Thanks for the input.

I would have to double my number of options trades and double my number of contracts per trade to save money with OptionsXpress versus Scottrade.

The commission for customers under 35 options trades per quarter is $14.95 for up to 10 contracts on OX. 6 contracts on SCT is $14.50.

The stock purchase commission is higher with OX regardless of my activity level. OX is more than double SCT with less than 9 trades per quarter and $2.95 / trade higher otherwise.
OptionsXpress commission structure.

Again, thanks for giving me something to use as a comparison.
