A New Numbers GuyStocks continued higher again.  With the latest employment data, it’s clear that the labor market is doing better-than-expected with creating jobs.  However, the stubborn level of first-time filers for unemployment shows that the job market will still take some time to play out.

What Principles Guide YouGood Morning Tuesday Financial World.  Brokerage firms make most of their money from their total assets under management, thanks to various fees and transaction costs.  Today’ s brokerage receives less than 10 percent of its revenue from actual trading commissions, thanks to years of competition to lower costs in a bid for funds.

Charles Schwab finally did away with commissions on its online platform all together, slashing their old trading commission from a flat $4.95 per trade to $0.  Time will tell how other online brokerages respond, and how much the reduction to zero cost trades increases trading volume… if any.  Judging by the drop in the shares of online-only brokerages however, chances are Schwab will have competition in the free commission space soon.

Have a Wonderful and Profitable Life!  😉
