Interactive Brokers Announces Drop in U.S. Futures & Futures Options Fees
GREENWICH, CT, April 12, 2010 — Interactive Brokers announces a reduction in fees charged to customers for trading U.S. Futures and Futures Options. In keeping with its tradition of being the low cost industry leader, Interactive Brokers is lowering and simplifying its U.S. Futures and Futures Options commission structure. Customers can now choose from two low cost pricing plans:
- Fixed Rate Plan. USD 0.85 per contract plus exchange and regulatory fees.
- Volume Tiered Plan. USD 0.25-0.85 per contract plus exchange, regulatory and carrying fees. Four different price tiers based on monthly trading volume are available.
Interactive Brokers can afford to be the low-cost provider because it executes, self-clears and builds its own trading technology in-house with a focus on automation. Interactive Brokers clients can trade equity, forex, fixed income, energy, metals, and other commodities futures and futures options worldwide from a single account.
In addition, we have simplified the tiers in our unbundled pricing structure for all non-U.S futures and futures options. Visit us at www.interactivebrokers.com/futures to learn more.
