In many if not all brokerage accounts, most if not all uninvested cash in an account is automatically swept into a money market account. In this way the change that you have left over and the dividends paid on any stocks earn some interest at money market rates until you are ready to make your next purchase. Similarly if you sell a stock and then wait some time before purchasing another, your cash form the sale also earns interest at money market rates.
