Commission is the charge levied by an investment broker for making trades on a trader’s behalf.

Levels of commission vary between different brokers, depending on the asset being traded and the type of service being offered. Execution-only brokers tend to have lower commissions, as they are not deciding trades on their client’s behalf or offering advice.
