Broker Survey and Weekend Reading – May 22, 2009
Discount Brokerage Survey
A reader, who is currently trying to complete his Ph. D, requires some data on website characteristics and their effect on customer loyalty to an online broker. He created a survey geared towards those who trade online with a discount brokerage which should take 5-10 minutes to complete. If you have the time, you can help someone in obtaining their Ph.D! He has also thrown in an incentive - all completed surveys will be randomly drawn for a $500 prize. Note that MDJ is not affiliated with this survey.
