Stock brokers offer commission-free trading - why don't futures brokers?
Stockbrokers can offer commission-free trading because they use the ‘Payment for Order Flow’ (PFOF) business model. Payment for order flow involves the stockbroker routing customer orders to market makers or high-frequency trading firms, who pay the broker for the opportunity to execute these trades. Market makers and HFT firms may profit from the bid-ask spread or other market inefficiencies, while the stockbroker receives compensation for order flow without charging commissions to its customers. There is no such business model available to futures brokers, which is why commissions are charged.
Do you offer CME Futures Exchange Membership
Yes, we can assist you with obtaining a CME futures exchange membership to lower the exchange fees charged per trade. Contact Us to learn more.
