Per-Trade vs. Per-Share Commission – Which is Better?

Per-Trade vs. Per-Share Commission – Which is Better?

As a very active trader, my commission fees run into the thousands each year.

Some years I end up paying more than other years, and it all comes down to how much trading volume I generated in that particular year.

There is no doubt that commission rates eat into profits. Here in the US, there are a variety of online discount brokers to choose from and competition among them is fierce to get your business.
