Every online broker charges a fee for trading stocks. Stock / equity trading fees come in two forms: flat fee and per share.
Flat fee trading means the broker charges a single rate no matter how many shares are purchased or what stock is purchased. This is the most common and what most brokerages use. A per share rate means that a price is charged for every share traded. Most active trading brokers use this commission structure.
Below are all the flat fee commission rates for trading stocks online. Note, it is important to read the commission notes for each broker you are considering to understand the full commission schedule before opening an account.
