1 The use of Stop Loss or contingent orders may not protect profits, and may not limit losses to the amount intended. Certain market conditions make it difficult or impossible to execute such orders.
2 Transaction fee pricing is per contract per side. The transaction fee only applies to futures. There is no fee for stocks and stock options.
Demo available on a limited basis.

* For any month in which your trading exceeds 500,000 shares of stock, 5,000 stock option contracts or 5,000 futures contracts (2,500 round-turns or 5,000 sides), Vision will provide RealTick free of charge. Volumes below these figures will result in a platform cost of $250 per terminal, per month. Note that Vision's fee waiver for volume relates only to the cost of the platform. Additional features and add-ons which you elect to utilize will be passed on at cost by Vision at the then applicable monthly rate. If you have more than one terminal, the figures above need to be multiplied by the number of terminals to continue to receive the fee waiver. For example, if you have three terminals, Vision will waive the monthly cost for each terminal if your trading volume that month exceeds 1.5 million shares of stock, 15,000 stock option contracts and/or 15,000 futures contracts. If you have three terminals and trade one million shares Vision will waive the cost of two terminals and bill you for the third terminal.
