The trade desk will manually update your buying power when this happens.  This is an Apex issue that is being worked on.

Awesome--I just sent them an email so I will update when I hear back. Their support has been wonderfully responsive in the past.

Why don't you try iron bwb? 1 call and 1 put spread.

Just got the following response from Tradier's Director of Operations:

 

That is not the way in which our system does the calculation at the current time.  It only looks at the maximum requirement on each of the spreads and based the total requirement on that.  There is the possibility that our clearing firm looks at it the way that you are expecting and if so, you will get back some of the requirements overnight tonight.

 

That makes it sound like a Tradier issue rather than an Apex one. I'll update if my buying power is updated overnight.

Isn't the SO Tradier/Tradehawk deal less - $109 vs $119?

or am I missing something?

The $109 charge cannot be eliminated based upon contracts traded whereas the $119 can. Therefore, for someone that does low volume trading and is also a member of SO (something not required for the CA offer) the new plan may not be better.  However, for everyone else it will be superior.

Following up here it looks like the margin was corrected overnight, so as of now for trading broken wing butterflies at Tradier you will need enough margin to cover the widest wing with no offset from the other wing when opening, but the correct margin starting the next trading day.

I just changed my TOS rate to $5 + 55 cents a contract. For the volumes I am trading with, this works out less than the .75 cents per contract I had before.

My Ally rate is 2.95 + 40 cents a contract. This turns out to be somewhere between 44 and 47 cents an option on average. With the new deal on Tradier, I am still looking at perhaps going that route.

Update:

THOSE CURRENTLY SUBSCRIBED TO THE SO/TH PLAN FOR $109 CAN CONVERT TO THE NEW CA PLAN FOR $109 VIA TRADIER’s GRANDFATHER OFFER.

How to download csv reports from Tradier / Apex with commissions and fees? Is it possible. I can only find PDF files to download but not csv. 

You can open an account on Apex clearing website and link your Tradier account. You will be able to download your Activity history on csv from there.

I heard back from Tradier that they will be fixing this (correct BWB margin calculation). They don't have a timeframe for it, but suggested 2-3 weeks.

Thanks!

I emailed both Tradier and Jellifin and both mentioned their Android app will be coming out in the coming weeks. I recently signed up for the Tradier/Tradehawk deal for $119, but since I need mobile, I may switch over once the mobile app is out..unless TradeHawk comes out with mobile soon.

Anyone currently using Rho for iOS? If so, how's your experience with it?

Here is the email that I got.

 

A change was made to the margin calculations and the butterfly trades you were look at should withhold the proper amount of margin now.

 

Could you try one out when you have a chance and let me know if things look as you would expect?

 

Sincerely,

 

Chris Lepore

Director of Operations

Do you know if there’s a charge for the mobile app for iOS?

"Rho is a free app but, it is not currently available for the Android.  It should be in the coming weeks, maybe in early March.  One of the partners that we connect with, Mobile Interactive does offer some different app options.  "

So does that mean if you take the tradier $40 deal unlimited trading and you don’t need pay for the extra $40 fee for Rho?
