A net transaction is a principal transaction whereby Weeden, after having received an order to buy (sell) an equity security, purchases (sells) the security at one price and then sells to (buys from) you at a different price. The price difference represents the compensation that Weeden receives for facilitating your order. If you do not wish to have your orders handled on a net basis, please inform your Weeden representative or the Chief Compliance Officer.

In the event that you are not now, or ever cease to be, an “institutional account” as defined above, you must notify us in writing immediately.
