As we all know, total commission will be a lot higher for those that day trade than swing trade. I do both, with my swings lasting typically 2-3 days MAX. About how much has some of the traders here forked out in commission thus far this year or avg a month? Last two months i've made ~80 trades of 1000 share lots totaling close to $900(10.99/trade) in commission for the two months. Been trading for about 6 months, so roughly 2.5-3K thus far this year in commission. I really do need to change brokers. Using a different broker I would've save close to $300 in the two months alone.
