Broker Deals for Black Friday
This Black Friday, hundreds of thousands of consumers will line up at Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT), Target (NYSE: TGT), Best Buy (NYSE: BBY) and other big box retailers with the hope of saving hundreds of dollars on a new Sony (NYSE: SNE) TV or a new Dell (NASDAQ: DELL) laptop.
But while most people will brave the cold to save a buck, investors will be at home preparing for the market open -- hoping to make a buck. It may be a short trading day, but there are plenty of things to keep an eye on.
As luck would have it, there are also a few Black Friday deals that are tailor-made for traders. Best of all, they won't have to leave the comforts of their home or office to benefit. Unlike other Black Friday sales, these deals are just a few clicks away.
Traders will be tempted to gobble up this deal. Lightspeed Trading -- a leading provider of ultra low-latency direct market access (DMA) trading technology, risk management solutions and brokerage services -- is giving investors the chance to sign up and get free trading for the rest of the year.
The aptly titled "Turkey" promotion allows traders to get unlimited options and equity trading (up to a total of one million shares) with zero commissions. The deal ends on December 31, 2012. Until then, investors are free to trade at will.
Black Friday may be two days away, but this deal has already begun. Now when Uncle Bob brags about the 50-inch TV he's about to wait in line for, you can kick back and tell him about the hundreds of thousands of commission-free trades you are about to make.
That deal is only the beginning. In addition to the main course, investors can nibble on Firstrade's IRA promotion, which also offers 90 days of commission-free trading. Investors can get a $200 rebate if they switch to Firstrade from another broker.
As if that weren't enough, Firstrade will give investors $50 for referring a friend.
Ready for dessert? Marketfy -- a curated marketplace that provides financial tools to help aspiring traders create a better financial future -- is offering a special Black Friday promotion: 80 percent off everything!
Not one item. Not a few items. Marketfy is giving investors 80 percent off the entire site.
Needless to say, you won't find a deal this hot in store -- or even on Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN). You won't find it on other sites either. Starting tomorrow at midnight, however, investors will be able to take advantage of this impeccable deal. Simply enter the promo code "blackfriday" (all one word) to save 80 percent.
The promo runs from midnight tomorrow (Thanksgiving night) to Sunday at 11:59 p.m. EST.
