Pursuant to Commission Regulation §40.6, the HedgeStreet Rule Committee has approved the amendment of Rule 3.1(b) which now features the new initial deposit requirement of $100. Additionally, an Active Trader Pricing Schedule is established such that a) the Minimum Trading Fee of $5.00 for Standard Pricing is replaced with $0.00. (Standard Traders are Members that do not qualify for Active Trader Pricing); b) beginning in the month of April 2005, any Member that traded more than 20 times in a calendar month is qualified to receive Active Trader Pricing; and c) if, while receiving Active Trader Pricing, a Member does not execute 60 trades in 2 successive calendar quarters, the member will be changed from an active trading status to standard pricing status.
