TradeStation Announces New Pricing Policies Designed to Deliver More Flexibility, Greater Value

PLANTATION, Fla., July 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TradeStation, a Monex Group company (TSE: 8698) and award-winning broker-dealer and futures commission merchant, today announced new pricing policies designed to give equities and options traders greater flexibility and better value in choosing the commission plan that best suits their trading frequency and style.

TradeStation is introducing two new, lower-priced "flat-ticket" equity commission tiers. With pricing as low as $4.99 per trade, this new equities pricing should greatly benefit frequent traders.

TradeStation is also introducing "flat-ticket-plus" tiered options pricing, allowing customers to take advantage of the company's lower flat-ticket equities pricing. Customers can trade options for as low as $4.99 per trade plus a 20¢ per-contract fee. Moreover, TradeStation will combine customers' equities and options trades for the purpose of meeting the new commission pricing thresholds.

TradeStation will continue to offer per-share equities and per-contract options pricing to customers who prefer that pricing alternative.

"Our new pricing structure is all about flexibility and value," said Salomon Sredni, CEO of TradeStation Group, Inc. and COO of Monex Group, Inc. "Giving traders a menu of pricing options to choose from makes it easier for them to select the plan that best meets their needs. Offering flexible, value-added commission pricing is just one of the ways in which we're working to better serve our customers."
