1 An Active Trader is a person who conducts at least 150 Qualifying Trades (defined below) during the Trading Period (defined below) in either (a) their HSBC InvestDirect (personal sole and joint accounts (the “Personal Accounts”) or (b) their non-personal account(s) (the “Non-Personal Accounts”). A Qualifying Trade can be any of the following: (i) online equity, ETF or option orders traded on a North American exchange, (ii) online equity trades on an International exchange except Hong Kong, (iii) any telephone equity trades, ETF or option orders on a North American or International exchange. Active Trader Rates are disclosed in our Commissions Schedule.
Every month we will determine if you are an Active Trader. Specifically, on the 4th calendar day of every month we will add up the number of Qualifying Trades you conducted in the Personal Accounts or Non-Personal Accounts for the preceding 3 month period (the “Trading Period”). If at least 150 Qualifying Trades were conducted in the Personal Accounts or Non-Personal Accounts during the Trading Period, you will receive for the Personal Accounts or Non-Personal Accounts, as applicable, the Active Trader Rates from the 4th calendar day of the month until the 3rd calendar day of the following month. For example, on April 4, 2020, we will count the number of Qualifying Trades in the Personal Accounts or Non-Personal Accounts for the Trading Period from January 1, 2020 to March 31, 2020. If you qualify as an Active Trader, you will receive the Active Trader Rates in any of the Personal Accounts or Non-Personal Accounts from April 4, 2020 to May 3, 2020. To continue to receive Active Trader Rates, you must qualify every 4th calendar day of a month based on the trading activity during the Trading Period. As soon as you do not qualify, we will charge you the regular trading rates until you qualify again.
We will automatically assess whether you qualify for Active Trader Rates. The trade count for Non-Personal Accounts is not combined with the trade count for Personal Accounts, and vice versa.
Active Trader Rates are only available if you qualify as an Active Trader (as explained above). The zero commissions limited time offer for Active Traders is only available for North American online equity and ETF trading (excludes Option and Fixed Income Trades).
