What is NASDAQ?

National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations or NASDAQ, represents a stock exchange system for quoting over-the-counter securities. As such the selling and buying of stocks is done in an electronic network of linked brokers.

The companies that are listed in this stock exchange represent relatively young companies. Other players on NASDAQ are companies that have supervised the experienced in the 1990s high tech boom.

To be a successful investor you'll need the right trading platform. A professional-grade, award-winning platform that offers low cost trades like OptionHouse. The low cost trades will allow you to preserve more of your wealth and save money, which you can reinvest instead of paying brokerage commissions.
Opening a OptionsHouse account to benefit from their low $3.95 stock trades (currently they offer 100 free trades) is a smart idea.
