Exercises and Assignments
For each exercise or assignment in a given position you will be charged $5.00

Good-Til-Cancelled (GTC)
Orders that do not fill in their entirety and remain open will be subject to separate commission charges for each day’s transactions. Only one commission charge will be incurred if a GTC order is filled in multiple lots during the same day. Standard commission rates apply – plus any relevant per-contract charges.

Modified Orders
Modifying an order cancels the original order and creates a new order. Partial fills on the original order are subject to the commission at time of order. Commissions for fills for the modified order are calculated as if it were a new order.

Selected Index Options
There is a small number of index option products for which exchanges charge additional fees to customers. The product list includes, but is not limited to, SPX, VIX and OEX. To offset these exchange fees, OptionsHouse will charge an additional $.35 per contract. This charge will appear in your OptionsHouse trade ticket for affected symbols at the time of trade. For a complete list of these symbols click here.

Note: There are no additional fees for ETFs such as QQQQ or SPY.

Directed Orders
Options orders directed by a customer to a specific exchange for execution are subject to a $0.10 per contract fee. OptionsHouse also reserves the right to pass-through additional exchange fees it incurs as the result of this activity. Contact OptionsHouse for more information.

Paper Statements
Our clearing firm, Apex Clearing Corporation, assesses a $2 monthly processing fee to customers who elect to receive paper statements. A $2 per statement charge will also be assessed to customers who request to have their prior account statements printed and mailed to them.
