Regulatory Fees
TD Ameritrade
"Section 31" Fee:
$0.0000231 per $1.00 of transaction proceeds
Options Regulatory Fee
$0.0166 per options contract
Trading Activity Fee
$0.000119 per equity share
$0.0002 per options contract
$0.00075 per bond
$0.00000075 x value per asset-backed security trade

The "Section 31 Fee" applies to certain sell transactions, assessed at a rate consistent with Section 31 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. TD Ameritrade remits these fees to certain self-regulatory organizations and national securities exchanges, which in turn make payment to the SEC. These fees are intended to cover the costs incurred by the government, including the SEC, for supervising and regulating the securities markets and securities professionals. The rate is subject to annual and mid-year adjustments which may not be immediately known to TD Ameritrade; as a result, the fee assessed may differ from or exceed the actual amount of the fee applicable to your transaction. Any excess may be retained by TD Ameritrade. Fees are rounded to the nearest penny.

The Options Regulatory Fee varies by options exchange, where an options trade executes, and whether the broker responsible for the trade is a member of a particular exchange. As a result, TD Ameritrade calculates a blended rate that equals or slightly exceeds the amount it is required to remit to the options exchanges.

The Trading Activity Fee will be assessed at a rate consistent with Section 1 of Schedule A of FINRA’s By-Laws for trading activity. Current rates are: $0.000119 per share for each sale of a covered equity security, with a maximum charge of $5.95 per trade; $0.002 per contract for each sale of an option; $0.00075 per bond for each sale of a covered TRACE-Eligible Security (other than an Asset-Backed Security) and/or municipal security, with a maximum charge of $0.75 per trade; $0.00000075 times the value, as reported to TRACE, of a sale of an Asset-Backed Security, with a maximum charge of $0.75 per trade. Fees are rounded to the nearest penny.
