Deciding which broker to go with can be difficult. They all pretty much provide the same service, however the key is to find the broker that is suited to your trading personality.

I currently have two brokers which I have been with for the past 5 years. As cliche as it sounds, I have not had a problem at all with these brokers. Their customer support is flawless. Below I will introduce the ideal brokers that in my opinion have served me well on my trading journey.
