CME Membership

 

 

High volume traders of CME future products can take advantage of reduced exchange fees on each trade they make, leasing an IOM seat, or buying an IOM seat. For example, normally, retail traders pay $2.36/rt in exchange fees and $.04/rt in NFA fees for an Emini S&P trade.  As an owner or lessee of a CME seat traders do not pay any NFA fees and enjoy the reduced exchange fees below. Please contact us for further information or for application.

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. Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Futures, options on Futures, and retail off-exchange foreign currency transactions involve substantial risk and are not appropriate for all investors. Please read Risk Disclosure Statement for Futures and Options prior to applying for an account.

*Low 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 any fees, unless otherwise noted. Apex does not charge for futures data, the CME charges $2-6 per month depending on the type of data you require.
