Interest calculations

We use the following three accumulators to calculate margin interest:

  • The number of days there is a debit in your account
  • The average of the debit balance for each day it is outstanding
  • The average of the prevailing margin interest rate charged on your debit balance for each day it is outstanding

Security borrow fees for short sales

Fees associated with borrowing securities to satisfy delivery requirements for short sales can vary greatly depending upon a number of factors. These fees may be charged during the duration of your borrow, and may be shared in part or in total by Raymond James.

Please contact your financial advisor with any questions you may have.
