  • Monthly Activity

    As Traders Allied caters to active professional traders and investors, we require that each account generate a minimum of commissions per month. Accounts generating commissions less than the minimum as stated below in any given month will be assessed the difference as a monthly activity fee (Activity Fee = Minimum Required Monthly Commission – Actual Monthly Commission). Please note that the monthly activity fee is based on commissions only, and does not include fees related to third-party assessments such as market data subscriptions or order modification/cancellation fees.

    In addition to monthly fee minimums, we pass through market data fees from the exchanges for any real-time market data service in which a client subscribes. Clients choosing to subscribe to US non-professional real-time market data will have the USD 10 (or non-USD equivalent) monthly market data subscription fee waived if they spend USD 30 (or USD equivalent) or more in commission for the month.
