Just like with most brokers, ACH transfers are also free at TastyWorks; however wire transfers and physical checks will cost you between $25-$40 and $5-$10 respectively.

Paper Fees

If you aren’t quite ready to go green with your brokerage account, you can expect to pay a $5 fee for opting to receive your monthly/quarterly statements and tax forms in the mail instead of online. A paper prospectus will incur a $2.50 charge.

Commissions on Futures and Options on Futures
