Tai Jin,

After posting my question a while back I looked into what happened with my account. I apparently did not read the commission policy very well as it explains away my confusion.
If your account is valued under $100K any trades that exceed 1000 shares are subject to a two cent a share charge plus the flat rate of $20. Thus my 4,400 share purchase cost me $20 for the flat fee plus $.02 for the 3,400 share balance.
I don't like it mind you, I think it cheap of them and am considering transferring my account to Datek. But there are economic realities (read, it cost you money to do that, they have more fees) that need to be assessed before that can be carried out.

E trade was really on my bad list a long while ago before they upgraded their system. For the longest time my account was in limbo and I couldn't access my cash to make trades, nor could I get anyone to return my Emails, and phone calls were out of the question. My ear doctor told me I could suffer damage if I allowed the receiver to be pressed against my head for extended periods of time <g>.
