...won't make you a goddam dime when what's working for you now stops working later. Are you scrambling to save that extra 1/10-2/10th cent? Why? Are you worried your current trading methods are so marginal that low costs are the only hope you have? That's not how to make money. There's a world of firms with great rates. Everyone should strive for a good deal, but if commission cost becomes your deciding factor, you deserve to lose every last cent you have left in your account....and BELIEVE ME....you will! The market is evolving exponentially, thanks to ruthless competition and automation. That means your strategies will lose effectiveness far faster today than they did even five years ago. When that happens, your firm better be able to offer you something more than a good rate.
