    If I open an account with IB to trade bonds and emini sp electronically, do they charge for those feeds? On the website it says 'cbot floor based' 55.00 and 'cme floor based' 35.00. Not sure if electronic is the same as floor based....
  2. Free if you do $30+ commissions per month. $10 otherwise.

    But look for the bundle of equity and futures (@ $10/month). The 'floor' prices are quite different and more expensive. If you don't know what the difference is, then you don't want them!

    Riddle could you please tell me what the difference is with floor based fees :confused:

  7. No. Electronic and floor are different.

    I think you are going to subscribe the electronic one since you trade electronic instruments.

    The fee is US$10 (waivable if you trade more than US$30).
  8. you don't need the floor based data for what you are,for bonds anyway,you can still enter an order to the floor if ecbot goes down.
