Transaction Costs

Transaction Costs
Costs incurred when buying or selling securities. These include brokers' commissions and spreads (the difference between the price the dealer paid for a security and the price at which it can be sold).

Also referred to as "transaction fees."

This is what a broker or bank makes for being the middleman in a transaction.
