GoogleTrade, Inc. (“GoogleTrade” or “We”) is registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) as a broker-dealer and is a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”). Brokerage and investment advisory services and fees differ and it is important that you understand these differences.

Free and simple tools are available to research firms and financial professionals at, which also provides educational materials about broker-dealers, investment advisers and investing.


We provide brokerage services to retail and institutional investors, including the buying and selling of equities, options, Forex and futures. Brokerage services are limited to these types of investments.

We offer several non-proprietary electronic platforms for which investors can conduct trading. Investors can create their own custom trading and investment strategies and the platforms allow investors to test and monitor the activity in their accounts. While prices vary among the various trading platforms, all such costs are passed along to the investor. We also offer market data packages. The costs of these packages are similar to each other and all such fees are passed on to the investor. We receive none of the fees associated with platform or market data charges.

We do not make recommendations regarding securities, investment strategies or account types. We do not provide you with investment monitoring services, nor do we accept authorization from you to trade the account.

We require a minimum initial funding level of $25,000 for all accounts opened at GoogleTrade Trading and $5,000 for accounts opened through Venom Trading, which also allows futures and Forex accounts. All non-retirement accounts opened above $25,000 are deemed margin day trading accounts.
