For a $20,000 sitting in a Money fund in a plain IRA account. Let's say I'm going to trade it into F4 mix
like: price amt shares
CAT Caterpillar $47.00 $5,000 106.38
GT Goodyear Tire $53.00 $5,000 94.34
GM General Motors $58.94 $5,000 84.83
T AT&T $60.44 $5,000 82.73

with say 4 trades per year. How do full-serve commissions compare (where it sits today) with say, Waterhouse at $12/trade for this kind of activity?
