    Hi all,

    I’m trying to develop day trading systems for stocks (close position at the close) because I have some idle cash in my account. The problem is whatever bias I found in the markets is not big enough to beat trading cost (commission and slippage). So I would like to ask how much are you current paying across the world.

    To keep things comparable, I will measure the cost in percentage term.

    Commission tick size
    Stocks- 0.16%-0.26% (one-way) 0.25%-1% (per tick)
    Index Future 0.08-0.12% (one-way) 0.02% (per tick)

    Thanks for sharing,
