4. Fidelity commissioned Corporate Insight to study bond pricing, available online, for self-directed retail investors from five brokers that offer corporate and municipal bonds for comparison to Fidelity’s standard online pricing. The study
compared online bond prices for more than 40,000 municipal and corporate inventory matches from February 8 through February 14, 2018. It compared municipal and corporate inventories offered online in varying quantities. The study found that, on average, the three financial services firms identified in the chart were asking $14.55 more per bond. Corporate Insight determined the average price differential by calculating the difference between the prices of matching corporate and municipal bond inventory at Fidelity, including Fidelity’s $1 per bond mark-up for online trades vs. the prices offered online for the same bonds from the three financial services firms in the table, then averaging the differences of the other firms. An order size of 22 bonds was selected to illustrate the hypothetical trade because this is the average for Fidelity’s retail brokerage account holders who purchased individual municipal or corporate bonds for the 12 months ending February 2018.
Minimum markup or markdown of $19.95 applies if traded with a Fidelity representative. For U.S. Treasury purchases traded with a Fidelity representative, a flat charge of $19.95 per trade applies.

Rates are for U.S. dollar-denominated bonds; additional fees and minimums apply for non-dollar bond trades. Other conditions may apply; see Fidelity.com/commissions for details. Please note that markups and markdowns may affect the total cost of the transaction and the total, or "effective," yield of your investment. The offering broker, which may be our affiliate, National Financial Services LLC, may separately mark up or mark down the price of the security and may realize a trading profit or loss on the transaction.

In general, the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk, liquidity risk, call risk, and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
