*People’s Securities, at its discretion, will determine a Base Rate of interest upon which it will figure the rate of interest to charge its margin account customers. This Base Rate will be determined by referencing the prevailing ‘broker call money’, ‘broker call loan’, or ‘call money’, rate as appearing in financial publications. The Base Rate will not necessarily equal this rate. You will pay a certain percentage above or below the Base Rate depending upon the size of your margin loan.
