Hi guys. How much commissions u paid this year
Way over 200K
Delete this one, and make a new poll with 200K+ as an option. Trust me- it's needed.
maybe u right .i thought about that but was not sure .so if u big whales paid more than 200k just vote from $100000-$200000. thanks
About 15,000 last year but this year doing forex only so pay the spread, no commission.
Either way my broker does better than me.
$317.04 so far. The advantage of long term trading.
paid approx $104,000 in commissions (Sec fees included) for 2006 so far.
I would also add an option "I don't know" or "I don't care"
For many people it is going to be a true statement.
For instance I use the cheapest broker for my purposes (global macro) so whatever the commission are I will pay them. As long as I make money who gives a **** if you lose a bit on slippage, bid/offer, commissions, hardware, software, broadband, Bloomberg or anything else....
Of course I have a good idea what I really spend for each of above - however I do not think the knowledge of that means anything - unless you want to start your own brokerage .
Ill wind up at over 450k ... but that includes ECN (rebates and fees), SEC fees, trading activity fees, and everything else.
The SEC is killing me on the fees.... they keep delaying the cut.... now we have to wait till Feb. http://sec.gov/news/press/2006/2006-203.htm
I've paid about $14.10 this year in comissions. I've only made one round trip so far (but paper traded like a mofo).
