How does Wealthfront trade my account?

When we trade your account, we route the trade to a broker dealer specializing in trade execution who is obligated to comply with FINRAs best execution practices.  However, we are different than a traditional brokerage account because we do not guarantee the timing of your trades, largely because we do not believe in market timing.

If trade timing, whether it be for a deposit or a withdrawal is a priority for you, we recommend using a traditional online brokerage service that will allow you to control investment timing.
