  6. That was a low commission. What broker do you use?


    1. Hi Frihetsfonden. Nowadays I use LYNX to the North American markets. ( Everything has worked very well, only in currency exchange I think is expensive.


    2. Ok maybe I should take a look at them, I've been looking for a less expensive broker. I use Nordnet now and expect them to reduce the courtage but it seems to be in vain...
