IB Flat Rate or Tiered for Futures?

    I use flat rates with IB, trading future. Can someone tell me the break-even daily (or monthly total) contract size to favor any pricing?

    Also, is the pricing (trading volume) based on a single account? or the master account (combined)?

    For April, I paid about $900 commissions on the main account and about $1,400 total all accounts combined.

    So I do not think the tiered pricing would favor me since my volumes are still small.

    How do you think?

    you know what products you trade and what volumes you trade, why not create a spreadsheet model and calculat it on your own? is not like we have the details of your volumes or products traded... just look at their FAQ for assistance as to what you should have on the spreadsheet...
