Trading Commissions

Trading commissions on stocks and bonds differ among brokerage companies.† Full service brokerages will charge more for stock trading then discount type brokerages.† Trading commissions costs are usually indicative of the level of service provided to the investor.

In some circumstances, investors are charged a flat fee per transaction.† In other circumstances, investors are charged based on a percentage value of the trade or a set amount per share sold.†

Commission amounts also vary based on the type of order made and whether they were broker or advisor assisted, made on a touch-tone phone, or placed electronically on-line.† †

Bond trades usually have their commissions embedded into the bond yield offered to the investor.† A commission does exist, however, in most cases the investor does not see the commission on a fixed income trade.
