Notes:

  1. IBKR's Tiered commission models are not intended to be a direct pass-through of exchange and third-party fees and rebates. Costs passed on to clients in IBKR's Tiered commission schedule may be greater than the costs paid by IBKR to the relevant exchange, regulator, clearinghouse or third party. For example, IBKR may receive volume discounts that are not passed on to clients. Likewise, rebates passed on to clients by IBKR may be less than the rebates IBKR receives from the relevant market. For example, IBKR may receive enhanced rebate payments for exceeding volume thresholds on particular markets, but typically will not pass these enhancements directly to clients.
  2. Volume tiers are applied based on monthly cumulative trade volume summed across all futures and futures options contracts, regardless of the exchange on which they trade, at the time of the trade. Only contracts that are traded while under the Volume Tiered pricing structure will count towards the monthly volume. Contract volumes for advisor, institutions, and broker accounts are summed across all accounts for the purpose of determining volume breaks. These fees are applied on a marginal basis for a given calendar month. If for example, you execute 1,500 US contracts in a month, your IBKR execution costs would be: 1,000 contracts at USD 0.60 and 500 contracts at USD 0.45
  3. Give-up Surcharge is waived when IBKR serves as both the prime and the executing broker.
  4. Give-up Surcharge is waived-off for FX Options.
