Pricing Disclosures:

A monthly Account Service Fee may apply based on trading volume or account balance. There is a regulatory transaction fee of 0.00221% of the total dollar amount of securities sold. TradeStation may pass through certain charges, including financial transaction taxes, on the purchase of foreign-related securities, like American Depositary Receipts, that remain long in your account at the close of trading on the day of purchase. Prices, fees, costs and terms are subject to change.

  1. Per-share equities commissions, which under certain circumstances may be lower and more advantageous to smaller-share-per-order traders, are primarily designed for use by active individual, institutional, and professional stock traders desiring the highest level of execution quality and speed. As such, the intelligent-routing algorithm predominantly leverages the advantages of more expensive execution destinations such as ECNs and electronic exchanges.

  2. Flat-fee equities commissions, which under certain circumstances may be lower and more advantageous to larger-share-per-order traders, are primarily designed for use by individual traders who value execution quality and speed, and desire the highest level of flexibility with their execution costs. As such, the intelligent-routing algorithm may favor less expensive execution destinations including market makers.

    Per-Trade, also known as flat-fee equities commissions, which under certain circumstances may be lower and more advantageous to larger-share-per-order traders, are primarily designed for use by individual traders who value execution quality and speed, and desire the highest level of flexibility with their execution costs. As such, the intelligent-routing algorithm may favor less expensive execution destinations including market makers. Per-Trade/flat-fee and per-share commissions shown are based on intelligent order routing. Direct routing of per-trade/flat-fee orders is available at no additional charge for orders of up to 1,000 shares; direct-routed per-trade/flat-fee orders of over 1,000 shares will be charged an additional $.004 per share in excess of 1,000 shares. For new accounts, the per-trade/flat-fee commission rate for the first calendar month will be $4.99 per trade for all equities trades. In subsequent calendar months, the per-trade/flat-fee commission rate will be based on the equities and options trading activity in your account from the prior month. For example, if the total number of equities and options trades in all your TradeStation per-share/flat-fee accounts under the same customer ID is 20 in July, then all equities and options trades placed in your commission accounts in August will be $7.99 per trade.

  3. A clearing fee of $0.0002 per share will be added to every transaction. There is no additional fee for direct routing. $1 minimum per order up to 100,000 shares executed per month, $0.70 minimum up to 1 million shares executed, and $.50 minimum per order for monthly volumes exceeding 1 million. This is only applicable for the commission. The pass-through rebate and fee are not taken into consideration for the minimum commission charge. If intelligent routing is selected, the order will get routed to the destination based on our intelligent routing algorithm, not necessarily the destination with the lowest fee or highest rebate. Care should be taken when using intelligent routing on the unbundled commission plan. In most cases, the same fee/rebate the exchanges charge TradeStation is passed on to the client, but this is not guaranteed. Some normalization does take place.

reduce your trading costs

Scaling In/Out of Positions

You’re long 1,500 shares, and decide to scale out of your position as the price continues to move.

  • 500 Shares @ 1¢ = $5

Total
Commission

$15

60% Savings

Direct-Access Brokerages

($9.99 ticket charge and 1/2¢ ECN fee)

  • $9.99 ticket charge + $2.50 ECN fee = $12.49
  • $9.99 ticket charge + $2.50 ECN fee = $12.49
  • $9.99 ticket charge + $2.50 ECN fee = $12.49

$37.47


Example 2

Fast-Moving Market

You place a buy order for 1,500 shares and receive a partial fill on 1,000 shares.

TradeStation

Direct-Access Brokerages

($9.99 ticket charge and 1/2¢ ECN fee)

  • $9.99 ticket charge + $5.00 ECN fee = $14.99

The market moves away from your price, so you move your order
with cancel and replace for the remaining shares.

  • 500 Shares @ .6¢ = $3
