dc.description.abstractIn this document I have made a proposal that online stockbrokers are expanding at a rate that could cause an individual investor to be left vulnerable in the market. The research that was founded to support my claim has come from various scholarly articles, websites, newspapers, etc. To outline the thesis, I first discuss the background of the United States Stock Market and how it was created. Then, I consolidate information on both investment strategy and a few notable online stockbrokers. To conclude my thesis, I connect the investment strategies with the type of investor that should use them. I then go on to depict the pros and cons of the different brokers and how the accessibility and knowledge of investors or lack of can alter trade. This thesis is not in any way proposed to diminish the companies that have created these platforms, but rather draw attention to the issue of inexperienced investing and suggest change for the future. In doing so, I believe that investing can become both more accessible to more consumers while protecting beginner investors from a daunting environment.en_US
