This is a good time to open a new account with an online stock broker. Earlier on, I talked about how Zecco was offering 20 free stock trades to those who sign up with them (I believe this offer has already expired). These were 20 additional stock trades on top of the 10 per month that Zecco already offers new account holders. Well this time, TradeKing has come up with their own promotion to entice you to become a new customer.
