Best Options Brokers

 
     
 

On this page I will introduce some of the best options brokers, and will provide links to them and to their autotraded services. You may also want to look at some factors to consider when thinking about online options trading


 

 
     
 
 
     
 

If you can recommend other good online options brokers, let me know and I will review them here.

I have selected some of the best options brokers available for you to consider. These are all specialist options trading brokers, and they all have autotrading facilities. This means that you can sign up with an options trading advisory newsletter, and have the brokers autotrade their recommendations for you, so that you don't need to sit on your computer all day following trades. More than 80 advisories autotrade through one or more of these brokers, which gives you a pretty wide choice. I have set up some pages with basic options newsletter reviews, so that you can make an informed choice.

* If you are opening a new account and transferring from another broker, TOS allows you to negotiate your fees to match those of your previous broker.

NOTE: All of these brokers offer option trading facilities on Android and iPhone apps, but at this time, only TOS offers the opportunity to trade vertical spreads and more complicated options structures in their mobile apps.
