    I have a client who just bought a Nymex seat - the commissions are a driver, but so is the capital gains parking spot.

    I have paid as low as 55 cents all trading about 60K contracts per month (120K total).
  3. 0.55 per side including everything?
    If so, that's nice saving.

    Yep. 0.55 per side. But I also trade a few thousand buys and a few thousand sells per day.
  5. i see, looks like spread trading is very scalable.

    What major contract can you trade under nymex's memebership?

    they only have nymex and nymex option.
