Trading Platforms

These are the trading platforms I use.  Many have sign up bonuses including free stocks and free crypto.  I always recommend having more than one broker.  Some brokers are better for long term investing, some are better for trading, and some are better for crypto.  Below you can see which platform is best for each type of trading or investing strategy you use.
