Fair, straightforward pricing

There are no hidden fees or complicated pricing structures with futures trading. Futures trades are $2.25 per contract, plus exchange and regulatory fees, and that's it. There are no clearing fees, no routing or platform fees, and no daily carrying fees for positions held overnight.

Note: Exchange fees may vary by exchange and by product. Regulatory fees are assessed by the National Futures Association (NFA) and are currently $0.02 per contract.
