Buy and Sell Stocks Commission-Free

When buying and selling stocks with tastyworks, you won't pay any commission - this applies to an unlimited number of shares. So, whether you buy or sell 10 shares or 200 shares, both trades would still be commission-free.1

Unlike trading equity or ETF options, which are equivalent to 100 shares of a stock per contract, you're able to place stock and ETF orders that are less than 100 shares. These are referred to as odd lot stock orders.

Options on stocks and ETFs also differ commission-wise: you'd pay an opening commission of $1.00 per contract, which is capped at a maximum of $10.00 per leg, and zero commission to close.5

What are Stocks and How do They Work?

Stocks represent units of ownership relating to an individual company.

Investors can purchase a stock's shares if they believe the price will rise. They can also capitalize on downward movement of the stock's share price without being a shareholder.3

What are ETFs and how do They Work?

ETFs basically track the performance of a group of stocks - in some cases, thousands.

While ETFs give you diversified exposure, implied volatility (IV) tends to be lower compared to single name stocks.
