Commission and Fees- There's no free lunch.

In most cases, your broker will charge a commission every time that you trade stock, either through buying or selling.

There are no charitable organizations running brokerage services.

Depending on how often you trade, these fees can add up and affect your profitability. Investing in stocks can be very costly if you hop into and out of positions frequently, especially with a small amount of money available to invest
