Im trying to see if I got IB commisions structure correctly:
http://individuals.interactivebrokers.com/en/p.php?f=commission#stocks2

It is a "cost plus" where you need to add-up different commisions, here is the excel I came up with,
anyone has experience with that?

@YuvalW, thanks for this. I was looking for this in fact, as the IB site is not very helpful with their examples on Cost Plus.

But your spreadsheet does not seem to show the liquidity rebates?

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Hi Mike,

I've been on the "cost plus" structure for quite some time, and honestly I never understood the commissions, it is quite complicated because it depends where the order is routed to.
Anyway, here is a sample for some commissions I paid:
