1. ADR agents that sponsor American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) are permitted to charge the ADR holder an annual custody fee. The fee is administered through the Depository Trust Company (DTC). If the ADR pays a dividend, the annual custody fee can be deducted from that or DTC will pass through a separate annual custody fee, the same way it does when the ADR does not pay a dividend. In that case, the annual fee will be posted to your account by our clearing firm. The per share fee and the date the fee posts annually will differ by ADR and is determined by the ADR agent.
2. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) transaction fee (TAF) This fee is charged on all stock, ETF option and bond sales.
3. Foreign Ordinary Security Fee - SogoTrade charges an additional $50 fee per transaction for foreign ordinary securities that trade on the U.S. OTC Pink Sheet markets. Typically, these securities trade under 5 letter stock symbols ending in the letter ‘F’. These are also commonly referred to as ‘F’ shares and the fee as an ‘F share fee’. Although these stocks trade on the U.S. markets and are quoted in U.S. dollars, the actual settlement of a foreign ordinary security trade occurs in the local market in which the company is registered and in that country’s currency.
4. The following options exchanges assess an Options Regulatory Fee (referred to as the “ORF fee”) on options transactions executed by its members that clear in the customer range at Options Clearing Corporation (“OCC”) regardless of the marketplace of execution.
5. Proprietary Index Option Fees -There are some index option products which are proprietary and listed on a single exchange. Exchanges charge extra fees to trade these products. To offset the exchange fees incurred for trading these products, SogoTrade also charges a per contract fee on these products. This charge will appear in your SogoTrade trade ticket at the time of trade.
