Based on data from IHS Markit for SEC Rule 605 eligible orders executed at Fidelity between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019. The comparison is based on an analysis of price statistics that include all SEC Rule 605 eligible market and marketable limit orders of 100–1,999 shares. For both the Fidelity and Industry savings per order figures used in the example, the figures are calculated by taking the average savings per share for the eligible trades within the respective order size range and multiplying each by 1000, for consistency purpose. Fidelity's average retail order size for SEC Rule 605 eligible orders (100–9,999 shares) during this time period was 836 shares. The average retail order size for the Industry for the same shares range and time period was 453 shares.
