No, that's pretty consistent. Actually, truth be told, that seems to be pretty good relative to other brokers. I don't think Ameritrade has the same option, for example. One thing you should do is make sure that you've done a price conversion on the underlying shares. If the OTC shares are trading at a premium (which they commonly do), that $45 is some of the cheapest money you'll ever spend.
