Stocks & Commodities V. 30:2 (49): Futures For You by Carley Garner
Futures For You by Carley Garner
WHAT'S A TYPICAL COMMISSION?
What kind of commission is typically charged to trade futures and options online or with a broker?
Before you can look at commission rates objectively, you must understand the background of the futures industry. In recent years, advances in technology have brought the futures and options markets closer to the average retail trader. Because of electronic trading, futures brokerage firms now implement tighter risk management techniques in their quest to prevent traders from losing more money than they have on deposit. Not only that, brokers are now willing to accept clients with much smaller account balances; charge less commission for their services; and offer market access with less interference from risk management teams.
