1 $0 per trade is applicable to commissions for online and automated telephone trading of stocks (excluding penny stocks) and exchange-traded funds (ETFs). For stock and ETF trades placed with an agent over the telephone, a $25 agent-assisted trading fee is charged. Each trade order will be treated as a separate transaction subject to commission. An order that executes over multiple trading days may be subject to additional commission. One commission will be assessed for multiple trades, entered separately, that execute on the same day, on the same side of the market. Other fees and commissions apply to a WellsTrade account. For complete information on fees and commissions, refer to the WellsTrade Commissions and Fees Schedule. Schedule subject to change at any time.

2 No-load mutual funds are mutual funds that do not charge a sales load when you buy or sell the fund. A transaction fee is a trading fee that is charged by the brokerage firm when you buy or sell shares of a fund.

3 $30 per WellsTrade household. A WellsTrade household is comprised solely of WellsTrade accounts with the same ownership or address. Households comprised solely of one or more WellsTrade IRA accounts are subject to a $30 IRA Custodial Fee in lieu of the $30 Household Annual Fee.

If a Household Annual fee is due, the highest-value account in the client’s household that is eligible to be charged a fee will be debited in September of each year. IRA accounts will be charged only if there are no eligible non-IRA accounts in the household. If an IRA Custodial Fee is due, clients will receive a remittance notice with several payment options. If a payment option is not selected, the fee will be automatically deducted from the IRA in September of each year.

4 All accounts must be enrolled in electronic delivery to receive the following documents online only, including statements, trade confirmations, other documents, and shareholder communications, excluding tax documents/1099s. Please note that if a client elects to turn off paper delivery of these documents, they will receive these documents only via Access Online.
