Tips to Protect Your Online Stock Trading Account

First, never share your password information, and try to create passwords that are counterintuitive and unpredictable. For different accounts, don’t use the same password and you should change it regularly. Avoid accessing you account from other computer besides your own and beware when using public computers.

Be very careful with the security of your online stock trading account – if compromised it could be as severe (or worse) than handing someone your credit card information.

Also, take your time to choose the right stock trading service – the money is not always the issue here as sometimes the real value is in the account services you receive, which may help you make a lot more money!
