There appears to be a ~$8 commission applied to each side of a entry/exit signal.

For active trading strategies, this is crushing the performance, when in reality these strategies would be tradable and profitable using a discount broker.

Please note on the website the commission schedule and/or any trade "fees" being applied to each trade.

Please enable a potential subscriber to alter the commission schedule applied to the performance data.

Otherwise, active strategies must use extraordinarily large initial cash positions, to similarly offset the commission as a % of each trade, due to the expensive ~$16 round-trip of commissions.

$8 per trade commissions are applied to each WealthSignals trade. It's a fair commission that's on the low end of the typical $7 to $10 fees paid at top brokerages in the U.S.

Absolutely.

It's a good idea and we should eventually get there.
