Advantage Futures

Navigating Exchange Memberships and Incentive Programs

Did you know Advantage Futures staff can help guide you through the process?

March 2012

If you are like most traders, you are focused on trading and may not have the time to fully understand all of the nuances of exchange membership guidelines and fee incentive programs. Understanding which programs or memberships make the most sense for your style of trading can be a daunting task. While most of the futures exchanges have detailed information on their websites, it can be difficult to wade through all of the text and make an informed decision. In addition, once you have decided which programs apply to you, the process of applying for memberships can seem somewhat laborious.

Thankfully, Advantage Futures has an individual dedicated to assisting you in the process of applying to the various exchange memberships. Meet Margie DeLorme. Margie works closely with our clients as well as the futures exchanges and has helped countless traders work through the process of applying for exchange memberships.

So if you are having trouble understanding the difference between an IOM seat or an IMM seat or whether you qualify for a 106R or 106H, be sure to reach out to your client service representative who can put you in touch with Margie.
