Rates of $4.95 (NYSE market orders) and $9.95 (Nasdaq and limit orders) apply to trades 75+ each quarter.

Discount itself applies only to stock transactions. You will pay the normal rate on all equity trades at the time of transaction, and your account will be refunded the difference within two weeks of month-end.

Public underwritten offerings are highly volatile and risky and should not be considered by investors with conservative investment objectives.
