If possible would some of the senior members or experienced CME or CBOT leasee answer some the questions I have regarding leasing a seat. I currently trade at a small boutique and have been given a larger allocation to trade the eminis. I would like to know what is the cost break down. I excute currently 2000 contracts a month, but it looks like my size will double if not tripple. I trade both YM's and NQ's I believe the lease seat for an IOM 6mos term is about $650.00. There is a $50 Globex fee per day. What is the CBOT lease cost ? What fee will a strong AAA clearing firm charge for my size. Any help would be great. Typically my senior VP would take care of this, but I got stuck with it since I'm getting more capital to trade.
