Currently Investing $4,000 personal and $16,000 rollover IRA

Based on my screens I should be making approximately 25 trades a year

What would be your broker of choice to minimize my friction / commission cost?

Currently I'm using Scottrade but at $7/trade friction is up to 4.3%

OptionHouse shows trades at $4

Interactive Brokers has trades at $1 but I see lots of hidden cost unless you’re trading a lot.

Just2Trade shows trades at $2.50 but I've heard lots of bad customer service reviews about them.


What are your thoughts? Thanks.
