Bank Of America Offers Commission-Free Trading With Merrill Edge Platform

Bank of America Corp (NYSE: BAC) expanded its free trading offering Monday with the elimination of commissions on stock, ETF and options trades.

This development follows Robinhood’s pioneering of the large-scale, commission-free retail trading model that many established brokerages have adopted.

“We first introduced zero-dollar trading in 2006, expanded it to unlimited free online trading for all Preferred Rewards members this fall and are now making it available to all of our self-directed clients,” Aron Levine, Bank of America's head of consumer banking and investments, said in a statement. 

“With free trades now an industry standard, attracting clients and building lifelong relationships will depend even more on the value investment firms bring to the table.”
