Notes:

  • Volume tiers are applied based on monthly cumulative trade volume summed across all stock and ETF shares at the time of the trade. Only shares that are traded while under the Tiered pricing structure will count towards the monthly volume. Share 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.
