How to adjust the commission rules

Postby evdl » 02 Jan 2013

I try to use > or < or >= or - in the commission rules manager but it gives a popup with the message "this sign is not allowed" (translated this from the dutch language, so in english the message could be somewhat different).

How can I enter for example this in the commission rule manager for IB:

Monthly Value Per trade fee
<= 10,000,000 0,05%
10,000,001 - 100,000,000 0,03%
> 100,000,000 0,02%

The volume values that are used like 0-9999 can not be changed it seems.

Ok, I get it, penny dropped.

In the first line, you can't fill anything in the volume field and you don't have to.

In the second line you fill in the begin value of the second interval (this case 10,000,001) in the volume box and it automaticly creates the interval 0 - 10,000,000 in the first line.

The third line you fill in the begin value of the third interval 100,000,001, and it will create the second interval 10,000,001 - 100,000,000 and also create the last interval >= 100,000,001. As long as you don't fill in a fourth line it will keep the last line >=

In the min value, you fill in the minimum commission etc.

Thanks.
