Deep Discount Broker

AAA

DEFINITION of 'Deep Discount Broker'

An agent that mediates sales and exchanges between securities buyers and sellers at even lower commission rates than those offered by a regular discount broker. As one might expect, deep discount brokers also provide fewer services to clients than standard brokers; such brokers typically provide little more than the fulfillment of stock and option trades, charging a flat fee for each.
