Regulatory Fees

Regulatory expenses are mandated fees passed on to the consumer. These occur when users sell a stock or ETF, and often cost only a few pennies. For example, if you sell ten shares of Apple stock at $150 per share, you would pay a total of 4 cents in regulatory expenses — 3 cents in SEC fees and 1 cent in TAF fees. These costs are calculated as follows:

SEC (Securities Exchange Commission) Fee* = total price of transaction x 13.00 / 1,000,000
TAF (Trading Activity Fee) Fee* = shares sold x 0.0001119 with a maximum of $5.95

*Fees are rounded up to the nearest penny
