  1. The Non-professional Data Bundle is free to clients with funded Equities/Options accounts who generate at least $25 per month in aggregate commissions across all equities, options, and futures accounts per username login. Forex activity is not included in this calculation. Applicable commissions will be attributed only to trades that were entered under the username login. For example, an order placed through the trade desk would not count toward the $25 commission level. Those clients who do not reach the $25 commission level in a calendar month will be charged a data fee of $7.50 per month that will be deducted from the Equities/Options account with the largest cash balance. If the client does not have an account with a sufficient cash balance to be charged this data fee, the Level 1 Data Bundle will be automatically removed from the account. The client will be responsible to add cash or to liquidate sufficient positions in an account to provide the cash balance sufficient to cover this fee.
  2. In order to receive market data for futures, all users must complete the Uniform Subscriber Agreement during the online futures account application or available at this link. This completed document can be faxed (310-388-3115) or emailed to [email protected]
  3. All data feeds will be automatically disabled once an account value (including cash and positions) has fallen below $100. Data feeds may be reactivated with additional funding and by emailing [email protected]

Professional Fees

You are considered a professional if you are:

  • Registered or qualified with: the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission, any state securities agency, any securities exchange or association, or any commodities or futures contract market or association, or
  • Engaged as an "investment advisor" as that term is defined in Section 201(11) of the Investment Advisor's Act of 1940 (whether or not registered or qualified under that Act), or
  • Employed by a bank or another organization that is exempt from registration under Federal and/or state securities laws to perform functions that would require you to be so registered or qualified if you were to perform such functions for an organization not so exempt. or
  • An Entity (corporate, LLC, partnership, organization, institution, certain trusts, etc.)

MB Trading is required to perform appropriate due diligence in determining if you are a Professional under the guidelines created by the Exchanges. Those opening entity accounts, declaring themselves to be Professional, and/or those working in qualified occupations/employers, will automatically be viewed as Professional and will be required to pay the appropriate exchange fees for data. Additionally, if in the course of doing our due diligence MB Trading determines that you meet the criteria of a Professional, you will also be charged professional exchange fees for data.

Professional fees are billed directly by the NYSE, AMEX, ARCA and NASDAQ each month.
