BetterInvesting Magazine Discusses No-Fee Stock Trading

The January/February BetterInvesting Magazine issue’s feature story tells investors the hidden costs behind so-called commission free trades promoted by many leading discount brokerage firms. Investors need to recognize trading cost concessions as loss leaders intended to build assets that might go into more profitable products, according to BetterInvesting Magazine’s Contributing Editor Danielle Schultz, CFP, CDFA. She also cautions investors to expect significant cuts in service in exchange for lower fees. Is this a race to the bottom that’s destined to work out poorly? You decide.
