Scottrade now shows the bid and ask price for pinks on their streamer. Plus you can now purchase pinks online without calling the broker. [Eek!]

Too bad I opened a Ameritrade account. Maybe I'll use Scottrade as a backup..

They still have that 1/2 of 1%, but they only charge 7.00 a trade for any order.

I called Scotttrade and they said starting today, pinks can be traded online without broker. For stocks priced under $1, add 1/2% of the principal value to the commissions shown.

Ameritrade - $10.99/trade - all stocks, even under $1

Scottrade - $7/trade - Under $1, add 1/2 % of principal

Breaking point:

$798 principal. Under, Scotts is cheaper, over and ameritrade is... obviously it's the same for both at $798.

I just tried to buy a pink on scottrade online and it said I couldn't buy this online only calling my broker? What gives? I thought we could now trade pinks online.

Pssttt Choicetrade.com ... $5 for anything stock... cheaper then both.. plus no restrictions on what stock you can or cant buy.. nor do you have to phone broker for certain stocks..
