TradeStation Introduces "Unbundled Equities" Commission Pricing for
High-Volume Traders

PLANTATION, Fla., Dec. 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TradeStation, a Monex
Group company (Monex Group, Inc. listed on the first section of the Tokyo
Stock Exchange, code: 8698), today announced that it has implemented new
"unbundled" equities commission pricing designed to benefit traders who trade
very actively and seek lower trading costs. The new pricing plan will give
participating clients the flexibility to route their orders directly to
exchanges or market centers that offer fees and rebates with the potential to
offer considerable commission savings.

The new commission plan builds on TradeStation's efforts to develop pricing
options that give equities and options traders greater flexibility and better
value in choosing commission plans that best align with their trading
frequency and style. TradeStation recently unveiled new, lower-priced
"flat-fee" equities and ETF pricing to benefit active traders, as well as new
"flat-fee" options pricing. TradeStation also offers per-share equities and
per-contract options pricing to clients who prefer those pricing alternatives.

"Unbundled pricing continues our efforts to provide clients with the greatest
possible flexibility and value in choosing their commission plans," said
Salomon Sredni, CEO of TradeStation Group, Inc. and COO of Monex Group, Inc.
"Each exchange or market center charges different fees and awards rebates
based on how a trader's order interacts with the markets. Unbundled pricing
will give clients the ability to route their orders to the exchange or market
center offering pricing that best suits their trading style and objectives.
We'll continue to review and revise our menu of pricing options to ensure that
TradeStation offers flexible, value-added pricing for traders at every level."
