Trade Bust/Adjustments

If an exchange or other market center charges Place Trade a trade bust, trade cancel fee or trade adjust fee because of an order placed by an Place Trade customer, or because of a customer bust or adjust request, the customer is fully responsible for the fee and the fee will be deducted from the customer's account. 

In addition to fees charged by exchanges (and in cases where exchanges do not charge a fee), Place Trade will charge the following fees for requests to have trades busted: 

  • $50 for the first bust request in a calendar month.
  • $100 per incident for subsequent bust requests in the same calendar month.

 The above fees are subject to change.
