Platform fee for additional accounts?

I already have a TS account with a waived platform fee (due to promotion years ago.)

I am now considering bringing over or opening additional accounts (IRA, LLC, futures, etc.) My question is: will I be charged a platform fee for each linked account or can I use my existing platform to trade these linked accounts?

FYI - I am aware I would need to pay fee's for data (e.g., CME data if I open and trade a futures account.)

Thank you in advance!

@mattz might be able to help answer.

Mike

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)

TS would not charge you additional fees if you can link all accounts under the same "User ID".
This means that you should access all accounts under the current ID you have. so no additional fees for platform.
and no extra CME fees.

Remember, CME fees apply per USER ID, not account. So if you can access your accounts through one ID, you pay only once.

Thank you,
