Google Finance has recently made its debut, and Yahoo Finance has recently taken a leap ahead, beefing up its offering with many new Web 2.0 features, so why do we need another pretty looking financial information hub? Commission-free trades for one. Backed by Morten Lund, one of Skype’s earliest financiers, Zecco will bring commission-free trading to the internet. Basing it’s business model solely on income from advertisements, Zecco hopes to dislodge E*Trade, Charles Schwab, and TD Ameritrade from the top of the internet trading heap while also taking out both Google and Yahoo finance - no small feat.
Zecco is currently in Beta. You can create an account and today which will give you access to stock charts, quotes, financial blogs and forums. Commission-free trades are coming soon.
