Hey ET, So I have a friend from a trading chat room that I am a regular at forward me the e-mail for the new CTG pricing plan. The just of the plan is 99 bucks a month for Sterling Pro, Lightspeed, or Laser... or 49 bucks for Sterling Lite and free Fusion DMA (which is junk in my opinion) THAN you get hit for 99 bucks a month for data access fess (which is fine...) AND 69 bucks for "risk-admin fee." Let say a few things that sound fishy here. 1.) I have a feeling that CTG was catching wind of competition and decided to "cut costs" to traders by lowering the software costs.... but actually this cost is the same, if not more, because these new fees are being added. 2.) What in the heck is a "risk admin fee?!" I have never EVER heard of a prop charge for anything like this... I can understand that props want to assess the risk that their traders incur BUT this fee shouldn't exist in my opinion. 3.) Funny how I personally received an offer from TM Global and both CTG and TM Global have a VERY similar layout (payment/costs, contract agreement, etc). Now, this isn't wrong per-say.... but it's funny how the same group thinks they can spin-off into 2 groups and try to apply the same sham. SO my question is this ET. What exactly are you paying for with these groups? Does it cost money to actually license these platforms for CTG and TM Global... yes, it probably does. But, lest we forget, when you sign to CTG, you're signing WTS's paperwork.... Which is funny because they have traders sign on with LITTLE TO NO MONTHLY COST (besides market access, etc). CTG and TM offer little to nothing in the line of events, guidance, training, etc... so I know their traders don't pay for that. Again, profit is profit for these groups and yes, people need to make a living but, forgive me if I don't feed into this piggy bank. I have no attachment to this group but, I would much rather look at props like T3, SMB (ehhh, maybe), even Star Alliance. What are your thoughts here ET?
