When on a cent per share basis you never think about the number of tickets you generate. It is a great thing for the flexibility it provides and what it does for your bottom line if you trade a lot. 3X more net profit this month if I was on a penny a share deal + fees. Recently I resorted to only focus on my trading and to forget costs alltogether. Scaling in and out of positions, reducing exposure(position size) when I felt necessary, etc. As a result, my performance has improved quicker and more comfortably. Scalping really agrees with me, although it wouldn't be right without the fee schedule to match. Even a penny a share + fees(a whole 'nother issue) seems like a reasonable amount of profit for a broker to Earn. Any broker that has insane ticket charges is probably on the broker side of the business because their greed was too intense to make it as a trader. I trade prop with no money down so what can I do but save, learn & deal. Any input would be great................Thanks!!
