Equity Trader Alert #2012 - 18
NASDAQ Updates Trading Rights Fee, Effective Tuesday, May 1, 2012
What you need to know:
What is changing?
Historically, NASDAQ has charged a Trade Recording Fee of $0.029 per NASDAQ trade report to offset regulatory, clearing and data storage costs. This fee was waived for firms that executed over 15,000 trades per day on average over the course of the trading month.
Pending filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), effective May 1, 2012, for simplicity purposes the Trade Recording Fee will be retired and the fees will be rolled into the Monthly Trading Rights Fee. The new Monthly Trading Rights Fee will be $1,000 per firm.
