or read The Bull’s broker review.
