About E*TRADE’s Commission-Free ETF Program

You can buy and sell the exchange-traded funds (ETFs) available through the E*TRADE Securities Commission-Free ETF Program without paying brokerage commissions. For margin customers, certain ETFs purchased through the program are not margin eligible for 30 days from the purchase date. To discourage short-term trading, E*TRADE Securities may charge a short-term trading fee on sales of participating ETFs held less than 30 days. The list of commission-free ETFs is subject to change at any time without notice.

E*TRADE Securities LLC (ETS) has contracted with certain ETF companies to receive compensation in connection with the purchase of ETFs offered commission-free through ETS. This additional compensation is paid by an affiliate of the ETF. The compensation ETS receives as a result of these relationships is paid based on initial setup fees, and a percentage of invested assets ranging from 0 to 0.15% per annum, depending on the fund company.

If you have any questions about the Commission-Free ETF Program, call us anytime at 800-ETRADE-1 (800-387-2331).
