To open a trading account, you’ll have to make an appointment at a branch and sign a couple of documents. Note that you have to at least 18 years old to open an account. Before opening the account, be aware of the related fees. There is usually a commission fee charged per transaction (usually about $9.99) and a maintenance fee charged every quarter.
