Notes:

  1. Volume tiers are applied based on monthly cumulative prime brokerage trade volume summed across all US and Canadian stock and ETF shares at the time of the trade.
  2. Trades where the commission cap is applied do not count towards the monthly volume tiers.
  3. Value tiers are applied based on monthly cumulative prime brokerage trade volume summed across all stock, warrants and ETF shares. This is calculated once daily, not at the time of the trade. As such, execution reductions will start the next trading day after the threshold has been exceeded.
  4. Share or contract volumes for advisor, institution, 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.
  5. Volume tiers are applied based on monthly cumulative prime brokerage trade volume summed across all futures and futures options contracts, regardless of the exchange on which they trade, at the time of the trade.
  6. Commissions for US FUT and FOP are per contract. In addition to the commission charge, applicable Exchange Fees and Regulatory Fees will apply.
