*Low day trade margins are a double-edged sword, as lower margins mean you have higher leverage and therefore higher risk.    All commissions quoted are not inclusive of exchange and NFA fees unless otherwise noted.  Apex does not charge for real-time futures market data, but the exchanges where products are traded do.  For example, the CME charges $2-12 per month depending on the type of data you require.  Please contact us for pricing for the specific exchanges where you would like to have real-time market data.

Trading Futures, Options on Futures, and commodity interest trading involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition, circumstances, and industry knowledge. You may lose all or more of your initial investment. Past results are not necessarily indicative of future results. Online trading has inherent risk due to system response and access times that may vary due to market conditions, system performance, volume and other factors. An investor should understand these and additional risks before trading.
