Trade Cost Calculator

Use our trade cost calculator to estimate investing savings by comparing online broker commissions and fees (Also see our list of best brokers for cheap trading. Many of the brokers have varying commissions and fee structures which makes it complex to compute what your actual savings might be if you were to open an account with them. Our goal is to help you accurately estimate those stock, option, and mutual fund trade costs for a period of one to three years.

To start, input your current brokerage commission fee info for stocks, ETFs, options, and mutual funds. Then, enter approximately how many trades you make on average each quarter or three month period. Finally, select how long to calculate for (1, 2, or 3 years) and this will determine how long to project your potential trade savings for.
