    Curious as to what commissions you got for trading options/stocks & futures. Also would be helpful what volume/commissions you generate.

    I currently have 1.25$ for options, have not negotiate stocks/futures pricing.

    Heard 1$ for stocks/options and 2.5 for futures. Infact someone mentioned .95 cents for stocks (not very sure) though.

    Appreciate any responses

    Looks like the responses got deleted, not sure whether it was against site rules.. The only responses to this thread I was able to see were those sent as PMs.

    Of the 2 pms that I got, it was on the same lines

    1.00$ to 1.25$ commission per contract
    1.00$ for 100 shares.

    Again, I was informed it was based off volume and also the rates offered are discretionary (so depends on your luck)

    Well looks like TDAmeritrade is really tightening the belts, the commissions rates are no longer as flexible as before.

    Finally here are my commission rates
    options: 1.25$ per contract (happy with it, had it for a while)
    stocks: 3 dollar minimum with .0125/share.

    I was really interested in the 1$/100 shares for daytrading, as I like to get in/out with 100 share lots. Anyway, lightspeed is still my broker for stocks then :)

    I don't even trade futures on TOS anymore. I think i'm grandfathered in from 2 years ago.
