With Sharebuilder, there are a few fees to consider:
- $4 automatic investments.
- $9.95 real time trades + $1.25 per options contract.
However, some of the benefits such as no account minimums, no maintenance or inactivity fees make it worthwhile especially if you consider the $50 sign up bonus. There are also no fees on some ING mutual funds. Sign up today!
