Cost of Trading

The cost of trading includes more than commissions, fees, and premiums. The cost of trading takes in all monies paid and foregone in the pursuit of opportunity in trading stocks, commodities, futures, and options contracts. Online brokers can attract clients with the promise of low commissions. Although commissions count in the cost of trading they can pale in comparison to the cost of trading in low volume with large spreads between bid and ask prices if traders do not place limit orders. The cost of small cap stock investing especially can mount up if volume is low and liquidity nil. Part of trading analysis needs to extend beyond the spot price and the strike price, beyond Candlestick chart analysis and fundamental analysis to look at the cost of trading in various markets and conditions.

Commissions and fees are something that you will see on the printout of your trades. Commissions have certainly come down from what they were years ago although fees are still with us. This is part of the cost of doing business. For the active trader it makes all the sense in the world to trade blocks of equities at a flat rate instead of a percentage.

Is Amazon Prime Worth It?

  • Email
  • We’ve been Amazon Prime members for the last few years, and for the most part, it’s made financial sense for us. We make plenty of purchases on Amazon, and when Christmas time comes, the two-day free shipping it includes is amazing for last-minute shopping.

    At $79 per year (under $7 a month), Prime is reasonable for anyone who would ordinarily spend that much per month on shipping costs — especially because membership includes thousands of free streaming media titles (similar to Netflix) and roughly 500,000 free Kindle ebooks. So if you shop on Amazon frequently, enjoy streaming media, and read a lot of books, this is a good deal.

    But back in March, Amazon announced it’s raising its Prime rate to $99 per year, which is an additional $20. That’s about $8.25 per month. Since Amazon is eager to maintain its massive Prime customer base, it’s added a new benefit: Prime Music. Similar to

    In Florida, An Appraisal Award May Be A Final Determination Of Liability For A Bad Faith Case – Update

    On August 30, 2014, I wrote about a hot topic in Florida that concerns whether a policyholder can pursue a bad faith case against their insurance company after the claim proceeds through the appraisal process and an award is entered: In Florida, an Appraisal Award May Be a Final Determination of Liability For a Bad Faith Case. Continuing on the discussion of this topic is a recent case of Merlin Law Group attorney Kelly Kubiak from Florida’s Fourth District Court of Appeal (“4th DCA”), Cammarata v. State Farm Florida Insurance Company.1

    The 4th DCA issued a thorough opinion on this topic complete with a detailed analysis of the case law in Florida related to appraisal and bad faith. In the case, the policyholders appealed a summary judgment finding that they could not pursue their bad faith case. The insurance carrier argued that because it’s liability for breach of the contract was not determined, the policyholder could not pursue the bad faith case. The policyholder argued that the insurance company’s liability for coverage and damages was determined in appraisal, so they could pursue the bad faith case.

    The 4th DCA held that an insurer’s liability for coverage and extent of damages through the appraisal process can be used as spring board for the bad faith case. The 4th DCA
