When purchasing or selling (or proposing to do either) the following line shows up:

The trade above includes an estimated commission of "n" CAD

I saw it from CIBC InvestorsEdge also. The buy / sale amount are included commission also. It also indicates on paper contract as '$20' as commission.

The problem is not the trading costs but the actual yields available on bonds these days. It was not so bad 3 or 4 years.

Yields are falling down greatly when many economists and fixed income analysts were predicting 3.25% 10 year U.S. treasuries in 2014.

It looks like downhill from here on and that just sucks.
