In this page I report brokers and their fees, for the purpose of comparison. Since fees are often hidden the dicount broker is not as cheap as they would first appear. I focus on the cost of buying a stock and enaging in a voluntary reorganization. This is a test of a brokers back-office operation and is done by computing the total costs including voluntary reorg fees. These fees are updated based on experience and correspondance. The fees are not always reported on the web pages of the firms. I shall do my best to keep the numbers accurate. GoogleDocs version is my e-mail address, please let me know if you find any errors.
