Could anybody tell me how much Exchange fees are for the NYSE, NASDAQ & AMEX ?

Are the S+P & DOW both on the NYSE ?

Are there fees for the LSE and other European Exchanges ? (I'm thinking of the German Exchange for the DAX)

Any help would be appreciated as i can't find this information anywhere.

Cheers........Iain

The exchange fees for the NYSE, Nasdaq, OPRA and AMEX are $1 per month per exchange. So Nasdaq and NYSE would cost you $2 per month. Some providers charge an administration fee for handling.

I pay $2 per month for Nasdaq (this includes the handling fee charged by Qcharts), and I can get the Dow Jones real-time on that sub.

The S&P cash index is an additional 50 cents per month.

I don't know about the European exchanges.

Exchange fees

For trading something like FTSE Futures:

Fees are:

Exchange fee is £0.25p per side, i.e. £0.50p per RT (Round Turn = 1 contract buy and 1 contract sell)

plus:

LCH (London Clearing House) fee is £0.03p per side, i.e. £0.06p per RT

plus whatever your broker charges (for platform and "clearing" fees)

LIFFE have high charges............Eurex (Dax) is cheaper, look at their website or give them a call.

Thanks for the replies - It's no major cost by the sounds of it.
Since only AMEX, NASDAQ & NYSE are mentioned on Mytrack i'll take it that i will pay $3 for those 3 and nothing for the European Exchanges.
The Futures fees are not really what i'm after 900xs but i will bear them in mind for future use - thanks anyway.

Skim - Do Qcharts cover European Stocks/Indices ? At the moment i can only find Mytrack that covers European Stocks/Indices in Realtime.

There is a charge for the European exchanges and it is relatively expensive when compared with the US. From memory the FTSE index is about $11 per month (just for the indices value) and the Ftse constituents are an extra couple of dollars per month. If using mytrack the full list is in the 'Entitlements' section which is in the 'Chat' section. never did understand that bit. Don't click on anything or put a tick in a box without being absolutely sure you want it as some of the options are not cheap and once you have clicked you are committed for a month minimum. They will reset it if you contact them immediately in the chat forum if you make a mistake.

You need to look under European exchanges in Chat -> Entitlements

GSE is $30, Eurex $11, LSE $8, LSE Intl $4 etc... I have also seen people complain about the quality of MyTrack EOD data for the UK, I think they take the last trade price for the close rather than the official close from the auction period. Have no feel right now for the quality of their RT UK or European data but I know that people are using it.

Thanks for that jpwone.
Good job you told me i was going to add all the FTSE300 shares and a few European Indices - it would of cost me a fortune!!!!!!
May have to rethink whether it is worth me getting Mytrack now as i was more interested in FTSE stocks. It may be worth opening an account with IB and just buy a few shares each month to get the datafeed.

theknifemac,
Am i correct in saying i need to subscibe to Mytrack to see 'Chat -> Entitlements' ?
I've not subscibed to them yet - just downloaded the software.
I've noticed it doesn't mention the delayed feed installation just the Silver, Gold & Platinum.

Doesn't seem many Realtime data feeds cover the European Stuff.
I think i'm leaning towards IQFeed at the moment instead of Mytrack, i think i will forget the FTSE350 stocks and just look at the main indices and one or two American stocks. I can probably do what i want on EOD charts for the FTSE350 stocks.

Iain, you don't need to subscribe to see the chat stuff, on your main myTrack window, hit the Chat button, then when the chat window appears go to entitlements and select European exchanges. To get real time data you need to pay for at least the Silver feed I think. Or you can leave myTrack as it is and you will have delayed data (not sure how long the delay is, think it is exchange dependent).

Re your later post, you could use IB but would need to fund your trading account.

Hope this helps.

theknifemac,
Thanks for that - i've found it now. I hadn't loaded Mytrack until now because i thought i had to pick the package i wanted first. It appears the delayed feed is free - the website gives a price of $5 per month.
LSE is $8 and LIFFE $40 realtime.
As for IB - yes i know it is £1500 to open an account. What i was trying to say was i didn't wan't to trade futures at the moment on IB until i feel more confident to increase my stake sizes. Although, if i could trade a few shares on IB i could probably get free Realtime data and wouldn't need another realtime datafeed.

Iain you can see how much MyTrack will actually charge you from the chat module, there is an option to view your current and past bills, don't have it open so can't remember the title.

You could consider opening a trading account with MyBroker in the UK. If you trade with them a minimum of once a month, they pay for the MyTrack real-time Silver plan, plus the exchange fees for LSE, NYSE and NASDAQ, which saves you $28.50 + VAT pm. They are not the cheapest broker by any means, but $15.95 for a US trade isn't the most expensive either.

I have done this in the past and may do so again in the future. Currently I'm not using MyTrack, and have turned off the Silver plan, but kept my account open and pay nothing.

MyTrack's faults are legion, but for me, as a position trader and only occassional short-term trader, shelling out the bucks for something like eSignal isn't worth it. I would suggest you do a search on T2W for 'MyTrack' though to see the sort of problems there are with their service, and if you could live with them yourself.

Hi Knorrie,
I presume by one trade you mean either 1 buy or sell, not the round way trip.
I understand what you mean regarding the problems with Mytrack as i've read all about them. However, for what i want they would probably do for now until i get going, they are cheap and cover all the markets i want. Like you as a position trader they would probably suffice.
