Margin Interest

Long margin Interest

On Margin Accounts, Leverage interest is based on 1-month US Dollar LIBOR interest rate, but not less than 100 bps, plus mark-up.

Long margin interest is charged daily on the cost of open long positions.

Short margin Interest

Short margin interest is calculated on a case by case basis depending on stock availability and prevailing prime brokers’ interest rates.


Margin Accounts below $100,000 (considered “Reg T” accounts) are customarily extended a 6:1 intraday and 2:1 overnight leverage. Often, we may extend higher leverage (up to 30:1 on intraday and 6:1 on overnight positions).

Margin Accounts over $100,000 (considered “Portfolio Margin” accounts) are customarily extended an 8:1 intraday and 4:1 overnight leverage. Often, we may extend higher leverage (up to 40:1 on intraday and 10:1 on overnight positions).

Alaric Securities does not pay interest and does not apply charges on cash balances in Cash or Margin Accounts.

Regulatory Fees



  • 1Clients who meet monthly trading volume thresholds qualify for our Active Trader Commission Group and can benefit from deeply discounted commissions. Once your account is set to any Active Trader Commission Group rate, you will be charged that rate on all shares traded going forward.

    For example, if you trade over 1,000,000 shares per month using Sterling Trader and qualify for the $0.0020 per share rate, you will be charged only $0.0020 per share on all shares traded, not just those in excess of 1,000,000 in any given month.

  • 2All rates subject to ongoing review and may be increased if clients fail to meet the trade/share thresholds listed above.
  • 3Call-in trades are an additional $30 per ticket.
  • 4All stock/ETF pricing listed on this page applies to listed equities only.
  • 5Additional $10 per options contract is charged for expired options.
  • 6Regulatory and Exchange fees are pass-through and are subject to changes without prior notice. All routing fees/rebates and regulatory fees are charged separately.
  • 7Commissions apply to all order types. For share prices, less than $1.00, 30 basis points times the total trade value will be charged. For customers who send an extraordinary number of non-marketable limit orders to the NYSE, Nasdaq, Amex, or other exchanges, and who route such orders direct, rather than using Alaric Trader Smart routing, Alaric reserves the right to impose a surcharge in order to defray specialist order handling charges. In this event, Alaric will provide notice to affected customers.
  • 8Deposit and Withdrawal fees: SEPA transfer – 7 EUR plus bank fees; Bank transfer – 50 USD plus bank fees.
