PennTrade assesses an activity assessment fee on all sell transactions as required by Section 31 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The rate for 2016 is $21.80 per million dollars. This rate is adjusted annually by the SEC and posted on its website.

**If a stock transaction cannot be cleared electronically Paulson is assessed a $75.00 manual clearing fee which is passed through to the client. The manual clearing fee is rare and only occurs in specific instances with specific symbols. Clients are notified on PennTrade, prior to placing a trade, that they will incur the $75.00 fee. After learning of the added fee, clients then have a choice to proceed or not with the trade.

Low $1,500 Minimum Deposit
