Futures Rates In Europe??

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by Risk Less, Mar 20, 2003.

  1. What do the European Futures Brokers charge to European Retail Customers for Futures?

    Any input would be appreciated!
     
  2. www.interactivebrokers.com
     
  3. LOL,

    Riskless doesn't know the rates in Europe like there was a chance Saddam was going to leave Iraq before the Bush ultimatum.

    Sometimes it's too easy read through a post. Next time how about making it a challenge.
     
  4. Yeah I agree with alterego. OK FFasttrade rates are low. More important issue IMO are high emini exchange fees vs Eurex fees.

    Bund, Estxx avg daily vol ~1.1M ; ~500k exch fees 0.4 ; 0.6 r/t
    Dax daily vol ~110k exch fee 1.0 r/t

    ES daily vol ~700k exch fee 2.3 r/t
    NQ daily vol ~250k exch fee 2.3 r/t

    Eurex can even increase rates for DAX to 2.0 without any loss in vol. Emini fees should be lowered to 1.0
     
  5. I asked about the Europpean Retail, not the IB's, FFastTrade's and the large institutions. The reason I asked this is: I was told that the European Market in Switzerland, Belgium and France were still paying in excess of $10 per side.

    A strong marketing campaign in Europe would be a good idea if this is still the case, don't you think? I could have used an alias if I was tryiong to fool anyone.
