    Hey all, not sure how many financial planners, futures brokers etc are on here. But I'm actually taking a new position selling managed futures. It's base plus salary but I'm not sure the commissions are very competitive.

    When a broker sells managed futures, does anyone have any idea on the range of commission this would payout? I'm assuming its a certain percentage upfront and a renewal percentage every yr after the first yr for money left in the account?

    Also, when financial planners sell mutual funds, and ira's, how much do they make in commissions?

    Any help is GREATLY appreciated!!!!
