Stock Commission

Any fees that one charges for a service provided between two parties are termed as a Commission or a brokerage. When the transaction is between a buyer and seller of stocks then that commission is termed as stock commissions. This commission is usually based on the number of shares or bonds that exchange hands. The fees may be negotiable. Stock commission will not only vary from firm to firm but may also vary within a firm. They will vary depending on the size of transactions, the volume of trade, the amount of investment, the services being provided and availed from the broker and a variety of other combination of factors.

There are three types of stock commission service.

• Execution- This means that the agent or firm will only carry out the clients instructions to buy or sell stocks.

• Advisory dealing- Here the agent or firm will provide advice service but will leave the final decision to the investor

• Discretionary dealing- Here the agent or firm will ascertain the client’s investment objectives and then make all dealings on the client’s behalf.

When one looks at the option of investing in the market then one should shop around for good rates and services that will best suit ones needs. One very important factor to consider while selecting the kind of commission agent that will suit your needs is the type of service that you will require. If you want a service provider that researches, recommends and invests for you then you will require a full service commission agent. Or if you want to just direct the agent to pick up and sell stocks for you while you follow the market and choose the stocks and bonds then you will require partial service only. You can search on the web to find the best agent – pfgbestcommission, schwab commission etc.

While most agents may adjust their rates from time to time discount brokers, as they are called, charge substantially lesser rates and generally confine their services to just the execution of orders at the investors direction.

Online trading has caught on since the 90s. Since then the commission charges have shown a steep decline with the number of service providers going up substantially. As the number of brokers continues to increase in the global economy, this trend of lower commissions will continue. Once you know whether you are going to be an active trader or an active investor then you can choose your stock commission agent accordingly. If you are going to be the former than the best commission structure will be through direct access brokers. If on the other hand you are going to be an active investor then it is better to trade with a traditional retail broker.
