How do I open an online investment account?

Although most online brokerage firms offer online account applications, most firms require a physical, signed authorization before your account is activated and trading may begin. Some firms may also require a savings or checking account to be associated with the primary account holder’s investment account, and it may take several days for electronic verification. Please check with your online brokerage firm to see what it requires to set up an account.
