1. Regulatory Transaction Fee:

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) assesses transaction fees on national securities exchanges and self-regulatory organizations at a rate consistent with Section 31 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. National securities exchanges and self-regulatory organizations offset the transaction fees by charging their member broker-dealers such as Webull, and we, in turn, offset this fee by charging you a Regulatory Transaction Fee for covered sell transactions. The fee is ultimately intended to cover the costs incurred by the government, including the SEC, for supervising and regulating the securities markets and securities professionals. The SEC recalculates the amount of this fee periodically – at least annually but sometimes more often. Learn more>

 

2. Finra Trading Activity Fee:

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 contract. Learn More>
