CME Seat Lease

Discussion in 'Financial Futures' started by JuniorCTA, Sep 8, 2010.

  1. I was wondering if anyone is familiar with or holds a IMM membership at CME can answer a few questions.

    Which one is better? Individual IMM or Corporate IMM?

    Can you trade from the floor with the individual membership?

    -Can you set-up a front end and trade strategies from the floor? (manual and algorithmic)

    Is it worth it?

    All comments are greatly appreciated.

    It's a simple volume-driven business proposition.

    And yet another reason why HF trading isn't necessarily the best route.

    The real problem is that buying or leasing a membership doesn't get you a better message-to-fill ratio threshold from the exchange.

    Think about that.
