3. To compare brokers, Barron's composed a score that reflects how much of a broker's flow it sends to the best-performing market makers including Citadel Securities, UBS, Two Sigma Securities, KCG Holdings, Susquehanna International Group and Citigroup's Automated Trading Desk using a volume-weighted mean for market orders of all reported sizes for both S&P 500 and Non-S&P 500 securities. Broker scores are based on the overall execution quality of market makers for Q4 2014 routing of market orders for both NYSE and Nasdaq stocks using the market makers' effective spread to quoted spread (E/Q).
Stock markets are volatile and can fluctuate significantly in response to company, industry, political, regulatory, market, or economic developments. Investing in stock involves risks, including the loss of principal.
Foreign investments involve greater risks than U.S. investments, including political and economic risks and the risk of currency fluctuations, all of which may be magnified in emerging markets.
There are risks associated with investing in a public offering, including unproven management, and established companies that may have substantial debt. As such, they may not be appropriate for every investor. Customers should read the offering prospectus carefully, and make their own determination of whether an investment in the offering is consistent with their investment objectives, financial situation, and risk tolerance.
