Fees and Fees

 

Futures Fees

We cooperate with clearing houses, so here you can get the lowest commissions in the market, because on average in the market it is technically not even possible everywhere. A huge advantage is that we also minimize the costs of clearing and trading platforms, including routing fees. Compare for yourself, we offer fees of only 10 US cents on the CQG data feed, which is our exclusive and connects even to TradingView, market delta and multicharts! Whereas competitors and peers can charge as low as 45 cents per order! Unfortunately, third-party companies rarely inform customers about these fees, but they are there and are also worth paying attention to. We will help you save money in trade, because we are professionals in this. Fill out the form to open an account and start trading.

Bank transfers

Compare for yourself: we do not charge any commissions for withdrawals or deposits. In some cases, we return your bank commission to your trading account. Also, the commission of Harris Trust bank when withdrawing funds from a trading account is only $40, regardless of the amount of funds.

In addition, withdrawal of funds through our bank is the fastest.

Forced closing of positions

Forced closing of positions with a 24-hour manual order-desk costs $25 per trade (in the case of margin calls, in cases when the contract expires and the client's trades are open, and in cases when the client calls and asks to close the deal for him).

Brokerage commission

The standard brokerage commission is $5 per trade (the average for the company's clients is $3), but it depends on the volume of trade you make.

Commission for transactions is debited during clearing, for all transactions of the previous trading session at the same time, when the exchange clears orders. In trading platforms, the commission is not displayed (except for some platforms, which in demo mode can display arbitrary values ​​to demonstrate this possibility, for example, in MetaTrader5).

Trading micro contracts

Recently, the CME exchange introduced trading in micro contracts, where the tick size is significantly lower than the main types of contracts. Unfortunately, you cannot set different commissions for different trading instruments on a trading account. Therefore, if you plan to trade only micro contracts, you can open a special account or sub-account for them, with a reduced commission. Check with your broker.
