I am looking for a new discount broker house and I was just curious about what brokers Quantnet members use to trade stocks and why?

depends. Stock fees are dynamic. If I remember correctly 0.0005 for stocks.

For options and futures the scheme is different.

I use OptionsHouse.

They have a flat rate for stocks of 3.95 (I was grandfathered in at the old rate of 2.95).
For options, it's $1 a contract for the first 10 (15 for spreads) and then it's only 0.15 per contract after that. #### Abdel ##### Economist I use OptionsHouse.

I haven't seen anything on the site about foreign markets, but I've never tried to trade anything outside the US.
