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. Free for open, funded futures accounts. Requires a funded Futures-enabled account. 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].
