Zecco Review

by Investing School on March 15, 2009

Zecco Trading has been around for a few years, but I am finally ready to take a look at Zecco after realizing the power of commission free trades (they offer this without promotion codes btw so everyone can benefit).  If it means saving a couple hundred dollars every single year, wouldn’t you want to take a look too?

Zecco Review Overall

After using the account for a while, I find that Zecco works well for my trading and investments needs.  Right now, it gives 10 free trades a month if you carry a minimum balance or trade 25 times a month.  Even if you don’t qualify for the free trades, trading is still $4.50 which is extremely low.

Reviewing Zecco Share

Zecco has a community forum where investors can share their investment knowledge and tips on the next hot trade.  While you can get the same without the brokerage account via other online sites, it’s nice to see it integrated into the system.  I do need to warn you though to do your own research before you buy into any investment, or else you might be burned.

Zecco also came up with something called the Zecco Zirens, where a few actresses explain trading strategies and terms in a video. I find the videos very good and here’s a screen shot:

Here’s one of the actual videos of Zecco Zirens, talking about Investing Basics

Zecco’s Account Opening Process

Opening a Zecco account is just like opening any online account – it’s lightning quick.  I type pretty fast so I was able to get the application done in 5 minutes and the system took another 10 to approve me and get me up and running.

Why Zecco Trading Could Be a Solution for You

It was free to open an account (there’s no account minimum) and the educational videos were pretty informative. There’s potentially free trades so why not give it a spin.  I am happy that I did.

You can open a free Zecco Trading account here.

I love Zecco. It’s been around for a while now that I trust it will stay for a while (I just don’t need the potential hassle, SIPC or not).

I qualify for the free trades and I’m loving every second of it. Of course, I can use others but why go from free to paid?

I’m okay with Zecco. It’s not broken but it’s not spectacular either. The free trades are great but the benefits end about there. I guess the girls are catchy and it doesn’t hurt to try but it’s nothing but much more than another option for us.

Visited the Zecco site and registered. Simple and fast process.

I love the Zecco Zirens 🙂 At least it made me click on the videos to learn a thing or two about trading.

What’s the deal with Zecco? I mean the free trades are cool and all but it’s only $5 a trade elsewhere. How much can you really save? If each trade is $1000 worth of stock, $5 is only 0.5% of it. You can make it up with a second in the market.

I joined Zecco when they were offering unlimited free trades. Now you need $25,000 to get the same thing. I guess $4.50 is not bad though but still…

I used to be with WellsTrade (from wells fargo) and they had similar problems so technical difficulties can happen to everyone. I’ve been enjoying free trades for a few years now and while I don’t qualify anymore, $4.50 a trade is still great.

Zecco is cool. If you have the funds, the free trades help me automatically invest each month without paying an arm and a leg for it.

Zecco is a good broker and who can ignore the Zecco Zirens? Even though it’s such a gimmick, those ladies are definitely keeps me from clicking stop like so many other videos.

This stock broker definitely keeps inovating, which is always good.

I read really good reviews about Zecco and I think it is worth the try to learn more about their trading process. Of course that includes checking out the Zecco Zirens too!

Even if I do have a background in Forex, I’m still clueless about the real process of investing on it. I hope this site could help me learn the actual. Glad that there’s no need to give a fee at all.

Zecco seems good, I would like to checkout it for sure. Also you have done a nice review here which I was looking off.

I really love Zecco and I have been using it for quite some time and I can say that it offers quality services and I really appreciate it!

I joined Zecco when they were offering unlimited free trades. Now, I am still using the site and it’s been a steady learning curve for me. Thanks for the post!

Can’t get on to the Zecco site right now … says it’s “Temporarily Unavailable”. Anyway my mate has been bugging me to get into trading and suggested I research a bit first. Found this site and it seems to have good info. Hope Zecco comes back up so I can have a go.
