  1. Which do you think should be the standard for expressing comissions

    I have heard the following ways

    1) 5.50 / 1000 shares
    2) .55 / 100 shares
    3) .0055 / share

    Personally I think #2 is the best way to express comissions.
    #1 gets tricky when you have the "five dollars and fifty cents" #3 kinda gets tricky point zero zero five five---> our minds don't really think in decimals.

    #2 in nice. Fifity five cents per 100.
  2. Per share is the only way.
