How much is Motif Blue?

Motif BLUE is a subscription service that costs $19.95 per month.

Each month, it gives you 3 commission-free real-time trades and five commission-free next market open trades for motifs built by you or another Motif community member. It also provides early notifications about new IPOs and real-time quotes on all pages.

What are “monthly commission-free trades” with Motif Blue?

When placing a market order, you will have the option to execute it in real-time or at the next market open. Trades executed in real-time are executed immediately during market hours, and they typically carry a commission fee without a Motif BLUE subscription. Next market open trades for motifs built by you or another Motif community member also carry a commission fee without a BLUE subscription.

As a paying subscriber, your first three real-time trades per calendar month will be commission-free for any motif or stock trade, including limit, market, and stop orders. Your first five next market open trades for built or community motifs per calendar month will also be commission-free.

If you do not use your monthly commission-free trades in a calendar month, they do not rollover to the next month. See Fee & Commission Schedule for details on our standard pricing.

What are “early notifications about new IPOs” in Motif Blue?

Motif makes IPOs available as a product offering and convenience to its customers. Typically, Motif will notify IPO subscribers when a new IPO is made available on its platform. As a BLUE subscriber, you will receive the added benefit of getting notified before non-subscribers about new IPOs available on the Motif platform. Early notifications may help you place orders before an IPO closes, but this does not guarantee that BLUE subscribers will be allocated shares. Early notification is available for IPOs only: it does not include secondary offerings.

What’s so special about real-time quotes in Motif Blue?

Currently, all Motif customers get real-time quotes on their trade pages and 15 minute delayed quotes on all other pages of our site. Using delayed quotes is common practice for many financial websites because of the cost associated with accessing real-time stock quotes from U.S. stock exchanges.

With a Motif BLUE subscription, you will see real-time quotes on all pages.
