    • Sale restriction on illiquid OTC stocks. If you are trying to trade an OTC stock, your order might be rejected (i.e. not accepted) if the quantity exceed certain percentage of the daily average volume of that stock.

It is possible that after you purchase a stock, it may become non-DTC eligible later on (i.e. you have to bear the non-DTC clearing fee if you sell it). Non-DTC clearing fee is currently USD $400.

Any other fees will be passed through at cost.
