I am going to rollover my 401k into a rollover IRA. When the transfer is complete, there will be x amount of dollars in the new Rollover IRA Account.

My plan is to invest in large companies that pay LARGE DIVIDENDS since the dividend income is tax deferred.

My question has nothing to do with that strategy.

The question is: When I make a trade, there is a broker fee. Where does this money come from? If it comes from the available balance, is this considered a withdraw? If not, is this considered a fee? What are the implications of fees? American Express charges a custodial fee even if you never make a trade. Others only charge for trades.
