Broker Check

Equity Investing

Equity Services are Brokerage transactions for common and preferred stock, warrants, and other securities, which are listed on the national securities exchanges, including (OTC) NASDAQ.

Margin Trading

Have you ever considered using your brokerage account to secure a loan? Many investors do not realize that a margin brokerage account gives them access to funds at interest rates that may be lower than standard bank or credit card loans. Whether the loan is to fulfill a financial obligation, take that much-needed vacation, or simply make a purchase, it is an extension of credit using the power of leverage, thereby enhancing value without increasing the investment of your own funds. Best of all, there is no lengthy approval process -- all you need is a signed Margin Agreement along with sufficient marginable securities in your account, and the cash is yours. Before trading stocks in a margin account, it is important to carefully review the written Margin Agreement provided by CHA or our clearing firm, Pershing LLC (a subsidiary of the Bank of New York Mellon Corporation), and to consult with CHA regarding any questions or concerns you may have regarding margin accounts. *Please note that you can lose more funds than you deposit in the margin account. Please request a full copy of our margin disclosure statement.
