IB - non-US traders penalized under new futures plan (futures commission raised) In fact IB raised its commission slightly in some places too. It removed the tier "1-300" and replaced it with "1-1000" tier. Commission is higher for unbundled plans in nearly all currencies for the first 1000 contracts. You pay 5 Euro/GBP/SGD more for the first 1000 contracts. 10 swiss franc 50 Swedish Krona 50 HKD 1000 Yen Unchanged for AUD. But you save 10 USD for the first 1000 contracts. Good news for US traders but bad news for non-US traders. This is a punishment to all non-US traders. Could IB please slightly reduce the commission so as to not penalize us under the new plan?
