OptionsHouse Reviews

The Simple Dollar

Great choice for expert traders OptionsHouse is a bargain for seasoned investors, but isn’t the best option for less experienced traders.

Wise Stock Buyer

Great for trade options OptionsHouse are a good broker for anyone who’s looking to trade options for the first time. Their range of options training is second to none and you shouldn’t underestimate the level of training required to become proficient in options.

Cheaper ommission structure options per contact Options House offers a commission structure is fixed and fairly competitive. The options per contract pricing is cheaper than most of the big retail brokerages. The stock pricing is flat rate at $4.95, but most of the traders using this broker are probably not trading much stock. I would like to see an option centric broker that is even more competitive in options pricing.

Money Crashers

Affordable structure fees I think that the low fees are a major selling point for OptionsHouse. They have the lowest fee structure in the industry and a low cost per contract for options trading.

Lowest fees for individual stocks If you are looking to buy an individual stock or ETF, you'll have a difficult time finding a more budget friendly brokerage firm.

Not for investing long-term A low-cost broker that targets options traders with some advanced research tools. While great for active traders, long-term investors wanting to purchase mutual funds or make a few trades a year might want to look elsewhere.

Trading tools and low costs are the pros OptionsHouse has a winning combination of low trading costs and fees plus some of the best options trading tools around. They may not offer the same additional resources as other brokers, but that wouldn't be your primary reason for choosing OptionsHouse in the first place.


Lower price and more trading tools While OptionsHouse may be a discount broker, its offerings easily stack up against more expensive options. The company frequently shows up in our best-of lists, and takes the top spot for options trading because it delivers what most seasoned traders want: fast execution and plenty of sophisticated trading tools at a low price.

Very competitive commission rates The uniting of OptionsHouse and TradeMONSTER in 2014 under the OptionsHouse name was a fantastic marriage for current and new customers. OptionsHouse’s platform is top notch and commission rates are extremely competitive.
