Inactivity Fees**

Accounts that do not generate at least $30 in commissions over a rolling three month period will be charged a monthly inactivity fee of $30.

For example, take an account that opens on January 20th. No commissions are generated in January or February. In March, $15 in commissions are generated, and in April $10 in commissions are generated. On April 1, the account will be charged $30 since commissions totalled less than $30 over the full prior three months. If in April the account generates $6 in commissions it will have generated $31 in commissions over the full prior three months and will not be charged an inactivity fee on May 1.

* Updates to the list of fees made on the website are made on a best efforts basis, however all fees are subject to change without notice. This list may not include all the charges that may impact an account.

**Inactivity fees apply to all accounts, including those that are closed but that maintain any balance or positions. Accounts are grouped by the primary tax ID on file for the account in determining total commissions that pertain to waive-out levels; accounts without a tax ID are not grouped and are considered seperate for waive-out purposes. Fees and other charges are not applicable when determining the amount of commissions generated by an account. Accounts for GX Trader are subject to a $10 monthly inactivity fee instead of the regular fee.
