When an order is partially executed over multiple trading days, the order is subject to a separate commission charge for each trading day. 3. Our records indicate your account is a cash account. Due to Federal Reserve Board regulations, in a cash account, when you purchase a stock it takes trade day plus three business days for that buy to settle. In that three day period, you can sell the stock. The funds from that sell, however, will not be released for trading until the third business day from the purchase. This means you will not be able to buy and sell the same stock repeatedly in your account. You must wait for trade settlement before you will be able to invest in another stock or withdraw your funds. This Federal regulation does not apply to margin accounts. To upgrade your account for margin and trading options, you will need to complete a Margin/Options Account Upgrade Form. This form can be found by clicking on the "Request/Upgrade Options Privileges" link, under the "Update an Existing Account" section of the "Account Services" page. You may fax the completed and signed form to 816-243-3769 or mail it to the address provided below. Ameritrade PO Box 2209 Omaha, NE 68103-2209 Margin Approval Only As a time saving alternative, please note that if you are applying for margin only, you may submit your application online. You will find this online form by logging into your account and accessing the Account Services page. Once on the Account Services page, please access the "Request Margin Approval - (Online Form)" link, located under the "Update an Existing Account" heading. 4. The Federal Reserve Board (FRB) generally requires clients to make full cash payment when purchasing securities in cash accounts. The requirement of "full cash payment" is met by the use of settled funds, i.e. cash on deposit or the proceeds from the sale of a fully paid for security. Securities transactions generally settle three business days after the trade date. Options generally settle one business day past the trade date, while mutual fund trades vary according to the fund itself. Pursuant to interpretative guidance issued by the staff of the Federal Reserve Board under Regulation T, brokerages must monitor cash accounts to ensure that clients are not making a practice of purchasing securities without making full cash payment as defined above. These rules apply to all cash accounts, including IRA and custodian accounts. For example: At the beginning of the day, a client holds $10,000 cash in a cash account. The client then makes the following transactions: - The client buys a position in Company A for $10,000, applying the $10,000 in cash to pay for the purchase. - The client then sells that position in Company A and nets $10,000 in sale proceeds. - Next, before the purchase in Company A settles, the client buys a position in Company B for $10,000 with funds that have not yet been received in the account (i.e., unsettled funds). Under the Federal Reserve Board Staff guidance, brokers are prohibited from permitting clients from making a practice of using unsettled funds to purchase securities. As a result, the buy of shares in Company B with unsettled funds will not be permitted because the client does not have cash in the account on trade date to pay for that purchase. If a client purchases before settled funds are available, the brokerage may restrict future purchases for a 90-day period to the cash available in a cash account on trade date In addition, trades that are placed without adequate funds in the cash account may be canceled without notice. 5. Typically, our systems will not allow a client to place a trade unless the funds have been made available for trading. Ameritrade accounts are self-managed, and it is the client's responsibility to ensure funds are available for trading before they attempt to place a trade. 6. At this time, Ameritrade is only able to communicate with our clients via e-mail in English. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this issue. 7.

Income earned from U.S. sources (such as dividends and interest from U.S. companies) that is received by a nonresident alien is subject to a statutory 30% withholding rate. Residents of certain foreign countries may be entitled to reduced rates under a tax treaty between their country of residence and the United States. Our records indicate that Saudi Arabia does not have such a treaty, so any U.S. source income earned would be withheld at the rate of 30% for dividends and 30% for interest earned. For further information regarding this withholding rate, please refer to Publication 515, Withholding of Tax on Nonresident Aliens and Foreign Entities. This publication can be found at www.irs.gov, the IRS's Web site.
