Which brokerage firm should I use to trade options?

We encourage you not to use a full-service brokerage firm because you’ll pay significantly higher fees to get in and out of trades. Overall, most brokers charge a set fee for each options trade (usually around $5 to $9) and then a variable fee per contract (about $0.50 to $2 per contract).

Below, we have listed 10 of the top-rated options-trading brokers as well as some of their commission fees. Keep in mind that many of these fees may be slightly higher or lower based on your trading frequency.
