Does Yahoo offer financial services?
Yahoo is not a financial services provider. However, you can link a supported brokerage account to your Yahoo Finance account and initiate trades that are executed by that linked broker. Beware of fake internet sites or emails that pretend to be Yahoo providing financial services
Trades in Yahoo Finance
Yahoo is not a broker dealer. All trades within the Yahoo Finance app or website are processed by a linked broker. Yahoo has partnered with TradeIt to pass orders through to your linked brokerage account.
What if you suspect fraud?
If you see a site or message that claims to be Yahoo providing financial services, you should suspect it's a fraud or phishing scheme.
Yahoo does not:
- Act as a stock broker
- Provide wire transfers
- Provide bill payment for non-Yahoo services
- Process payments between sellers and buyers
- Provide purchase protection or escrow services for buyers
If you think you are a victim of fraud, Yahoo recommends that you contact your local law enforcement officials through a non-emergency number.
