TheStreet.com recently posted an article for the premium subscribers regarding “Sizing Up Trading Costs” in their options section. The author, Fred Ruffy, pointed to our free trade cost calculator in an effort to show how active traders can save on options and trading fees. “Obviously, if you’re a frequent trader, it makes sense to shop for cheap commissions and to minimize the impact of transaction costs on profitability. Of course, fees are not the only factor to consider when selecting a brokerage firm. But it’s a big one” stated Mr. Ruffy.
