Internet Brokers is one of the first companies in the world, if not the first, to send subscribers a small number of international trade opportunities via e-mail. Internet Brokers is a virtual company, with few conventional expenses to pass through, such as rent and secretarial salaries, has a Chicago business license, received an article in a Chicago publication about trade, and has dealt with major multinational corporations.
