SEC Rule 606 Disclosure

The Firm, in its efforts to seek best execution, routes client orders to national securities exchanges, alternative trading systems (ATSs), including electronic communications networks (ECNs) and other market centers. Certain market centers offer credits (deemed payment for order flow) for orders that provide liquidity and may charge access fees for orders that take liquidity. In some cases, the credits offered by a market center may exceed the charges assessed, such that a market center may make a payment to ViewTrade Securities in relation to orders directed to such market center. In addition, ViewTrade Securities routes orders to broker dealers who are market makers in securities.
