Fidelity Investments is cutting its online stock trading commission to a flat fee of $7.95 for all customers, regardless of how many trades they make.
Tuesday's announcement comes four weeks after a brokerage rival, Charles Schwab, adopted an $8.95 flat fee for online trading.
Fidelity's move also puts its commissions below those of two other rivals. TD Ameritrade charges a flat $9.99, while E-Trade charges $7.99 to $12.99, depending on factors such as how many trades an investor makes.
Fidelity previously had a tiered pricing structure, with smaller customers paying as much as $19.95 per trade.
