    Platform with no OTC commissions

    Any platforms out there that have no commissions/fees to trade OTCs?

    Not that I know of I wish there was. They made quick corrections to statements when they went fee free for blue chip stocks. Otc was free for a week with etrade.

    That's kind of what I was thinking. I was looking at RobinHood for just some small, quick trades.

    Robinhood let a lot of people down yesterday, including me. Site and app down all day yesterday while some losses may have been recouped.

    Yes, makes me a little uneasy, didn't need to trade yesterday but that can change in a hurry.

    If I had options expiring yesterday it would have been worse.

    I had a buddy that was trying like hell to
    close some itm puts. He got screwed because of it. Sometimes the fees are worth it.

    Yeah, I would go ballistic if the platform went down at a time like that. That's terrible

    Trading is essentially free right now and has been all year. TD America and Ally are my companies.
