RE: Debate; Broker or DIY trading?27 Jul 2020 11:40
Online is obviously more convenient and quicker, but I've found that I trade a lot more, thus lose a lot more. The last time I used a broker was during the Dotcom boom. There are slight advantages with a broker in that with large sums one can sometimes get a better price. On the other hand, I have known someone who was given advice on an IPO share by his broker and subsequently lost over £100k and his marriage.
