In 1994 the JSE moved from a fixed scale of brokerage to a partially negotiated system. Brokerage on the portion of trades above R3 million became subject to negotiation between the client and the stockbroker. With the implementation of the ATS and dual trading capacity, brokerage on all transactions will be fully negotiable between the client and the stockbroker.
