This is potentially game changing! As a result, other brokerages like ETrade and TD Ameritrade have also dropped their fees for buying and selling stocks.\n\nAs a dividend investor, I prioritize simplicity and solid reporting on dividend paying stocks. While there are a lot of stock market apps out there that allow for free stock trading, many of them have carved out a very specific niche such as M1 Finance which is great for automation (especially with Roth IRA retirement accounts), WeBull (for day trading and options). \n\nRobinhood is left chasing the whole thing without one specific focus. Can Robinhood survive amidst the competition? Today I go in depth with my robinhood review for 2019, and see where we are as it relates to this huge announcement. \n\nSo what is the best brokerage?

Schwab will stop paying commissions

Charles Schwab said on Tuesday that he will stop paying commissions for online trading in US stocks, ETFs and options.

Schwab shares tumble 9.7% on fears the change will hit margins. According to brokers, commissions amounted to 3-4% of net income on a quarterly basis. Paper competing brokerage firm TD Ameritrade collapsed by 25.8%, which is the worst indicator in 20 years. 

Beginning October 7, Schwab, which has $ 3.72 trillion in client assets, will reduce its trading fees for US stocks, ETFs and options from the previous $ 4.95 to zero.. Options trading will still cost 65 cents per contract. Changes will also affect securities on Canadian stock exchanges.

Schwab will stop paying commissions

«We intend to make investing easier and more affordable for everyone», – said founder and chairman of the board Charles Schwab in a press release.

After Silicon Valley startup Robinhood offered stock trading for free in 2013, analysts said it would be a matter of time before large brokerages would also be forced to remove payouts.. Interactive Brokers switched last week on commission-free transactions, and J. P. Morgan Chase in August introduced its own free trading app.

Last summer, the Vanguard Group announced that investors using its online brokerage platform can trade all ETFs for free.

«Free trading is not a new topic in the industry, however the number of firms offering zero commission trading seems to be increasing markedly and we note that many of these companies have more reliable platforms (and capital behind them) than a year ago.», – said Devin Ryan of JMP Securities.

Schwab CFO Peter Crawford estimates that quarterly commissions range from $ 90M to $ 100M. 

The company, which has a market value of about $ 54.7 billion, hopes that the lost profits will be offset by new assets..
