Below is a list of the most popular broker platforms the Tykr community uses. No matter where you live in the world, at least one of the brokers listed below should allow you to buy and sell stocks.


Q: What types of fees do brokers typically charge?

A: Fees can fall into the following categories.

  • A commission based on buying or selling a single stock.
  • A spread which is the difference between the buy price and the sell price.
  • Margin interest for borrowing money from your broker to buy stocks.
  • Non-trading fees. Includes deposits, withdrawals, and assisted trades with a customer reps.

For example, Robinhood says they are Commission-Free but they actually charge a fee of approximately $0.000119 to sell a stock. Although they are not truly free, the commission is extremely small. Most brokers charge some sort of small fee like this which is totally fine.

Q: Should you care about fees?

A: Short answer. No.

Tykr is a platform meant for investing not trading. With investing, you may complete a few trades per month whereas with trading you may complete a few trades per day. In other words, traders rack up fees whereas investors do not. If you ever heard the quote “Don’t step over dollars to chase pennies”, this is a perfect example. The effort of worrying about fees isn’t worth your time. Your investment returns will greatly outweigh the fractional pennies you pay to buy and sell stocks. We believe all brokers should be up-front with their fees but if they’re not, we’re not going to worry about it.
