NOTICE REGARDING THE ORDER PROTECTION RULE
The following is being provided to you pursuant to FINRA Rule 5320, the Order Protection Rule, a copy of which can be obtained at www.finra.org.
Morgan Stanley Wealth Management and our trade routing destinations may trade principally at prices that would satisfy your equity trading order through our and their use of internal controls, such as information barriers and separate lines of supervision, that operate to prevent a trading unit that handles principal positions from obtaining knowledge of customer orders held by a separate trading unit. With respect to certain "Not Held" large orders (orders for more than 10,000 shares and $100,000), the same internal controls may not be available. For these orders you may instruct us that you do not wish us or our trade routing destinations to trade principally alongside your order. Such instruction will limit the range of execution alternatives that we are able to offer.
Additional information regarding the handling of your equity orders is available online here.
