BB&T Corp. has introduced an Internet trading service for its discount brokerage clients. The service, rolled out Thursday, allows clients of the Winston-Salem, N.C.-based bank's brokerage unit to make stock and mutual fund trades.

Clients will also have access to delayed quotes on most U.S. and Canadian stocks, U.S. bonds and mutual funds, market statistics, and company profiles and financial news. "A lot of our customers for pure convenience have been requesting it," said Darren Earnhardt, assistant vice president and manager of the discount brokerage, which is part of BB&T Investment Services.
