Any premium locate fees will be passed onto the client. These fees will vary. In addition, the client will incur a daily short borrow fee on all short positions held overnight. This fee is determined by the clearing firm, and is not known until the day after at the earliest. This fee can vary day to day, and will be applied every day through settlement of the closing transaction.

Clients who do not elect to receive their confirmations and statements electronically will be charged $4 per confirmation and $10 per statement that is physically mailed. If clients request these documents to be sent electronically by email, then there is no fee for that delivery.

Clients cannot trade any foreign stocks trading is U.S. dollars. These stocks are generally 5 letter stock symbols ending in F. If a client does trade a foreign stock ending in F, there will be a foreign stock charge, as incurred per symbol per day. There will also be interest of 6 basis points annualized on these stocks based on the total position dollar value.

Illiquid Securities Policy – All clients of our firm in aggregate cannot trade in excess of 10% of the previous 20 business day average trading volume of any stock on any day regardless of the stock’s price. In addition, for stocks trading below $1 per share, clients cannot ever trade more than 25% of the current day’s trading volume. There also cannot at anytime ever be more than 5,000,000 shares of any one stock settling during any 3 business day settlement period for our entire firm. If a client trades in excess of these restrictions, then their accounts will be subject to fees and interest charges and possible buy in or sell out of the violating position during the 3-day settlement period of those trades. There will be a $300 fee for any trade that is in violation of this policy. The interest charges will then be assessed on an illiquidity requirement imposed on the clearing firm, which could be many times the value of the trade. The interest rates charged to clients who violate these restrictions will be a minimum overnight rate of 15% of the illiquidity requirement. These are only guideline amounts and lower trading volumes can also trigger illiquid charges, which will be passed through as well. Repeated violations of this policy will result in the account being closed.
