    why do brokers charge more for number of shares rather than value of shares.

    it's another one of those moronic things that wall street has.

    does it cost more for more shares to trade? sound stupid.
  2. some brokers charge flat fee per trade.

    others charge per share.

    others are negotiable.

    find one that meets your needs.
