Well ShareBuilder and SogoInvest need to move over; here comes Zecco.
Backed by one of the early backers of Skype, Zecco is bringing $0 commission trading to the stock market. Not only are the trades free (up to a limit of course), but they also have a “community” of investors that haves blogs, forums, etc. They’re trying to bring the social web to trading.
I’ve been participating in CAPS, a stock market game put on by The Motley Fool (see previous post here), and I love the interaction and participation that is being generated by the participants.
If Zecco can efficiently combine the community feeling of CAPS and the easy of trading that ShareBuilder brings, it’ll be worth a try.
