Up to four legs except covered calls and puts
(One base ticket charge per spread, straddle, or combo)
$20.00 per trade
Treated as a single leg options trade + $4.95 for the stock leg.
Exercises and Assignments
For each exercise or assignment in a given position you will be charged $4.95.
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.
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.
Proprietary Index Option Products
There are a number of index option products which are proprietary and listed on a single exchange. Exchanges often charge premium fees to trade these products. To offset these additional exchange fees incurred for trading these products, OptionsHouse also charges a per contract fee on a small number of these products. This charge will appear in your OptionsHouse trade ticket for affected symbols at the time of trade. Following is a list of these symbols and fees.
