A broker is an individual or firm that charges a fee or commission for executing buy and sell orders submitted by a customer.

Up until the 90's, most buy and sell orders were executed by calling a broker on the phone who would then execute your order anywhere between $70 and $200 a trade. With the advent of the Internet, a whole new discount broker industry formed which now allows investors to trade at a much lower cost.
